"Jeremy was able to help me navigate what would have otherwise been an expensive and drawn out formation process for a business structure that included multiple investor levels, rights and complicated distributions. We were able to form the company and the underlying agreements within a week for an extremely fair fee. I honestly thought it would take a month or more. He was a fantastic counsel in the matter and I would definitely recommend!"

"When I came to Jeremy we were presented with an extremely confusing and borderline absurd lease for our office. He helped us negotiate the lease to a point where we actually felt comfortable moving forward. He was extremely helpful, communicative and quick."
