As a trial lawyer, strategist, negotiator, and counselor, my efforts resulted in billions collected for clients in my career at Robins Kaplan—including a $2.763 billion award that was collected for Kraft against Starbucks following a month-long trial in Chicago.
The breadth of my experience in large cases is rare. My experience ranges from huge patent disputes involving the entire petroleum industry to antitrust disputes involving alleged price-fixing and monopolistic behavior. Most recently, I obtained substantial and confidential resolution of mortgage-backed securities claims against investment banks and rating agencies following the 2008 economic collapse. We continue our quest to keep the financial markets free from manipulation as that industry rolls out new and ever more sophisticated financial instruments and practices.
Following three decades of being a trial lawyer, I am now Counsel to the firm and use my background in high stakes, high risk, and strategically complex scenarios.
I received my J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School in 1985.
