Q & A
What do clients value about your work?
My practical business approach and ability to find creative solutions. I approach every transaction with the mindset that I should "dig a little deeper" to find the best way to set up a transaction that aligns with my clients' interests. For example, a client might come to me and say they want to sell a property outright, but it might be more cost-effective to sell through an entity transaction. There is never just one way to structure a deal.
What did you learn from the last downturn?
I worked on matters stemming from the wind-down of Lehman Brothers and spent several years picking apart deals that failed. It gave me great insight into what can go wrong and how I can better protect my clients.
