For me, it starts and ends with teamwork, and a mindset that we must always elevate the interests of our clients and of our firm above self-interest. It’s a mindset that I developed over years of competing on athletic fields and while serving in the United States Navy. My client and people-first, collaborative approach helps our firm build strong professional and personal relationships with our clients and gets everyone working toward a common goal, whether I’m helping a closely-held family business or a publicly traded corporation. My experience includes business formation, restructurings, mergers and acquisitions, financing and investment matters, development matters, labor and employment issues, and commercial transactions.
