  • William J. Dyer

    I endorse this lawyer's work. Marty and I recently wound up a multi-million dollar international trade dispute -- one with action in Houston, Montreal, Calgary, Marseille, even Romania -- in which we represented opposing sides. As an advocate, he was zealous and very effective in contested court hearings. But he also entered the case with a reputation for frankness and sound judgment that, indeed, I quickly confirmed during our settlement negotiations. Many a lawyer in his shoes would have been slow to beat the swords into plowshares, because there's no question that a lawyer in his position could have milked the case for serious fees. Without ever compromising on the effectiveness of his advocacy, he showed himself to be open to creative solutions -- to the direct benefit of both his clients and mine. I'd welcome any future opportunity to work either with or against him.
