"Brian provided much needed written advice regarding some unclear aspects of our EPC contract that allowed us to favorably resolve them with our client."
"Brian worked against a tough deadline to review over 100 EPC agreements to help us draft a contract profile against which we could negotiate future contracts for the middle east. He worked late into the early hours and got us what we needed on time."
