Alberto J. Torruella, Esq.
Executive Vice President, 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.

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

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.

Jack and Harry transcend the typical definition of what an attorney does. They have an eloquent way of stating the facts and solutions; it is almost like poetry. I’ve worked with both and relied on their expertise to get the job done. They are never reluctant to state their professional opinion on what is best for a client. The attorneys at KB&G are truly a great combination of both business and personal attorneys.

For more than 25 years, Michael has been my personal and business attorney. Recently, Michael identified the critical issues in a very unique land use development/re-zoning project and then crafted a very detailed contract which completely protected my interests.
