APPROACH

“In a sense, I start at the end: the client’s goal.  Starting from this point, we can develop a strategy for getting there, whether the goal is to fend off a competitor, open an area to competition, or protect an investment in technology.  By focusing on the client, I can foster a lasting relationship that meets the client’s long-term objectives.”
