Legal Services

As my father was a senior partner at a small litigation law firm in New York City, I spend most of my summers during high school and college working for him, first as a legal assistant and then as a paralegal.

Kaye Scholer was hired by KPT to defend them in a class-action suit related to defective drywall in more than a half-million homes through the U.S. that KPT installed but was manufactured by a Chinese company. Given this was a "make or break" situation for the construction company, we encouraged them to hire an outside crisis communications agency, while I was responsible for handling media relations for the lawsuit itself and our firm's role in negotiating a settlement to the mutual benefit of all parties.
