Global commerce provides tremendous opportunities for businesses and investors. However, crossing borders and entering new cultures also open up a whole new world of complex legal issues. With a combination of legal knowledge and hands-on experience, I provide strategic counseling on international expansion, acquisition, and investment.

My business experience is diverse and expansive, from working for a public interest group in Washington, D.C. to advising an international petroleum company on exploration contracts in Africa to assisting an international fund manager in establishing an Islamic property fund. I also speak multiple foreign languages, including Urdu (fluent), Punjabi (fluent), and Arabic (intermediate).
