"Great working with Chris. He went above and beyond explaining the contract related to the purchase of a business. Chris through in bonus info related to taxes that I should consider and included alternative language that should be used in the contract. All his edits were excepted by the other side which showed me he was tough yet fair and didn't kill the deal. Awesome! Will use Chris again. "

"Top notch legal work. Chris is incredibly thorough in analyzing a situation to help map out the risks and develop a plan, anticipating potential problems, AND explaining it all in a way that makes sense. He’s handled many things for us from starting our business to negotiating and writing all our contracts to dealing with our employees. Chris covers all the angles and gets to the bottom of a situation quickly. He’s helped us build our business. Working with him gives a real sense of partnership, and I can always feel how invested he is our business succeeding."

"I was very concerned with all of the things that could wrong after the purchase closed, and was worried about having something snuck past me in the contracts the seller gave me. Chris helped me find all of the risks and things slanted in the sellers's favor in the contract and make the right changes. He took the time to understand my concerns, and ask a lot of questions to get me to think about things I hadn't thought of. And he didn't just make changes; Chris explained to me why each one needed to be made. I feel like he kept me safe."
