"I had the opportunity to work with Marc on a number of challenging business projects, including but not limited to re-negotiating complex commercial agreements, developing defensive legal positions in unfavorable foreign regulatory environments, and crafting legal strategies for negotiating multi-million dollar capital projects in Latin America. Marc is both thorough and anticipatory in his approach. He is an accomplished legal professional with a proven track record of successful projects in many different cultural and foreign contexts. He maintains the highest standards of integrity in his business relationships. I highly recommend Marc to head up the legal department of any business."
