I joined this firm in 1990 after working at Willkie Farr & Gallagher. That was 27 years ago, and I wanted to have a closer connection to clients and matters and to be more hands-on. Since then, my partners and I have worked together to build a firm that gets close to our clients, that takes on their problems as our own, and that works hard  to handle their problems and matters as if they were our own. That means focusing on client service, focusing on client needs, being responsive and, of course, being cost-effective. That also means sweating every detail, feeling every bump in the road and sharing the burdens of the process with the client every step of the way.

Over the years, I have been involved with a diverse range of clients and matters. I have been involved with numerous family business interests, closely held companies and partnerships, financial services firms, private equity firms, insurance companies, real estate developers and operators, corporate officers and directors, professional service firms, not-for-profits, investors and entrepreneurs, to name just a few.
