About me

For over 15 years, my practice has focused on complex commercial litigation, with particular emphasis on the defense of securities litigation, shareholder and consumer class actions, derivative actions, and corporate governance litigation. I also have experience with conducting internal investigations for both public and private companies, and representing companies and corporate management in SEC inquiries and proceedings. In addition, I have extensive experience with non-competition and non-solicitation disputes, theft and misuse of trade secrets, and other employment matters. I have advised companies of all sizes, in a variety of industries, on avoiding, defending, prosecuting, and resolving litigation.
