"Gabriel has unmatched pedigree with his education and experience and his client service is outstanding. He is clearly is an expert in the health and wellness field and understands how to counsel businesses that operate in a highly-regulated field. He assisted me with a complicated asset purchase transaction that involved a turnover of shareholders and a total reform of the board of directors. His LL.M. tax background was especially helpful in understanding the post-acquisition tax ramifications to the business and its equity owners. Gabriel always returned my calls in the same day and delivered "concierge"-like legal services by understanding exactly what we needed, when, and how to achieve it. I recommend hiring Gabriel for any of your company's general counsel needs."
