Full Bio on

When clients ask me questions I know the answers to, it gives me purpose. When they ask questions I don’t know the answers to, it gives me progress. I’d like to think it works the same way for clients when I pose questions to them. When a client can’t respond to a business question with a ready answer, the question may plant a seed and encourage the client to articulate the organization’s goals and business issues in greater detail. From there, we can work together to formulate more comprehensive and effective strategies. It’s reassuring to clients that they can count on me to ask the right questions. It takes a real understanding of a growing business’s needs to advise the company in complex matters relating to corporate governance, securities offerings, acquisitions, and compliance, or to represent the company in a venture capital financing transaction. My practice is about investing in my clients, one question at a time.
