As a trusted business advisor and legal counsel, I counsel senior leadership at client businesses about operations, governance, growth, and risk management. My clients include: technology and telecommunications companies, consulting firms, federal government contractors, associations, national and regional financial institutions, and insurance companies.
I am the Leader of the Litigation Department at LeClairRyan.
When not practicing law, I enjoy golf, sailing, fishing, and tennis, particularly with my family. The alternative to practicing law would have been to be a charter captain. I crewed on a tall ship for several summers.
