Q & A
What attracted you to corporate law?
I have always enjoyed the advisory capacity of being a corporate attorney. On each transaction that I work on, I counsel my client on both the technical legal aspects of the transaction as well as big picture business considerations. I think that this pragmatic approach is the future of practicing corporate law. Clients are increasingly looking past lawyers with just legal expertise to ones that also have business acumen and can provide practical guidance.
What do you most enjoy about working at Bilzin Sumberg?
Bilzin Sumberg's reputation as trusted counselors who are intimately familiar with their clients' businesses and industries is unrivaled in the wider Miami legal community. This dovetails perfectly with my dedication to serving both the legal and business needs of my clients. I also value the firm's operational model. It is large enough to have all of the resources needed to provide exceptional service to our clients, while lean enough to still feel like a close-knit family. The firm also strongly encourages cross-collaboration across its practice groups, resulting in synergies for the client while building rewarding working relationships across teams.
