What Clients Say About Brian
Here are some accolades from my recent clients
I initially hired Brian to lead the legal functions of my company, which he did exceptionally. Brian quickly demonstrated that he was also valuable in many other ways and he emerged as a versatile business leader who assisted me in executing my business vision in a period of rapid growth. I relied on Brian to tackle the most difficult problems and he did so with competence, professionalism and a sense of urgency.
President & CEO
Brian is a supurb lawyer. He has assisted me with all kinds of matters from litigation, intellectual property, corporate formations, business structuring, raising investments, and real estate just to name some. I would not hesitate to work with Brian again and I would recommend him to any business owner looking for a competent, fair and smart business lawyer.
Entrepreneur & Investor
Brian was always the smartest guy in the room. He isn’t just a lawyer. He is also a savvy business person. He understands the legal framework as it relates to business decisions, always acting as a voice of reason. Most attorneys are just no-people, saying “no” as their automatic reaction to just about everything. But Brian is able to think more strategically and give advice that makes practical business sense. I would definitely recommend Brian’s expertise to anyone.
