About Me

Obtaining results requires not only skillful lawyering, but also a keen understanding of business.  At Leech Tishman, we’re proud of our legal accomplishments, but distinguish ourselves by our reputation of being business-minded professionals who practice law.


 


At Leech Tishman, we listen to our clients, apply our depth of experience, formulate a strategy, and then vigorously pursue results.  Expect it.


 


I have advised a wide range of clients, from multinational corporations to entrepreneurial enterprises, on issues such as corporate organization and administration, and legal matters related to electrical power, petroleum, telecommunications, industrial and civil facilities for U.S. and foreign corporations, governmental entities and joint ventures. I am also experienced in international sourcing of material, contractor-subcontractor and owner-vendor issues, infrastructure issues, private placements, research and development projects, investments in high technology concerns, “partnering” and other joint venture vehicles, acquisitions, corporate planning and structure, construction, financing, architectural design and engineering issues, equipment leasing, and commercial agreements involving U.S., European, Asian and Middle Eastern business concerns.
