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.

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.

I’m a currency trader. Jack writes aggressive contracts for me that are enforced. He seems to have a crystal ball because he anticipates issues and problems before they arise. He has also successfully represented me in a complex mediation. He got me what I was owed, and for that I am very grateful.

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.
