Dave’s strength lies in his practical advice designed to meet clients’ objectives, not frustrate them. He understands that his clients need creative solutions—which are rarely the most conservative path—so he works hard to design answers that both achieve objectives and mitigate risk.
Dave especially enjoys helping clients transform themselves by designing and implementing complex policies or transactions and resolving complicated litigation. His clients consider Dave an extension of their human resources and legal teams, a true partner.
