Testimonials

Michael Kent has been the lawyer for my literary agency for over a decade. He has always been very supportive and has been an excellent guide on all aspects of the law. I would highly recommend Kent, Beatty & Gordon for any and all legal matters.

Barbara Lowenstein
CEO, Lowenstein Associates, 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.

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

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.

Phyllis Cavaliere
METRO Newspaper Advertising Services, Inc.

Michael handles all of my legal affairs, from drafting celebrity endorsement, broadcast and design contracts, to protecting my intellectual property rights. He especially shines when dealing with my many “unusual” situations. He is able to quickly grasp the facts and explain the legal issues involved in a clear and concise fashion.

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.
