Testimonials

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.

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.

During the sixteen years that KB&G has represented Sultana, it has grown into one of the region’s largest confectionery and food product distributors. Michael and his dedicated team earned my trust many years ago and now handle all aspects of our business including financing, employee matters, distribution agreements, real estate transactions, commercial litigations, and special projects which require cutting-edge contracts.

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.

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.
