T. 510.910.7098

Renee has dedicated her career to conflict and disputes, first as a litigator and advocate, then as a consultant focused on problem-solving, facilitation and implementation. She finds her role as a neutral investigator both incredibly challenging and rewarding.


Before joining the firm, Renee was a management consultant, helping clients collaborate more effectively both internally and with alliance partners. This often required navigating different organizational cultures, operating models and behavioral skills. She has extensive experience delivering, advising and training on conflict management, negotiation and managing difficult conversations.

Renee started her legal career at Pillsbury Winthrop, focusing on diverse commercial litigation, which included white-collar criminal defense cases. She prevailed for her clients in a Prop 65 trial on methylmercury.

Renee is a graduate of the AWI Training Institute for Workplace Investigators.
