"I had the pleasure of working closely with Gayle in her capacity as International Counsel at Nexans on several projects involving the company's intellectual property protection. Most notably, a patent infringement trial in Norway, and the creation of a proactive strategy to protect the company's IP portfolio. Gayle is knowledgeable, dedicated, enthusiastic and creative in her approach to driving parties to reach agreement. I would gladly work with her again."

"Gayle is a practical, commercially oriented and effective lawyer. She supported my companies Asia Pacific legal needs while based in Paris, France. This is not easy to do, given that the legal space in Asia is so fundamentally different than in the US and Europe. Gayle works with diligence and learns complicated issues quickly. I found her to be a pleasure to work with - even in some unpleasant circumstances. I highly recommend her."
