I have served as the Director of Legal Affairs for the U.S. business operation of a global manufacturer of building products and as Assistant Counsel for a national real estate developer.  I now use that  extensive in-house legal experience to advise and counsel small to mid-size businesses and startups.

During my 12 year career heading the manufacturer’s legal department (and for 5 years before that position when I was in private legal practice representing the company), I advised and counseled its U.S. senior management team and board of directors on the legal issues applicable to the company’s industrial sectors. I also drafted and negotiated legal documents for the development, supply, distribution, transport, marketing, and sale of company’s products for commercial and consumer use. Additionally, I handled, on a nationwide basis, all plant acquisitions, commercial and industrial leasing, real estate financing, and the construction contracts for new plants and plant expansion projects.  I also played a significant role in corporate governance by authoring the company’s 2009 code of professional conduct and handling its internal investigations.

The balance of my legal career has been entirely in the real estate industry. I have represented (and continue to represent) builders, developers and landlords of commercial, industrial and residential projects. I have prepared the legal documents for planned unit developments and condominium projects for residential, mixed-use and industrial purposes, and I also now handle affordable/workforce housing projects. The real estate industry is the sole reason I moved to Florida in the 1980s and I am proud to call the “sunshine” state my home.
