For nearly 30 years, Eric has been counseling individuals and companies on virtually all aspects of their business operations, and on personal matters ranging from simple wills to complex guardianship proceedings. He has an exceptionally broad range of experience, including advising on and litigating (among many other things) public contracting matters, employment law, immigration, environmental law, licensing and infringement of intellectual property, corporate law, and litigation, arbitration, mediation and appeals in business disputes large and small.
After starting out in 1990 as a small-town lawyer in Maine, Eric moved to New York in 1998 to join an international boutique law firm in Manhattan, where his fluency in Spanish, French, and English was put to good use. From 2010 to 2018 he ran his own practice, where he continued to represent his European and Latin American clients as well as companies and individuals conducting business in New York. Eric joined Cermele & Wood as counsel in April 2018.
Eric received his B.A. (cum laude) in Spanish literature from the University of California at Santa Cruz in 1984, graduated in 1989 from the University of Maine School of Law, where he was Executive Editor of the Law Review, and he received an advanced law degree (Master of Laws) in International Business Transactions from the London School of Economics in 1993.
