""Russ brings together a couple of very unique traits that make him invaluable. He is superb in grasping technology and the business disruptions it can trigger. This grasp enables him to provide business and legal advise to his coworkers, partners and colleagues in ways that really create and retain value. Russ also has enormous patience to simplify legal language so that the listening party can easily understand the underlying genesis. Add all of this to a terrific work ethic and alacrity in turn around time -- and you have an outstanding individual !""

""I met Russell during business development and fund raising for our marketing database business in SE Asia (Singapore). He has a great combination of experience in law, technology and business with an international perspective. I have gone back to him several times since with engagements for VC funding in medtech and again with international IP connections. He is responsive and generous helping to make connections with the right contacts to get deals done. If you get a chance to work with him, do it.""
