"We used Ed to help draft employment and severance agreements for our top 5 executives. He helped lay out current market practices in our industry, filled us in on corporate best practices in regards to both employment agreements and severance agreements, and helped lay out the process to get these agreement communicated to our executives and their counsel. He helped develop the term sheet format we used during the initial negotiations which, in turn, was used to develop the agreements. All of our executives signed off on their agreements and we ended up with better agreements than we had before. Working with Ed was a pleasure as he was quite responsive to communications and turned new drafts quite quickly, and did so in a very competent manner."
