As a founding member of the firm, Aitan brings to the table valuable years of experience gained at the coal face of the constantly changing practice areas of property, commercial and family law.

Aitan’s approach to problem-solving focuses on the early identification and attainment of the client’s objectives within defined and acceptable commercial and time-sensitive parameters.

Aitan’s preference for resolving conflicting commercial and personal interests on a win/win basis has proved to be a bonus for clients who have learned from bitter experience that by pursuing a win at all costs philosophy, one is left with the lasting memory of the cost but not the win.
