There's one word that summarises why I chose Clyde & Co: culture. In my opinion, the collegiality at Clyde & Co is unrivalled by any other law firm of comparable size. Integrity, professionalism and respect for clients and coworkers is not mere lip service at Clyde & Co and is imbued at every level of the organization.
The collective commitment to a consistent world class effort and the trust our immediate team has in each other is truly what I enjoy most about working at Clyde & Co.

I have had the pleasure of being involved in the legal profession since my time at the University of Colorado - Boulder, and have been working in both government and private practice in Colorado, California, Malaysia, Japan, Thailand and Singapore.  I graduated from law school from the University of San Diego and practiced in California for 7 years before relocating to Asia permanently in 2009.  After making partner at my previous firm, the opportunity to join Clyde & Co's team was one that I could not pass up, and I lateralled to Clyde & Co together with Senior Associate Jonathan Lynch in March of 2016.

Coming to work every day knowing that your team is all rowing in the same direction gives purpose and meaning to one's professional life;  the collective commitment to a consistent world class effort and the trust our immediate team has in each other is truly what I enjoy most about working at Clyde & Co.  Additionally, we are fortunate in our practice to be able to count industry leaders and market setting organizations as our clients; working with such talented and committed people is a blessing.

Recently we have been involved in several aspects of the merger that created the world's largest hotel operating company.  Watching this global deal unfold and contributing in part to its success has been a terrific experience.
