I litigate, arbitrate, and try multimillion dollar disputes for individuals and businesses located in the United States and abroad. I have experience in a wide array of legal and procedural areas including: pharmaceutical, product liability, and environmental torts; multidistrict and class action cases involving antitrust, securities, and consumer fraud violations; individual personal injury and wrongful death claims arising from general negligence, medical malpractice, toxic exposures, defective products (drugs, autos, medical devices); lawsuits on behalf of businesses, partnerships, and franchisees for damages related to fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, breach of contract, and statutory claims; and claims for the owners of intellectual property seeking damages for theft of trade secrets, patent infringement, and copyright violations. I represent both plaintiffs and defendants as well as large corporations and individuals. I evaluate potential cases everyday with an eye towards investing my and money for clients. I've been asked to join pre-existing teams prior to trial, and take over lead counsel just prior to trial. I have also agreed to take cases that other lawyers or law firms believed did not justify the investment of time and expense necessary to achieve the client's objectives. I prefer merit based fee arrangements that tie my ultimate compensation to the results I obtain for my client. I have very extensive experience representing international clients from outside the United States suing for injuries suffered abroad in places like Europe, South America, Africa, the Caribbean, and Southeast Asia.
