Testimonials

I tend to operate at 1,000 miles per hour and Michael somehow manages to keep up with me. I have never seen him lose his cool or his focus. His personalized involvement and caring is extremely refreshing and allows me the freedom to devote my energies to the creative aspects of my businesses.

I’m a currency trader. Jack writes aggressive contracts for me that are enforced. He seems to have a crystal ball because he anticipates issues and problems before they arise. He has also successfully represented me in a complex mediation. He got me what I was owed, and for that I am very grateful.

Hedge Fund Trader

Being an attorney, I can tell you that there are many firms that can analyze the legal positions but few that can utilize that knowledge and bring about an extremely positive result for the client, which KB&G has done in its representation of us.

Harry represented Seagram when my company purchased their Puerto Rico operations. He was talented and tough, but forthright and fair. When he left Seagram, we wanted him on our side, and we have relied on him ever since.

Felix J. Serrallés, Jr.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Destileria Serrallés, Inc.

Harry and I worked out a very complex and challenging technological agreement on behalf of Seagram and DuPont with a reluctant third party venturer. Despite the strong potential for conflicts of interest and several seeming stalemates, Harry made it work, and work well.
