Business Law Articles

Business Law Publications

I lead and innovate, but always the student …

In order to better serve my business law clients, I like to stay at the leading edge of a variety of business law issues. To do that, I periodically publish business law articles that may be of particular interest to my mid-sized business clients, where I discuss trends in the law, outline strategy, or simply explain a complex subject.
