"As a maturing business, we had more corporate infrastructure set-up than would have ever been possible without your help. Your expertise has ensured that we have everything required to scale from a $10M to a $100M business. Your work in helping us establish our founder stock agreements, our entire employee stock option and purchase program, NDAs, consulting agreements, and subcontract templates has put our best foot forward. We look like a polished, experienced corporation thanks to you. Your profound knowledge of contracts is amazing! And it’s all done professionally, accurately, and with speed and affordability."
"Thank you so much for your professional help and work on bringing to completion the acquisition of Arium by ASSET Intertech. I want to make a strong statement to you stating that your work on this project has been absolutely spectacular. You are the best value in legal assistance I have ever encountered in my 35 years of business experience. Not only is your knowledge very strong, the amount of work you get done per hour charged is very impressive. Another impressive outcome was the very strong endorsement of your excellent work from the acquiring company as well as their counsel."
