Assisting clients in understanding and reducing risk

Timothy assists clients to understand and reduce their legal and commercial risk when entering into business transactions and relationships, including through identifying and balancing disparate risks, implementing efficient structures and drafting comprehensive and commercial legal documents.

Timothy is a creative problem solver. He adapts his advice to the commercial context while giving clients a sense of what legal and business terms they should and should not expect to receive. He aims to always draft and negotiate legal documents that achieve his client's goals, are appropriate for the transaction and are responsive to his client’s concerns.

While in law school, Timothy served as an editor of the Virginia Tax Review. As a first-year law student, he represented the University of Virginia School of Law at the National Transactional LawMeets Competition.
