I practice corporate and securities law, with a particular focus on the representation of early-stage companies and the private funds that invest in and advise them.

A significant part of my practice involves complex transactional matters, including fund formations, financings, and mergers and acquisitions.   

My clients are active in numerous sectors, notably energy and finance.
