"Greg helped us negotiate a highly non-trivial partnership agreement with a major company, involving a number of sensitive IP issues. With Greg's help, we were able to zero in on the core issues and to resolve them in a way that was acceptable for both parties. We are now successfully working with the company, and are very grateful to Greg for helping us."
