"We hired Gordon to draft an agreement for a large new media development transaction our company was entering into. He provided expert advice from both a legal and business strategy perspective. His in-depth legal knowledge, attention to detail and ability to create a water-tight agreement was invaluable. We intend to hire Gordon again for future work (Roman Reyhani, Entrepreneur)"

"As a former Associate Dean at USC, I've worked with many attorneys, and intellectual property issues were always the ones that were most ambiguous, challenging, and prone to damaging relationships. Gordon is, simply put, the best IP attorney I've met. He helped CultureSync negotiate some tricky issues, and some complex situations. Although he's an outstanding attorney, my highest praise is that he's emerged as a trusted advisor on our business (Dave Logan, CEO, Culturesync)"
