"Sean assisted our firm in the negotiation of a couple of leases as the business grew and needed additional office space. Eventually, we decided to purchase an office building and Sean assisted our firm with the negotiation and drafting of the purchase agreement, legal entity structure, and closing. We enjoyed working with Sean so much that we also used his services as we started a new event planning venture. He was a pleasure to work with and did a great job looking out for our interests."
