Practice/Organization Description

Growing businesses, active investors and complex public companies hire me for my expertise in securities regulations and business transactional matters. I provide them with analyses of whether they are complying with business and securities laws. I draft disclosure materials and internal corporate policies. And, I represent their interests and advise them through the process of corporate acquisitions and corporate finance transactions.

I work out of the first floor of my house and rely on independent contract specialists for administrative support, so the atmosphere of my practice is relatively open, relaxed and not influenced by the stress of conducting business with other law partners. My fees are significantly less than they would be if I worked in a larger firm. But because my experience, expertise and my responsiveness equals or exceeds that of my competition at the larger firms, my fees are generally higher than those of most solo practitioners.

My relationship to most of my clients is as much that of a business consultant as it is a provider of legal support. Because my value to my clients can only be achieved after closely studying their businesses and following the impacts of the law on their business practices, my work is often intellectually challenging, personally engaging and requires an active and ongoing study of the law. And, since the law that I specialize in directly effects the fundamentals of corporate decision-making (investment, governance, business combinations and transformations), my advice can shape the direction of corporate policy and business operations on a macro scale.
