"I worked with Hadas on several complex partnership deals. Hadas was a great partner in all of the phases from conception to closing and provided a lot of great insight and guidance. She took the time to understand the business goals as well as the business process so that the advice she provided was targeted and relevant. It was very refreshing to discuss with her what we wanted in business terms and have her produce the appropriate legal documents and wording that allowed us to move forward. She was great with the legal teams from the Partners’ side as well. I have no reservations recommending Hadas for legal work in any arena and look forward to working with her again in the future."

"I had the pleasure teaming with Hadas to form legal and business templates for my company’s Service Levels, Content Distribution and Technology Alliances agreements, as well as to negotiate multiple strategic agreements utilizing such templates. Hadas’ expertise in the high technology sector and strong business orientation resulted in the creation of an efficient contractual infrastructure that streamlined the negotiations of strategic agreements. Hadas was an indispensable part of the business team. Her extensive legal knowledge, quick grasp of business issues, ability to articulate legal and business objectives and her pragmatic approach, ensured we were well prepared for any negotiation, carefully weighted our priorities and came away with win-win agreements. I personally learned a great deal from Hadas about key legal principles and their application on the business I managed. Hadas' support significantly helped in accomplishing my business goals."
