Our View

“Too many companies are reluctant to involve their legal counsel early in the
process. That tells me that they perceive lawyers as holding them back. I work hard to
change that perception – to be the lawyer with whom companies want to collaborate, the
lawyer who works with them constructively and creatively to surpass their business goals
in a legally prudent way.”
