I joined KW to be a part of my clients’ business strategy and success, using my expertise to solve their key business problems.  My advice is not framed in just legal counsel, I am here to work hand in hand with my clients.   

I am an attorney working in Intellectual Property, and have expanded my practice to include transactional and business strategies. I’m also a scientist with a background in pharmaceuticals. With a wide range of experience, having worked in both law firms and in-house, I am able to offer my clients a unique business perspective.    

My practice includes IP procurement and strategies, business and commercial transactions, and general business strategy legal consultation. My clients vary from the healthcare and pharma industry to environmental based companies. I was in-house counsel at a medium-sized pharmaceutical company providing strategic and legal counsel to various departments including R&D development, clinical operations, manufacturing, regulatory, compliance, and commercial operations.

I am member of the Arizona and Massachusetts bar. My first-person service approach to my client relationships, as well as my knowledgeable and varied background allow me to offer you the clarity and the transparency you seek as a client. I don’t want you to hire a lawyer, I want you to find a partner in your business who can help you find success.
