I have counseled many businesses, from the smallest to very large companies, from routine corporate actions to major transactions. Among other things I have specialized in finance, working with lenders and borrowers on standard (at low cost) to complicated financings, including leveraged leases, stock and bond securities, taxable and tax-exempt bonds, and all kinds of security, from receivables, equipment and inventory to real estate, equity interests and other unusual collateral.
I pride myself in accomplishing my client's objectives efficiently and effectively. My computer literacy and ability to avoid delegating except where it is cost effective means that my clients work directly with me and not through layers of staff.
My undergraduate and graduates degrees in English and Comparative Literature have helped me develop exceptional writing skills and the ability to expalin complex legal concerns simply and clearly.
My interests include baseball, science fiction and music. I enjoy opera and classical music and have developed my baritone voice in various venues.
