As our resident “Science Guy”, Adam brings a unique perspective to his work, as he instinctually applies analytical rigor and curiosity to clients’ legal problems. Much like cold fusion, we almost don’t know how he does it. Adam takes his research seriously; he knows it is the backbone of every valuable legal opinion. It also enables him to prioritize clients’ business needs while helping them to navigate legal complexities. Adam is driven to be a trusted advisor to his clients and colleagues. He invests the time it takes to understand his clients’ business and what’s important to them. He knows that this data drives the best results; what matters to his clients informs Adam’s legal strategy. Clients regularly turn to Adam for advice on M&A and corporate reorganizations and on entity governance and compliance. After sharpening his pencil, Adam takes a pragmatic, strategic, and solutions-oriented approach to his clients’ concerns. The quintessential polymath, Adam’s broad and diverse knowledge base helps him to find common ground with those on the other side of a deal. We are always surprised – and sometimes puzzled – by his varied interests. From cooking and baking to space exploration and politics, Adam’s insatiable curiosity makes for great conversation, and for deep engagement on client issues. Plus, if you’re like us and need a ringer for your trivia night…we know a guy.
