"Describing myself as a Business Litigation lawyer may not sufficiently describe exactly what it is I do. Generally, business litigation involves business disputes involving money and/or property in areas such as banking, mergers, contracts, owner disputes, licensing issues and many other areas that are critical to businesses. I don’t only focus on the business problem, I also focus on the people to whom that problem matters most. My clients have come to expect a high degree of focus from me; achieving successful results for my clients is first and foremost."
