Testimonials

When I was exploring an investment opportunity, Harry thought of every aspect to protect my money. He developed a structure and implemented it right away, protecting my assets while facilitating the investment itself.

Christian W. Breitweiser
Corporate Jet Support, 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.

Business Consultant (Formerly: DuPont Separation Systems, Georgia Pacific, Norel Paper Company)

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.
