Testimonials

I was recommended to Michael by a partner at a large firm who realized that my then start-up company could not afford that firm’s fees. At KB&G I receive the expertise of a large firm delivered with a sensitivity to the realities of my budget. Michael helps guide me through the minefields that face young entrepreneurs.

I brought Harry in as General Counsel for several packaging companies which I ran or for which I consulted. He is my lawyer of choice. Harry not only is the preeminent deal lawyer I know, he is a business expert. He is the best business advisor I have in the world.

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.

Harry has been my go-to guy since 1994, when he engineered and walked us through a very difficult leveraged management buy-out with great success. I feel very protected with Harry on my side. Regardless of the legal issue, I can count on Harry and his team to help 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.
