Q & A
What sets you apart as a corporate attorney?
My Masters of Law in Tax allows me to look at corporate transactions from a different perspective, and I am able to break down a deal in a way that clients can understand and apply to their business.
How do you bring innovation to your practice?
I am on a team creating a knowledge management system which will allow us to counsel clients with added time- and cost-efficiency. The system contains a catalog of joint venture agreements that we can search based on the attributes a particular agreement shares with the current needs of a client. It allows us to utilize tested approaches in a simple, formulaic way
What trait of yours adds value to the client?
Being able to perform well under pressure is ultimately the best thing I can offer my clients. Particularly with respect to joint venture agreements, which are often tied to real estate closings and project delivery timelines, I operate under very tight deadlines that require quick turnarounds. You have to be able to quickly organize and map out a strategy, be willing to work it over until it’s done, and be careful not to sacrifice diligence in order to get it finished.
