About me

About me: I am a partner with Foley & Lardner LLP and a member of the firm’s General Commercial Litigation and White Collar Defense Practices and Health Care Industry Team.


Prior to joining Foley, I was a Partner with Epstein Becker & Green, P.C. 


My practice focuses on complex civil, commercial, and health law litigation and white collar criminal defense.


My experience includes counseling corporations and individuals in a wide range of industries.  I have represented clients in federal and state trial and appellate courts, arbitrations and other modes of alternative dispute resolution.


My diverse litigation experience includes representation of:


  • Public and private entities in actions brought under the Federal False Claims Act


  • Health insurers in a wide-range of statutory, contract, and rate disputes


  • Individuals under investigation by the United States Department of Justice for alleged health-care related criminal violations


  • Publicly traded and privately held corporations in a variety of contract, business tort, derivative and securities litigation


  • Real estate developers, landlords and tenants in complex real estate disputes


  • Individuals involved in limited partnership and close corporation disputes


  • Parties in sophisticated employment matters, including non-competition and trade secret actions and injunctions


  • Banking institutions pursuing claims for defaulted Latin American debt bonds


I am also committed to pro bono work, and have focused on representing asylum seekers.  Among other representations, I have successfully represented a tortured political prisoner from Tanzania; a gay man from Uganda; a Salvadoran woman whose family is targeted by violent gangs, a Sudanese professor who was tortured after speaking out on Darfur; a female political activist from Cameroon; and a political dissident from Haiti.


I am admitted to practice in the state of Massachusetts, and am also permitted to practice before the U.S. Supreme Court; U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit; U.S. Court of Appeals for the First Circuit; and the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts.


I was selected for inclusion in the 2004-2009 lists of Massachusetts Super Lawyers®. Only 5% of the lawyers in the state were selected. 


I serve as the chairman of the board of directors of Temple Beth Zion in Brookline, Massachusetts and also serve as a member of the personnel committee of the Solomon Schechter Day School of Greater Boston.
