"Amy was excellent. From negotiating complex points around privacy, security and payment terms, to drafting entirely new gold standard internal documents related to commercial engagements, Amy was very skilled. Her background as Chief Counsel for a high-growth company that had to deal with HIPAA and other healthcare complexities was clearly of value in engaging our project. We will without a doubt turn to Amy again for other projects, whether client-facing or internal, because she's reliably great at both."

"Amy skillfully reviewed and negotiated a complex master services agreement for us. She was very practical and gave sound advice on what terms should be accepted and what terms should be rejected. She turned around her reviews very quickly, proving very responsive to both us and counsel for our client. She was a pleasure to work with and we plan to use her for our corporate counsel and contracting needs."
