“Relationships matter. I view my role as a partner with clients to successfully develop strategies for avoiding circumstances likely to result in lawsuits and to aggressively and cost-effectively defend lawsuits when they arise. Whether in the boardroom or the railyard, my focus is on developing an intimate understanding of a client’s business and people in order to be in a position to immediately and effectively assemble the resources necessary to address any issue that may arise in any matter.”
Sean’s litigation experience includes a record of success in jury verdicts and pre-trial motion practice. He regularly serves on initial response teams for the investigation of grade crossing accidents, occupational injuries and catastrophic incidents involving the National Transportation Safety Board and other federal agencies. Sean has also served as national discovery coordination counsel for a Class I railroad and is often asked to assist counsel in other jurisdictions where the client is concerned about its exposure.
