"I can't overstate what a pleasure it was to work with Laura! In addition to being very knowledgeable, Laura really has a thoughtful, business-minded approach -- she took the time to really understand our situation and which points were acceptable concessions and which were non-starters. We had a painful experience dealing with some antics from the other side, but Laura handled it masterfully. She was exceptionally responsive and turned our documents very quickly. I would love to work with Laura again and can't recommend her enough. "
