What do you focus on for your clients

I’m a corporate and commercial lawyer—focused on contracts, company secretarial and governance, and regulatory compliance. Given this broad application, I’m completely sector-agnostic—although in private practice I primarily acted for financial services clients.

Tell us about your professional background

I’ve worked in private practice and in-house in the U.S. and the U.K. My law firm experience includes practicing at Mudge Rose Guthrie Alexander & Ferdon LLP; Dewey Ballantine LLP; Schulte Roth & Zabel LLP; Sidley Austin LLP; and Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft LLP. At each of these firms, I primarily supported financial services clients, covering a variety of securities products. In the corporate sector, I’ve worked at Pfizer Inc. (i.e., pharmaceuticals); AARP (i.e., interest group advocacy); and LexisNexis (i.e., legal analyses and publishing).

Tell us a bit about your working style and other interests 

Stemming from my wide-ranging substantive experience, I readily devise and implement comprehensive approaches to solving diverse, multidimensional problems. I enjoy spending time with my family—including Daisy, our Golden Retriever. I’m also a ski nut—devoted to furthering my 10 year old daughter’s interest in the sport despite her many other competing activities and interests.
