What do you focus on?
I concentrate my practice on commercial and products liability litigation, including toxic tort, utility company defense, personal injury defense and complex business disputes in both federal and state courts as well as export compliance, government contracts and investigations.
Most recently, my focus is on toxic tort and real estate litigation where I leverage my extensive motion and trial experience in state and federal courts, both at Nixon Peabody and as a federal prosecutor in the U.S. Marine Corps.
My export compliance focus is on clients’ internal compliance processes through the use of compliance manuals, classification charts and checklists. I also work with clients to develop ITAR compliance strategies and advise them on the necessary processes required of businesses, including registration, licensing and disclosures. My regulatory experience involves analyzing and interpreting the ITAR, the EAR, and the U.S. sanctions laws administered by OFAC and helping clients understand new developments.
