"I have worked extensively with Jennifer on both domestic and international legal matters, including her involvement as a key business partner on two international acquisitions. Jennifer’s legal knowledge is both broad and deep, and she combines this knowledge with a commercially-oriented mindset. She is often able to find practical solutions to legal issues because she invests the time to understand the business aspects of those issues as well as the legal ones. Jennifer is an adept negotiator who does a good job of defining and communicating negotiating positions on critical topics and holding firm on those items that are most important to managing legal risk."

"have had the pleasure of working with Jennifer over the last 4 years. The majority of our work together was on domestic and international transactions. Jennifer not only provided legal expertise but also showed great partnering skills, client service excellence and business acumen. Many of the deals we worked together were extremely complex (both in level of negotiation as well as deal structure) which required out-of-box solutions and in depth knowledge of the deal and the regulatory constraints. While everyone thought that things may be too complex, Jennifer was able to maintain a positive attitude and get us and the counterparty to a solution which kept us moving forward. On a personal note, Jennifer is a pleasure to work with she is a model of humility, humor and passion."
