For more than 20 years, Jay has partnered with his clients to provide quality legal advice that is responsive, strategic and efficient. He focuses his practice on litigation, representing a number of Fortune 1000 companies in product liability, complex commercial, environmental and intellectual property matters.
Jay never forgets that his client’s legal decisions are, first and foremost, business decisions. He works diligently to understand how each company is unique – its people, its history, its products, its processes and its markets. In some instances this means visiting clients on his own time, serving on internal client Six Sigma teams or walking the manufacturing line (or field, or laboratory) to ensure he understands and represents each client in a way that is consistent with its business strategy and core values.
Jay delivers bottom-line value to his clients by using many strategies responsive to his various clients’ needs. He regularly utilizes lean staffing on his matters, with a hand-picked team of associates, paralegals and, when necessary, partners with specialized knowledge to get the job done. He incorporates creative cutting-edge uses of technology and knowledge-sharing to more effectively and efficiently represent his clients. Furthermore, Jay is experienced in structuring alternative fees for litigation and transactional matters.
He has handled a wide-range of multimillion-dollar and “bet the company” matters for clients over the years. Although trained to resolve disputes before a jury, Jay knows that often a decisive, favorable dismissal of an opponent’s claims often serves the client better than a drawn out jury trial.
