Professional Chops

In my twenty-plus years of practice, whether I was an in-house lawyer or an outside law firm attorney, I have always thought of myself as a member of the business team providing sound legal advice versus a lawyer solely giving legal advice. A business lawyer must provide strategic advice to manage legal risk but at the same time recognize the complex business issues at play.

While I enjoy working with start ups in all types of business, my practice includes health care products and services, international commercialization of products and services and building corporate compliance programs with particular focus on the Anti-Kickback Statute and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA).

I have represented both buyers and sellers in transactions ranging in size from $5 million to over $1 billion.

I also have extensive international experience practicing in-house in Paris, France, negotiating and closing international acquisitions, licensing and development transactions and with unfortunate direct experience with the laws and regulations regarding Speedo requirements of French swimming pools.


“Ted and his team at PSL have been a fantastic resource for us since we started working with them 5 years ago. They bring a wealth of knowledge about not only all things legal but with several aspects of growing our business, which has been essential for our success.

More about Ted

I love traveling with my family, especially internationally where we are exposed and learn about other cultures.

I jog, ski, golf, read and love live music of all types, but my passion is understanding how a business idea was created and how that business grows and succeeds.
