DESCRIPTION OF PRACTICE
My practice focuses on general civil litigation. I have represented Fortune 500 companies, private companies of all sizes,
large insurance companies, and major Massachusetts law firms in a wide variety of litigation matters. Over the years I
have gained a broad base of experience representing various professionals, businesses, and individuals.
I have been involved in numerous types of business litigation, including but not limited to, shareholder disputes, business
torts, contract disputes, and employment matters. I have litigated intellectual property matters including the enforcement
of trademarks, protection of trade secrets, and patent infringement claims. I am a registered patent attorney.
In the area of professional liability, I have defended law firms and individual lawyers, including significant experience
defending specialized practitioners such as patent lawyers. I have also defended real estate brokers, insurance brokers,
architects, engineers and psychologists.
I also incorporate my experience as a licensed private pilot in the representation of aircraft owners and pilots in Federal
Aviation Administration Enforcement actions. I am an active member of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association panel
counsel. I have represented aircraft owners, fixed base operators, repair facilities, pilots, flight instructors and aviation
insurers in numerous civil cases. I currently act as New England regional counsel to British Airways and Alitalia Airlines
for the defense of civil actions filed against the airlines in the New England region.
In addition to the above, I also enjoy a challenging insurance defense practice in the defense of insurers and their insureds
in a myriad of general liability, environmental, and toxic tort cases including extensive experience in the defense of
personal injury and property damage cases. I have had the pleasure of representing retailers, distributors, and product
manufacturers in a number of cases alleging breach of warranty and negligent design and manufacture.
I have tried high exposure cases to verdict in state and federal court in Massachusetts and Rhode Island and in federal
court in the state New York. I have also litigated in state courts in Ohio, New Hampshire, and Maine. Representative
