My goal is to create a family-focused office, not a family office, and a trusted company, not a trust company.
In my current iteration, I am the President of a single family office and private trust company. As such, I use my legal, finance, and conflict resolution background to shape structures, processes, and patterns of behavior to help the family I serve flourish over the long-term.
I write about family enterprise issues, and occasionally will post such writings here. I welcome feedback.
Most of my career I have been a law professor at the University of Colorado Law School in Boulder, Colorado. There I taught contract law, negotiation, counseling family enterprises, the law of non-profits, and legal ethics. I have written books and academic work on these topics, as well as on privacy law and emerging technologies.
