What do you do?

I help business leaders, partners and leadership teams to clarify, improve, and navigate their most important relationships – with each other and their employees.  As most successful executives know, when the pressure of building, running or selling a company is on it imperative the personal goals and trepidations of top management are anticipated, aligned and managed.  That is my role.

Who are you?

I am a seasoned attorney and personal advisor for top executives in highly competitive organizations. For nearly 20 years, my focus has been to help structure and negotiate their hopes and expectations for a successful outcome – whether a new business, sale, opportunity or investment.

What if I already have a lawyer?

I do not duplicate, replace nor engage with in-house attorneys nor law firms representing the companies my clients lead.  My focus is not the company; it is the people leading it. However, when lawyers are not already in place, I do (often) negotiate various transactions.

How do I work with you?

My clients schedule calls and meetings with me as needed via a shared confidential online calendar. They purchase a block of hours I work against as needed, and I provide them a statement of the time used at the end of each month.  I recommend a no-charge 15-minute consultation to discuss your needs.
