Testimonials

Jack has helped in securing our top talent by preparing and negotiating employment agreements for our key personnel in our restaurant and wine bar businesses. He has also helped amend our investor and operating documentation, strengthening our agreements, resulting in peace of mind. Jack is extremely good at what he does. I recommend him unequivocally for all hospitality-related legal work.

August Cardona
Epicurean Management Co.

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.

Jack B. Wielar
Business Consultant (Formerly: DuPont Separation Systems, Georgia Pacific, Norel Paper Company)

When Jack took on my wrongful termination case, he immediately understood the value of my employment agreement because he writes them himself. He was exactly what I needed in a lawyer. He stood up to a large technology corporation and got me everything I was owed.

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.

Eric Zemsky
Founder and CEO of Spellbound Media, Inc.

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.
