Eric began his career as a general practitioner in his home region of Downeast Maine. Being fluent in Spanish and French (and a native English speaker), and wishing to expand his professional horizons, he obtained an Ll.M. in International Business Law from the London School of Economics in 1994, and joined Fox Horan & Camerini LLP in 1998. Here he has continued to practice as a generalist, with extensive experience litigating commercial disputes in state and federal courts and before arbitral forums in the U.S. and abroad, as well as advising the firm’s European and Latin American clients on their U.S.-related business operations.
Eric takes particular satisfaction in helping foreign brick-and-mortar businesses at all stages of their experience in the U.S. market. He provides advice and representation to such companies concerning (among other things) corporate governance, immigration, employment, licensing and regulatory compliance, public and private contracts, joint ventures, and dispute resolution. Representative clients include a publicly traded French group principally providing advanced electronics and engineering services to the defense industry, a Spanish-owned multinational group providing electronic tolling and other transportation-related services, a Costa Rican clinical trials organization serving clients throughout the Western Hemisphere, and a French family-owned agribusiness and manufacturer of nutritional products. Eric also advises individuals and families concerning their investments, charitable activities, and confidential personal matters.
