I am a member of Schlam Stone & Dolan LLP, a 24-lawyer New York law firm whose practice comprises all aspects of civil litigation, government and internal corporate investigations, and transactional and legal counseling. My practice focuses on the litigation of large, complex commercial disputes, often with a transnational component. I have represented clients in all aspects of complex commercial litigation, including business disputes involving contract, fraud and intellectual property claims; disputes over the control, ownership and breakup of businesses; disputes involving federal antitrust, racketeering and securities law claims; and representing creditors in bankruptcy proceedings. Much of my work has been for clients in the technology, financial services and biotech/pharmaceutical sectors. I most often litigate in the Commercial Divisions of the New York State courts and the US District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, although I have represented clients in state and federal courts throughout the United States, as well as in AAA and FINRA arbitrations. I am a mediator for the Commercial Division’s Alternative Dispute Resolution Program. I blog on current developments in the Commercial Divisions at www.commercialdivisionblog.com. I received my J.D. from Columbia University Law School in 1997, where I was a Kent Scholar. From 1974 to 1994, I served in the United States Army as an enlisted person, noncommissioned officer and commissioned officer, retiring with the rank of Major. From 1997 to 1998, I clerked for the Honorable John T. Noonan, Jr., of the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. From 1998 to 2002, I was associated with Cravath, Swaine & Moore.
