John is the lead attorney in the firm's land use department; the firm's commercial real estate department; and the firm's aviation law group.

The land use department primarily practices in Greenwich, CT. Its members regularly appear before all land use agencies of the town and they have recognized successful working relationships with all town departments as well as many, if not all, of the design and engineering firms in the area. John and his team are consistently on the front lines of securing the approvals for construction of the major development projects in the Town of Greenwich.

The commercial real estate department provides legal services to a diverse local, national and international clientele that collectively own billions of dollars of commercial real property throughout the United States and the world. The department is well versed and has a recognized experience in complex commercial real estate transactions; such transactions would include those involving multiple layers of ownership and/or financing; ground leasing; private/public sector development; and tax-free exchanges of investment properties.

John, through his thirty years of representing international and national clientele, established a highly successful aviation law group at the firm to address such clientele's needs for expert representation in this area. Today, the growing aviation law group actively represents national and international individuals and companies owning, operating and financing aircraft registered in the United States, Bermuda and Europe. The department represents major world-wide aircraft charter and management companies and aircraft brokerage companies in their overall business operations in the United States.
