About me

After practicing for a decade in prominent New York City law firms and serving as general counsel to a nationwide investment firm, I continue to counsel clients in commercial transactions, mergers and acquisitions, and business services. I too am entrepreneurial, having been involved in a startup of a newspaper and also founding my own law firm, and have traits that I share with my clients. Getting deals done. Sense of humor. Knowledge of law. Thoroughness.
