He returned to Philadelphia and joined Dilworth Paxson's litigation group in 2008, becoming a partner in 2010. He represented plaintiffs and defendants in complex litigation matters, including antitrust, RICO, intellectual property, procurement, and civil rights disputes. He also served as a co-chair of the firm's Plaintiffs' Rights Practice Group and a member of the firm's Executive Committee.[1]
