Testimonials

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.

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

Harry represented Seagram when my company purchased their Puerto Rico operations. He was talented and tough, but forthright and fair. When he left Seagram, we wanted him on our side, and we have relied on him ever since.

Felix J. Serrallés, Jr.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Destileria Serrallés, Inc.

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.

Neal Thompson
Hedge Fund Trader

Whether a real estate transaction or a new marketing venture, I rely upon Michael for his amazing contract writing skills and his sound advice which always emphasizes a results-oriented, pragmatic approach.

Chuck Apelian
Entrepreneur and Land Use Consultant

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.
