  • Norbert W. Sugayan Jr

    I have had the opportunity to work closely with Jonathan as both a colleague and a client over the last 15 years. He is a highly competent and creative lawyer, with excellent communication and client skills with subject matter expertise that encompasses securities law, M&A, and technology licensing. He brings creativity and business acumen that are real assets to his legal practice.
