Business Law, Contracts & Opportunity Zones
In-House Focus & Attention
Let me get to know your business like an in-house counsel and serve as your go-to resource for your legal questions, contract and intellectual property advice. Concerned about a potential business dispute, negotiation or contract? Let me be your counselor and confidant. Utilize my experience to develop and implement proactive strategies for success, mitigate risk and achieve your goals.
Interested in the benefits of a designated Qualified Opportunity Zone? In 2018 Randolph, Vermont and other select locations throughout the state were designated as "Opportunity Zones" under the Federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Under the Act qualified investors may be able to obtain significant tax benefits when capital gains are properly invested in an opportunity zone business. I have been following the Act and proposed federal regulations and I am happy to serve as a legal resource for businesses or investors interested in taking advantage of the benefits an opportunity zone investment may offer.
Mediation | ADR | Neutral Opinions
Experience & Sophistication
With over a decade of experience litigating and negotiating complex commercial disputes for businesses large and small, I have a deep understanding of the forces that drive legal disputes forward and the factors that can lead to mutually agreeable solutions. My approach to negotiations and dispute resolution is informed by course work at the University of Pennsylvania School of Law School with the Wharton School's renowned professor of negotiations, Stuart Diamond, billed as one of the "world's leading experts on negotiations."
Not all disputes can be resolved outside of court but let me use tools developed through years of practice to foster a productive mediation experience, maximizing the opportunity to avoid the costs and uncertainties of additional litigation or trial. My central Vermont location in downtown Randolph offers a convenient neutral location easily accessible off I-89.
Are you a practitioner in need of a neutral opinion or consultation? Contact me and let my experience serve as a resource for you and your practice.
