"Our law office retained Douglas to serve as our co-counsel in a transaction involving a NYC financial database company and a Hong Kong-based private equity firm. This transaction had very tight deadlines, and presented several thorny legal and business issues. We retained Douglas’ services because of his exceptional reputation as someone who understands both intellectual property law and international business. Douglas’ performance exceeded our expectations. Douglas’ brilliant intellect, combined with his practical understanding of law and business, led to a successful completion of the transaction."
"Douglas Park has one of the most, if not the most, impressive backgrounds as a leading authority in technology start-ups in all facets of legal matter. He helped us with making changes to our corporate charter and bylaws and refining our product. It was truly an honor and pleasure for our company to be receiving the highest level of strategic and legal counsel from Doug."
