    Dave is a very bright, capable lawyer who will take the time to figure out a challenging issue and get it right. He's got a wide range of experience, including doing work for successful companies such as Amazon.com, and is a frequent speaker on securities law and other topics. I've done a number of deals opposite Dave over the years - he stands out as someone who really seems to love the law and is engaged in his work.
