"When I was in a difficult management dispute in my hotel and restaurant business, Eric gained a complete understanding of my situation and my personal and businesses goals. He put together my legal team and a winning strategy that allowed me to negotiate a buy-out from a position of strength. I would highly recommend him to any business person requiring litigation or transactional counsel. – Ross Lombardo, Restauranteur"

"Eric N. Cohen & Associates has been a reliable source of legal counsel for everything from business formations, to licensing agreements and other intellectual property matters. When we set out to enter into a product development and marketing deal and later a buy-out of our joint venture partner, the value of Eric’s legal skills and business acumen became even more apparent. Eric’s corporate transactional experience was instrumental in helping us navigate through some difficult business issues and drafting the deal documents in such a way that our interests were protected and yet the other party also left the table with respect for the process. Roger O'Sullivan, General Counsel, Cogstate Ltd."
