I am an attorney in private practice in Wellesley, Massachusetts. My work is divided between general business law and dispute resolution. The former is mostly outside general counsel to small businesses in a variety of industries, some transactional work (mostly M&A, financing), overflow work from venture funds and so forth. The latter is mostly negotiated early dispute resolution of various sorts with some arbitration and mediation and a particular interest in partner disputes. I do a small amount of family law work, typically involving family businesses. Finally, I sit on a corporate board and an advisory board for private companies. I am co-chair of the American Bar Association Dispute Resolution Section's Collaborative Law Committee and co-chair of the Business Law Committee, a director and Treasurer of the Massachusetts Collaborative Law Council.
