The modern legal environment for employers is complex and multi-faceted. Because there is no such thing as a “pure legal problem,” business leaders need strategies that are sound in business judgment as well as legal principle. When faced with litigation, a business must adopt a posture that is good for the case and the company. Nobody understands this better than Ben. By combining his extensive business management and litigation experience, Ben offers a uniquely businesslike perspective. The result is a more effective approach to solving even the most complex legal problems with an eye on ensuring the fees do not get ahead of the value. Ben is as comfortable in a board room as he is in a courtroom. He writes and speaks about development in employment law in a way that clients find useful and practical. He voraciously reads new decisions and journals, and is constantly looking for ways to translate legal developments into real competitive advantages for his existing and potential clients. When not at work, Ben can often be found on the water racing sailboats. You might find him cruising the lakes of Maine in his vintage 1959 Lyman runabout which he lovingly restored himself.
