About Me

I advise startups and institutional investors as companies reach liquidity.

As a member of Latham’s Executive Committee, with a robust corporate practice, I am focused on deploying comprehensive strategies to meet clients’ business and legal needs. Through my various senior leadership roles on firmwide committees, I understand the need to provide our clients with pragmatic, business oriented advice — which is particularly important for my-high growth startup company clients. As the former founding general counsel of Global Crossing Ltd., a worldwide telecommunications company, I have an intimate understanding of the opportunities and challenges entrepreneurs face every day.

Being part of the Emerging Companies Practice allows me the opportunity to assist entrepreneurs as they reach their well-deserved point of liquidity in the form of a sale. I represent communications, FinTech, IT, and other late-stage growth technology companies, as well as banks and private equity firms. My recent clients have included Global Crossing Ltd, Amp’d Mobile, Siemens, Congruex and Columbus Nova.
