"We have a complicated business involving providing real time data to companies in the energy sector. Our model requires us to receive timely data from multiple sources and then provide this data to our clients through our product. Joe worked with us on both sides to scrap our old agreements and provide new tightly synchronized agreements that provided much better protection for us and our clients. Joe demonstrated an amazing learning curve in quickly getting to understand our business at a granular level and took a very business oriented approach to negotiating and drafting our agreements. Great job!"
