Service Description

I have negotiated and drafted the full range of corporate and commercial agreements and have guided many companies through the initial phases of operation and through difficult periods. My experience as a litigator includes serving as sole counsel in litigation against Oracle Corporation for claims of misappropriation of trade secrets and breach of contract and against PolyGram Records for breach of contract and unfair competition, and as co-counsel against DreamWorks for copyright infringement.

My experience also encompasses working closely with small and medium sized companies in developing business plans and in implementing business and operational strategies. Thus, I understand and have hands-on knowledge of the legal aspects of corporate law and commercial transactions and the practical and business aspects as well.

I am able to begin immediately, am easily accessible, and enjoy working closely with clients on a long-term basis.
