"Eric has helped us with a contract for a consultant and related paperwork for a specific situation we had. He had been very thorough in understanding the situation and helped us with detailed paperwork. Would definitely like to take his help again."
"Eric is a very dedicated and skilled attorney. He got the job done well and promptly within the defined budget. I'll definitely be coming back for his services."
"I worked with Eric while he was Legal Counsel at Protiviti. I have worked with a number of corporate and public legal practitioners in the past. Eric is easily one of the best I have worked with. What really distinguishes Eric is that he possesses a tremendous capacity to balance the legal and commercial. His strategies were always very sound, "on point" and well laid out. During legal negotiations he comes across as fair and seeks to find solutions to problems. His approach is one of common sense rather than "legalese". With Eric's help, we always managed to move forward while effectively managing our legal risks. I enjoyed working with Eric and learned a great deal from him."
"Eric is a very thoughtful lawyer and business thinker. In particular, he was very helpful in helping us think critically about a very important decision for our company and was extremely responsive and easy to work with. -Karen VP Marketplace, Wanelo"
