Corporate Counsel


Strategic Corporate Counsel

Public and private companies face a myriad of complex regulatory rules, including SEC compliance, and director and investor scrutiny. Companies also come to find out too the litigious nature of our society and the need to defend against non-meritorious claims that are just seeking underhanded financial gain.

Public and private companies of all sizes need a strategic litigation team with the depth and knowledge to guide them successfully through the maze of rules and regulations applied. When engaged in transactions, public companies require lawyers with an intense and practical focus on getting deals done. Our corporate lawyers provide a complete solution to the compliance and transactional needs of public and private companies of all sizes in a wide range of industries.

Our litigation and corporate governance chair has been published by Practising Law Institute and The Wall Street Lawyer and has served as a corporate litigator and corporate transactional lawyer, who understands high-stakes litigation, crisis management, and art of a deal.
