"I recently retained Elliot to assist me in drafting a term sheet to initiate employment discussions and negotiations. He was prompt and remained available for as many conference calls as needed to go over drafts, make revisions and provide advisement regarding industry standards. In the end he demonstrated an above average knowledge base, was adept at distilling the information provided regarding the contemplated entities, and crafted a term sheet that addressed my specific concerns while remaining commensurate with industry standards. I highly recommend Elliot for your employment representation needs!"

"I had the pleasure of working with Elliot during a very tumultuous merger with compressed time frames. Elliot was able to expertly handle multiple and complex executive calculations (280G) under deadlines to ensure we were compliant under the applicable regulatory requirements. In addition, Elliot was able to lead meetings / conference calls with our CEO, executive team members and/or their financial advisors to breakdown the complexity of the analyses so that they had an understanding of the important work being performed. Elliot's mastery of the work was evident in his ability to effectively consult and collaborate with his stakeholders. In my 30 years in corporate business, Elliot differentiated himself through his professionalism, subject matter expertise and business ethics. He is simply outstanding!"
