His practice focuses on representing businesses and individuals in commercial transactions ranging from residential and commercial real estate deals to company formation and governance arrangements to employment contracts and other operational agreements. His real estate practice includes experience in advising clients in land use planning, entitlements issues, and other matters related to the transfer and development of real property. Eddie began his career as a trial lawyer and worked in the Firm’s commercial litigation section for many years before transitioning his focus to transactional matters.

Having guided clients through the difficult challenges that arise when an agreement is breached or a venture fails, Eddie frequently draws on his litigation experience when advising clients about the best approach to any given transaction, including the legal risks and practical outcomes that may result from the various approaches to the contractual arrangements involved and any available protections against such risks.
