During that time, he helped plan and lead office and practice expansion initiatives in Australia, Belgium, China, Germany, Hungary, India, Italy, Japan, Kuwait, Singapore and Southeast Asia, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom, including the expansion of the firm into China, its merger with a Japanese law firm in Tokyo, and office openings in Germany, Italy, and Singapore.
