      I have had the pleasure of working with Farschad for a number of years on a highly complex and high-stakes matter. Not only are his intellect and litigation chops second to none, but I have never seen anyone work harder and almost single-handedly move mountains on the eve of trial than Farschad. I highly recommend and endorse him.
