"We’ve been working with Marc and his team for close to two years now. From our initial shareholder agreement to smoothly closing a seed round of financing with California-based VC, they have been immensely helpful. We particularly appreciated Marc personal and informal approach as well as his all-digital and technology friendly mindset. Marc is a pleasure to work with and I'm looking forward to continuing a great relationship. Dorian Kieken Age of Minds founder & CEO"

"We were very lucky to have had the fortune of crossing paths with Marc and his team at MAP Legal. From the first phone call at the beginning of what turned out to be a 6 month negotiation, I felt very comfortable with Marc and his ability to best represent my interests in the transaction. I can say with certainty, his negotiation skills, and ability to find creative solutions to many of the roadblocks we encountered, allowed this deal to actually close. There was never a time he was unavailable to me, and even during the most contentious parts of the negotiation, he was always the most level headed person in the room. Marc’s techniques, attention to detail, and collaborative demeanour, not only brought me the best value I could have received for my company, but also high accolades from the purchasers legal team. I would without hesitation, recommend Marc, and his entire team at MAP Legal to anyone looking to engage in a purchase and sale transaction, and I will absolutely be using them for my future transactions. Andy MacDonald, Founder and President, Bluewater Rigging Ltd."
