"Stephen was our anchor throughout our purchase of a commercial property where a manufacturing business operated. There were substantive environmental risks of purchasing this property, which Stephen was sure to bring to our attention and mitigate by carefully drafting the agreement of purchase and sale. He also reviewed the commercial lease with the existing tenant we were assuming and ensured we understood all the terms. He was outstanding in performing these tasks and we will certainly rely on him and his services again in the future."
"Stephen provided exceptional service during the course of our purchase transaction. He thoroughly explained the share purchase agreement to us, carefully advised us of all the potential risks and liabilities, and was supportive and knowledgeable in addressing our many questions and concerns. We would highly recommend Stephen's legal services to any professional or entrepreneur."
