Litigation is serious business. Losing in court can be costly. It can affect how you conduct business, who runs the business, and harm your company’s reputation. For complex business litigation, you need a powerful advocate in your corner.
I help companies who want to win in court. I have been called a “real trial lawyer” as well as a “talented litigator” who “efficiently manages discovery with an eye toward summary judgment and trial.” I have won trials both for and against the government, defeated complex cases through dispositive motions, and resolved litigations through favorable settlements.
In particular, I help businesses seeking to win contract disputes, protect trade secrets, challenge competitors using antitrust and unfair competition law, and resolve disputes among business owners.
