For 15+ years, I have represented public companies by serving as a business lawyer and trusted counsel with specialization in securities law, governance, corporate finance, M&A, and high-profile litigation.
I spent the early part of my career in private practice representing and advising corporations on securities, tax, and major transactional matters. Over time, the culture and business model of major law firms did not appeal to me. I even considered a career transition—selling hotdogs outside of Fenway Park was on the table! Thankfully, an opportunity to shift to an in-house corporate position was presented to me. This ignited my enthusiasm for business, and led to a long-term position with Navistar International Corporation, where I currently serve as Senior Vice President and General Counsel.
My accountabilities include corporate governance, securities, financing, tax, and foreign legal affairs. During my time with Navistar, I participated in significant events including:
— Mergers & Acquisitions
— Corporate Governance & Finance
— Securities Law
— Complex Lawsuits
— SEC Investigations
— Board & Leadership Turnovers
— Corporate & Legal Department Restructurings
— Stockholder Meetings
In addition to my strengths in securities and corporate law, I am a hands-on leader and mentor with the ability to translate complex concepts and information into clear, understandable business language.
My strengths include negotiating large-scale agreements and transactions, navigating sensitive internal investigations and lawsuits, mitigating thorny disclosure issues, and sustaining trusting relationships while ensuring compliance and protecting the interests of the corporation.
