Dave has been representing individuals and emerging businesses in private practice since 1993, working in two international Am Law 100 firms, as well as small to mid-size firms. He also has served as inside General Counsel to two government contractors and a commercial software company.

Dave handles transactions and litigation in a broad range of intellectual property, government contracts and grants, M&A, corporate, and income and estate matters. He frequently serves as general counsel to his clients, guiding them through all phases of the business life-cycle to develop customized launch, funding, expansion and exit plans that meet each client’s unique experience and goals.

For example, he negotiated the sale of a $100M government contractor to a publicly traded corporation, structuring the transaction in a manner that saved his clients over one million dollars in taxes. He also has litigated extensively in state and federal courts, helping clients secure settlements as high as $30M and judgments or jury awards in excess of $1.1M.
