In 1983 he was a founding partner of Howard, Darby & Levin and its successor firm, Howard, Smith & Levin LLP, which in 1999 merged with Covington & Burling LLP. Beginning in the late 1990’s, he began to acquire training and experience in mediation and other alternatives to litigation, as clients increasingly sought conflict solutions with reduced cost and risk. For several months in 2001, while a Covington partner, he served as acting head of litigation (North America) for UBS Warburg. He took Retired Partner status from Covington in 2011 to work full-time as an independent, domestic and international mediator, arbitrator and creator of conflict solutions.
