About Me

I specialize in identifying the best attorney to address a client's particular needs, and in assembling a team of complementary legal counsel where appropriate.  My experience is fairly unique, including nearly three decades of hiring and managing attorneys as General Counsel of a large corporation and then as a CEO/executive.  Our consistent success over the years demonstrates that the single most important factor in achieving an optimal and cost-effective legal outcome is to select the right attorneys coupled with ongoing experienced oversight and assistance.
