In my complex commercial litigation work, I frequently manage and advise on hundreds of cases over multiple jurisdictions. My extensive trial experience and case management skills allow me to help clients both in and out of the courtroom and provide them with consistent, prudent service from pleadings to appeals. I also offer strategically streamlined services and alternative fee arrangements to deliver clients highly efficient and cost-effective legal counsel, particularly when it’s warranted on certain large matters.
