"David helped us see and understand the risks in the deal. Whether it was the big picture risk (the FDA doesn't care that the cause of the problem happened before we acquired the company) or the difference between gross negligence and regular negligence, David explained the concepts without legal mumbo jumbo and helped us make the right decision. David was always available for calls and he brought a 'calm, cool and collected' attitude to our internal negotiations and due diligence."

"David brought a very practical, results-oriented approach to our negotiations. While the other side made some crazy demands, David remained calm, accurately assessed the pressures that each player was reacting to, and predicted exactly how the negotiations would play out. David's experience was able to drive home a long term agreement that was very fair to both sides."
