My practice is concentrated in business related transactions and litigation with an emphasis on franchising, licensing and IP matters. In addition to my legal experience in franchising related matters, I have also been a multiple unit franchisee and a partner in a retail franchisor. My practice also includes construction related litigation and arbitration. I am also a trained mediator and arbitrator.
