"Umar was extremely helpful and tailored his service and time to my urgent needs. I appreciate his quick response and insight/knowledge on a recent equity offer from a new employer. His advice allowed me to better understand the terms of the offer and decide what and how best to negotiate. Umar's help allowed me to get better protection on my future employment contract and a little extra equity!"

"I feel really fortunate to have found Umar. He is responsive, very measured and reasonable in his assessments (including when NOT to pursue something) and does careful analytical work. The level of detail seems to be just at the right level. He identifies potholes before I see them, and I trust that I am in good hands when I send him work. I frequently refer Umar to people."
