I used Dan and his law firm to form a company for me in China. But we ended up not forming a company when Dan recommended that we instead simply use a third party hiring agency in China to hire my two employees. This saved me tens of thousands of dollars in attorneys' fees and tens of thousands of additional dollars I would have had to spend on running a company in China. Dan's recommendations proved that he is more interested in doing good work for his firm's clients than in grabbing a fast buck and that has convinced me to use his firm whenever it makes sense.
Our company found itself in a difficult situation with a Chinese manufacturer that we had been doing business with for a decade. Our corporate attorney felt inadequate to counsel us on issues dealing with Chinese businesses so, after much research and vetting of other attorneys, he recommended we work with a specialist – Mr. Harris, whom he described as “the best in the business,” on the matter. So we did.
Mr. Harris was absolutely amazing; his deep knowledge of and passion for Chinese business culture, manufacturing issues and legal matters quite frankly blew our mind. And we have been doing business in China for over 20 years. We felt like we finally found someone who “knows the ropes” of doing business in China, and understood the gravity of the problems we were dealing with, which was an enormous relief. His counsel was incredible and driven by his passion and curiosity to, first and foremost., help us to navigate these difficult circumstances, and succeed with our claim. Mr. Harris was committed and accessible at all times. Never once did we get the feeling he put his needs ahead of ours. He continues to stay in touch which we appreciate.
Having worked with many attorneys over the years, I can honestly say Mr. Harris is one of the best and a pleasure to work with. He has earned my highest recommendation.
Dan provided effective and helpful advice. He was able to help us strongly defend our claim in discussions with a large multinational corporation. At the same time, he encouraged us to keep the door open to discussions at the right moment.
His willingness to listen closely to our assessment of the dispute and strategy going forward was instrumental in acheiving the desired result.
I have been working with lawyers my whole adult life and Dan is my favorite of the bunch. He is so no nonsense it is sometimes disarming. I am writing this now right after he fought me for a week to do something a particular way, which way ended up working beautifully and saved my company tens of thousands of dollars in legal fees. It is just such a joy to work with such a totally honest professional like Dan. He's just such a great guy.
Mr. Harris handled a settlement case with my former employer, a major shipping and logistics corporation. The corporation downsized me while I was posted overseas in Russia; there were no issues with my performance, it was a purely financial decision but I was left in a difficult position -- the expatriation stipulated sale of our home and vehicles, and we would return to the United States without work or residence. Even worse, Russian law allows employees to be released with only 2 months' salary in this case. I had transferred to Russian contract recently and was very exposed.
I did a web search and contacted a number of firms but Harris-Moure was the only one to respond. Mr. Harris carefully collected materials from me and reviewed them. He asked pointed questions, did not waste time and in short order found communication between myself and the company confirming a defined expatriation term.
Dan told me I had a reasonable case to claim estoppel of my contract with the corporation. I in turn used this information during my negotiations for a final settlement and managed to get a fair offer of over one year's salary.
I recommend Dan Harris very highly. He did a great job staying in touch with me even though he was travelling quite a bit. His advice was spot on and really helped us financially. Finally, he's a man with outstanding character -- he stayed in touch after the settlement, just to see how things are going.
