“Naturally, a law degree is required in my field, but my Bachelor of Science in Finance has been invaluable. My biggest wins have always been where I am able to help a financially troubled client restructure without resorting to bankruptcy, closing the business, or resorting to litigation. However, to accomplish this you need business knowledge to identify every available option, legal knowledge to evaluate the prudence of each option, and the credibility to negotiate everyone to your viewpoint. I not only better understand their companies and needs, but I can also actively participate and advise them in solving legal and non-legal problems.”
Could you have reached your present position without your educational endeavors?
“I could have, but I would never have the same well-rounded perspective that I have now. Our firm has multidisciplinary expertise in finance, lending, securities, business transactions, bankruptcy, real estate, employment law, estate planning and litigation. We offer our clients a conversant and broad knowledge base that few other firms can offer.”
What are your thoughts on what it takes to be successful in this field?
“An immovable determination and confidence in your decision-making. Do not skip over the details when first starting out. Concentrate your energy on keeping your business moving forward, and hire someone else to do the paperwork if you have to.”
