About
I graduated from Duke Law School and also have a masters degree in accounting. My practice has focused on commercial matters from contract drafting to dispute resolution. I am well-versed in large international EPC contracts including build, own, operate agreements and public private partnerships. But I am also familiar with employment law, international tax law, and corporate formation and governance.

I enjoy legal research and writing, especially briefs and motions even during my in-house practice.
