I have a broad based corporate practice representing public and privately held companies of all sizes, domestic and overseas, in a variety of industries, including new media, entertainment, manufacturing, textile, healthcare and venture capital. My experience in the corporate world has included counseling on corporate governance, internal structuring and partnership agreements, finance, employment matters, licensing and mergers and acquisitions. My published articles cover such matters as film financing and bankruptcy as it relates to licensing agreements, and my representation of venture capital funds and issuers has provided me with expertise with respect to finance (debt and equity) and the private placement of securities. Prior to returning to private practice in 2012 I served as Senior Counsel to Mitsui & Co. (U.S.A.), Inc., the US subsidiary of one of Japan’s largest multi-national corporations. While with Mitsui I oversaw all legal work related to various of Mitsui’s divisions, including those with interests in the film industry as well as the bio-technology, health care and consumer products business sectors. In addition, I represented Mitsui and other clients in international joint ventures/cross border transactions involving new media, overseas manufacture and the import and export of various high-tech and other products. Before joining Mitsui I worked as an associate in a Boston (Peabody & Brown) and New York (Golenbock & Barell) law firm, focusing on private placements and securities work for private and publicly held entities. I received my undergraduate degree from Brandeis University and my Juris Doctor from Boston University School of Law, and I am a member of the New York and Massachusetts State bars.
