In addition to bringing considerable brainpower, decades of wide-ranging experience and legal acumen to my practice, I always strive to understand the priorities of not only my clients, but other participants in a transaction. As a corporate attorney, I know that cordiality and professionalism combined with zealous representation of my clients are keys to a successful transaction as my clients are likely to be working with the other participants long after my role has ended. I also am quite adept at identifying the most important issues to both my clients and other participants. My perceptiveness and emotional intelligence go a long way to getting deals done in a manner that preserves business relationships. Along with my skills, experience and flexibility, I also very much enjoy what I do which I believe benefits my clients enormously.
