My Approach

I provide high quality corporate-commercial legal advice as needed in a flexible manner which best suits my clients’ business and legal requirements. My goal is to become your trusted legal advisor and to understand your business, goals and objectives. By understanding your business, both inside and out, I can provide creative and practical solutions to your legal and business issues at substantially less cost than traditional law firm lawyers with comparable experience.

This approach works particularly well for businesses that do not have in-house legal counsel. For businesses that do, I can supplement and augment your in-house team on special projects or through peak demand periods at a reasonable cost.

Whether you need guidance and support on your day to day operations, or need to have a contract prepared or reviewed, I can help. I can also provide as needed transaction support.

I bring a strong sense of teamwork and collaboration to my engagements and will work seamlessly with your senior management team and business leads.
