    Josh is the longtime corporate counsel for a mutual client. I have had the opportunity to work with him in that capacity to help resolve some challenging situations for the client in a positive way. I know from my own long-standing relationship with the client that he is responsive, highly regarded, grasps the needs of a private, consumer-oriented, and constantly evolving business very well. I would not hesitate to recommend Josh to my clients in need of smart, efficient and strategic corporate business advice.
