When clients are interested in starting a new business venture, I work with them to discuss common pitfalls and possible solutions. I help clients manage risks when buying or selling a business, entering into a new contract, or protecting what they have worked hard to build. I assist clients with non-compete agreements, employment contracts and real estate deals.

I help bankers and financial services professionals navigate the complexities of commercial loan transactions efficiently and responsively.

My experience with electronic payments processors, sales organizations and agents is a valuable tool that I use to aid my clients in the electronic payments industry.

And when issues arise that cannot be resolved through negotiation, my courtroom experience will help enforce your rights.
