  • Joseph Abraham Bahgat

    Melinda and I recently worked together on a complex, international investment transaction, and because it involved several areas of U.S. and international law, it required collaboration by several attorneys. Melinda was the conduit that made everything happen, and I would look forward to working with her again.
