  • Matthew D. Latimer

    Mr. Runkel is a thoroughly competent and effective lawyer. He has a deep knowledge or corporate and securities transactions and associated regulatory systems. He is prompt, effective and a "can do" type of practitioner whose client-oriented approach to service is a refreshing burst of spring water on an otherwise parched legal landscape.
