00:04
the philosophy
00:05
that that guides my work uh as as a
00:08
lawyer as an attorney
00:10
is is add value i think so many of us
00:13
have been
00:13
raised on you know television series and
00:16
movies to think that a
00:17
a lawyer’s job is is to go in and argue
00:20
and
00:21
you obviously want to be a very
00:23
effective advocate
00:24
for your client but so much of my
00:27
background is in the
00:29
corporate and transactional space
00:31
essentially trying to get a deal done
00:33
and i’ve seen many a very capable lawyer
00:37
mess up what is otherwise a perfectly
00:39
good deal or a perfectly good
00:40
transaction
00:41
because they think that by virtue of the
00:44
fact that they’re someone’s lawyer that
00:46
they need to go
00:46
in and turn over a table and and have an
00:49
argument in order to
00:50
properly advocate for their client i try
00:53
to step back and
00:54
and ask myself you know what is my
00:56
client trying to accomplish and how can
00:58
i add value
00:59
in these circumstances and oftentimes
01:02
that’s as straightforward as
01:03
common sense and moving a project
01:05
forward so i try to add value
01:13
one of the things i discovered uh in law
01:15
school and and then in the practice of
01:17
law is that
01:18
um i i like writing and i like writing
01:20
about the law
01:22
much of my background has been in the
01:24
energy sector specifically on the oil
01:26
and gas side
01:27
and so as a result a lot of my
01:30
writings especially in law review
01:33
articles
01:33
or in industry publications have focused
01:36
on
01:38
the practice of oil and gas law usually
01:40
these articles are
01:41
formed around my experiences
01:44
working deals working transactions in
01:47
the oil patch
01:49
especially when there’s been a dispute
01:51
that has arisen
01:52
out of those transactions these have
01:54
gotten i’m happy to say pretty
01:57
popular responses they’ve been
02:00
cited by various courts of appeals and
02:02
i’ve been very pleased
02:04
to have been invited to speak at various
02:07
law schools
02:08
as well as some continuing legal legal
02:10
education seminars as well
