  • Profile

  • INSIGHTS

A litigation partner and co-chair of the firm’s Real Estate Litigation group, Al practically grew up in court. With a father who was Clerk of the Court, he spent his summers observing trials and studying courtroom strategy. Today he’s known for successfully resolving complex real estate, commercial, and financial disputes. Highly skilled in all facets of litigation, including trials and appeals, Al is most proud when he can craft a solution before litigation starts.

Financial, Real Estate, Commercial Disputes

Al is experienced representing parties on all sides and in all stages of financial, real estate and commercial disputes. He advises clients regarding problematic real estate and commercial transactions, investments, secured transactions, loan defaults, corporate and partnership governance and dissolutions, and insolvencies. His clients range from Fortune 50 companies to individuals, including developers, property owners, businesses, financial institutions, venture funders, investors, and fiduciaries.

Creative Solutions

With broad experience in the real estate and finance markets, Al is skilled in the full cycle of a dispute, from the time of breach or default, through settlement, restructuring, and workout negotiations, to litigation and even bankruptcy. While many litigators have a sue-first mentality, Al works closely with clients to develop creative and aggressive strategies to quickly achieve their business objectives while minimizing the costs and risks of litigation.

Dispute Prevention

Al counsels clients regarding deal terms and protections that help limit the risks and costs of future disputes. Al routinely advises clients and transactional counsel on deal structure and protections, as well as on the implementation of operational practices and procedures to prevent disputes or, at least, maximize a client’s rights and remedies if litigation becomes necessary. This advice includes review and revision of deal documents, term sheets, standard contract forms, promissory notes, guarantees, operating agreements, invoices and vendor agreements.

Probably the only lawyer with a meat grinder in his office, Al comes from a long line of sausage makers. He enjoys making his dad’s recipes and creating his own, as well as teaching others to make sausage. Al is also a regular at the local CrossFit box. Above all else, he enjoys hanging out with his family.
