Although Doug is a litigator and trial attorney by training, he views himself first and foremost as a problem-solver. For example, where parties are in conflict, there may be solutions that are quicker and less costly, both in terms of legal fees and the clients’ use of resources, than litigation. Usually, such alternatives should be explored both before a lawsuit is filed and periodically over the course of litigation to ensure that opportunities for resolution are recognized if they exist, and if appropriate, those opportunities are taken. In some cases, however, aggressive representation is required to protect a client’s rights and interests, and compromise is not an option. That also must be the client’s decision after being fully advised about the law as it applies to the relevant facts. In addition to litigation, Doug advises clients on a variety of transactional matters and has served in a general counsel role for several of his clients.
