I really enjoy tackling complex regulatory matters and devising user-friendly solutions that enable our clients to achieve their business goals.

I counsel technology and life science companies and investors on (i) the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA)/anti-bribery laws, (ii) US sanctions and embargoes, (iii) anti-money laundering /anti-terrorist financing laws, and (iv) national security reviews of M&A transactions and investments conducted by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS).

I also help companies conduct discreet internal investigations if a difficult regulatory issue arises before it could impair a pending investment or acquisition.

When I am not playing lawyer, I enjoy intensely competitive table tennis tournaments with my kids and watching our puppy (behind me in my picture) pick on larger dogs in our neighborhood who are well outside his weight class.
