About Me

Specialties:

• Privacy Regulation, Compliance & Consulting
• Regulatory and Administrative Compliance
• Real Estate Site Acquisition & Permitting
• Business Litigation
• Land Use and Real Estate Litigation


---


I concentrate my practice in two general areas, business law and real estate development law.

For my business clients, I assist in the full life-cycle of traditional and high-technology ventures including privacy regulation and compliance, choice of entity and formation decisions, partnership, capitalization and financing, contracting, licensing and intellectual property matters, and the resolution of business disputes and other challenges.

For my real estate development clients I focus on real estate development, affordable housing, permitting, land use and zoning matters, as well as the corporate, partnership and other business and litigation issues inherent in the business of development.

In addition, I am an Adjunct Professor of Law at the New England School of Law where I teach Legal Research and Writing.

I am also active in my community, serving as the director of the Under 14 Program for the Framingham United Soccer Club and as a coach for a U8 team and a U14 boys team. When not injured, I play soccer and am a bicyclist and jogger (when not recovering from soccer injuries). I serve on the Zoning Board of Appeals on Framingham and am proud to be a Member of the Board of the Michael Lisnow Respite Center in Hopkinton. In the past, I have served as President of the Board of the Dismas House of Massachusetts, as a Mock Trial Coach in the Worcester Middle Schools and as a Human Rights Committee Member for Charles River Health Management.
