About Me

I have extensive experience handling complex commercial international and domestic disputes. I joined Summit Law Group from Kirkland & Ellis LLP in Chicago, where I was involved in a broad spectrum of cases (both topically and geographically). I have tried cases in state and federal courts, and before international tribunals. I have also been designated a Fellow of The Center for International Legal Studies in Austria.
