About me

I am a Director in McLane's Litigation Department, and Chair of our Privacy and Data Security Group. In my 18 years as a lawyer, I have managed, litigated and resolved numerous commercial matters involving business, technology, and employment issues in New Hampshire, Massachusetts, New England, and around the country.

Drawing on deep experience with complex commercial litigation, I have developed particular areas of expertise in business, technology and employment litigation. For example, I handle disputes concerning misappropriation of trade secrets, and breaches of non-competition and non-disclosure agreements. Likewise, cases involving corporate and shareholder disputes, breaches of the duty of loyalty, and unfair competition are areas in which I excel. My aptitudes with technology and commercial litigation also have enabled me to develop an extensive body of knowledge and skill with electronic discovery.

Combining my business, technology and employment interests, I have developed a depth and breadth of experience in privacy and data security. My résumé includes managing data security audits, preparing and implementing written security policies, addressing day-to-day security issues, and investigating and remediating security breaches. I also create and implement information use policies, advise clients about workplace privacy, social media, and customer and consumer privacy, and handle claims against companies for invasion of data privacy.
