He understands that a company’s most important strategic objectives are often achieved, or preserved, through litigation. Less often, a company’s survival depends on the effectiveness of its litigation counsel. David focuses on being an advisor and business partner to clients with complex business challenges in high-stakes and bet-the-company matters.
In litigation, creative strategies, an effective client relationship, and a deep understanding of the client’s business and key objectives are essential to delivering successful outcomes and defeating potentially fatal threats. David’s experience in high-stakes matters and unique adeptness at crafting vital strategic advantages makes him a valued business partner when it really counts. He is a “lawyer’s lawyer” that other attorneys often turn to when the stakes are high.
