"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."
