Our People

Our team of lawyers includes former U.S. federal and state prosecutors, English and offshore judges, and arbitrators. 

Our team of legal analysts work closely with the lawyers and, under their supervision, provide research and analysis for every stage of a matter. In addition, the lawyers are supported by an executive team of technology, e-discovery, case management, and public relations professionals to provide clients with practical business solutions that complement the legal strategy.
