    I have worked with, and opposite, corporate attorneys for 26+ years and had the honor to work with John and see his exceptional mind and legal skills first hand for most of those years. I firmly believe that John is the best corporate, securities, and M&A attorney in Washington, bar none. Indeed, I would rank him among the very best attorneys nationally. When John speaks, everyone listens.
