About me

The global economy has moved cross-border legal issues to the forefront of business strategy. One way or another, all businesses feel the effects:

- transnational giants know the cost of compliance abroad; 
- emerging transnational companies face the constant risk of noncompliance;
- domestic companies are losing out on opportunities abroad.

To remain competitive, companies must use a global strategy to maximize profits, using cross-border employment, foreign consumer markets, and foreign tax advantages.



I give businesses immediate access to cross-border strategy. I help clients of all sizes formulate, refine, and implement global strategies for the global stage. I constructively advise in-house managers, while assertively managing outside counsel in jurisdictions abroad. 

With rapid results, businesses get the knowledge and resources they need to compete on the global stage.
