"I worked closely with Wisam Naoum, who was our counsel, on a $137 million acquisition financing and restructuring we provided to a client in the environmental consulting industry. He worked efficiently and productively on drafting and negotiating the credit agreement and other deal related documents. He was able to work well with opposing counsel and helped foster a productive relationship with other lenders in the deal. After we successfully closed the deal, Wisam continued following up to make sure all loose ends were tied up. In addition, throughout the process, Wisam was incredibly responsive to our needs and concerns. He went out of his way to make sure we were taken care of and is the kind of lawyer you want working on these deals. - Tom Hensel, Vice President of NXT Capital"

"I work extensively with Wisam on my start-up business in the mobile dating app sector. He’s handled our charter and corporate authority documents, our employment agreements and NDAs, our contract negotiations with third parties, our trademark applications, and our privacy policy and terms and conditions among others. He’s done each of those things really well and has been so integral to our business that we’ve brought him onto the team. We can’t stress enough how important he has been to our success thus far and recommend his work related to start-up and corporate matters. - Elmer Abbo"
