Description: My legal practice is a mix of business litigation and general business and environmental law. I represent clients in mediation, arbitration and in state/federal courts and before regulatory authorities and advise them on general business matters such as entity formation and governance, contracts, intellectual property, corporate reporting and compliance, developing vendor and supplier standards, employment and other general business matters. I work collaboratively with clients to help identify and manage their legal risk and to provide strategic business advice and support to help them achieve their personal and professional goals.
I am a LEED AP and serve on the Sustainable Building Taskforce for Sustainable Atlanta and the Sustainability Taskforce for Atlanta BeltLine and am a member of U.S. Green Building Council Georgia Chapter and Urban Land Institute - Atlanta District Council, where I serve on the Advisory Board and as Chair of the Technical Assistance Program Committee. I also provide legal and strategic business advice to social venture entrepreneurs at Hub Atlanta and serve on several non-profit boards, including Green Chamber of the South (board chair), whose mission is to promote and support sustainable business practices throughout the Southeast U.S., girltank Foundation, whose mission is to empower young women social-change entrepreneurs globally, and WACSI Environmental Education. I belong to Atlanta Bar Association (Environmental (past chair), Real Estate & Litigation sections) and State Bar of Georgia.
I am also a director for a 2nd generation family business that provides residential/commercial door products and services and a founding board member of One Team at a Time, a non-profit working with the Atlanta Burundian community to promote peace and ethnic reconciliation in Burundi through soccer.
When I am not working with clients trying to change the world, I am probably out running or cycling. Somewhere.
Specialties:I combine my personal interest in social and environmental responsibility and sustainability with my professional skills to provide legal and strategic business advice and support to individuals and businesses that want to make the world a better place.
