About
In the modern age, legal counsel exists to achieve business goals. Through legal in-house positions, as well as operational, sales, and financial roles, I have honed skills necessary to close profitable deals, and to ensure compliance every step of the way. I am a true commercial generalist; an expert at developing and executing risk-mitigating strategies, and at drafting and negotiating complex documents of every legal type. Because of my ability to quickly assess issues and develop appropriately creative solutions, colleagues at every level of my clients' organizations seek to engage me as a business partner of first resort.
