Greg’s practice focuses on complex commercial litigation, constitutional litigation, and government investigations and regulatory compliance matters.

Greg has nine years of experience with M&A and business disputes, commercial real estate, fraud, and defamation litigation. Greg has handled a broad range of state and federal constitutional issues such as education funding, due process, Section 1983, Title IX, and federal abstention jurisprudence.
