Following 23 years as a litigator of business disputes, I have served as in house counsel to two financial services organizations. In 2005, I became general counsel and chief administrative officer to OpHedge Fund Services, a start up hedge fund administrator which, after five years of substantial growth, was acquired by the industry leader.
After a brief return to private practice, I accepted the general counsel role at Clayton Holdings LLC, a provider of real estate and mortgage due diligence and asset management services to investment banks and other institutional investors. Since Clayton’s 2014 acquisition by Radian Group Inc. (NYSE: RDN), I continue to serve as the chief legal officer for its real estate, title, valuation and asset management services businesses.
I also am a longstanding arbitrator and mediator for the American Arbitration Association (including its specialty panels for Large Complex Cases; Mergers and Acquisitions and Joint Ventures; and Master Mediators), serving primarily in New York and Connecticut. You can find a copy of my arbitration and mediation profile here.
And, in addition to Positively Neutral, I author the Golf Dispute Resolution website/blog that tracks the intersection of golf and law.
