My practice focuses on complex commercial and intellectual property litigation. I have experience counseling clients in a variety of matters including breach of contract, patent and trademark infringement, and employment issues.

Prior to joining Chapman Spingola, I was an attorney with Kirkland & Ellis, LLP, where I worked on litigation teams conducting legal research, drafting legal briefs, engaging in written and oral fact discovery, managing expert witnesses in preparation for written and oral testimony, and preparing for and conducting trials.

I am able to utilize my experience and skills as a leader and member of litigation teams to guide litigation strategy to provide advice to corporate clients in a variety of industries.
