"Clients relate to my engaging approach and my appreciation for the challenges they face and the hard work they put in. You can’t take anything for granted these days, so planning, expertise, and attention to detail are essential and I think my ability to understand the wide range of issues employers face, from a granular perspective to the macro-level management and governance picture, enables me to provide strategic and efficient counsel."
