What is your approach to being an attorney?
I seek to be responsive and exercise good judgment, with focus on client’s business objectives rather than getting lost in “legalese.” I have found that, in many instances, short and concise trumps long form “boilerplate.”

What is your most unusual transaction?
There have been several, as each deal is unique, but I would have to say the closing of a sale of a company, where participants were required to wear 18th century clothes and the documents were signed with a quill pen and sealed with a wax stamp, ranks right up there.
