I am a graduate from Brown University and Harvard Law School. After clerking for a federal judge in the SDNY, I served as an Assistant US Attorney in the SDNY. I then went into private practice and was a partner in three law firms, and a General Counsel of an investment bank. I retired as an active trial lawyer in 2011 and opened my own firm to practice as a mediator and arbitrator. I am a Fellow of the College of Commercial Mediators and a member of the National Academy of Distinguished Neutrals.
