Alberto J. Torruella, Esq.
Executive Vice President, Destileria Serrallés, Inc.

KB&G did an excellent job representing us in an extremely complex matter relating not only to asset-based financing in the real estate arena, but also public securities issues. Harry Beatty and Michael Kent were not only absolutely on point on the legal issues, but they were also able to bring about a practical economic solution to our over $50 million problem.

Thomas J. Cannon, III, Esq.

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.
