I have been working with Bill Stempel since 2007, when I was introduced to him by a friend who is also one of his clients. I have been very impressed with his intelligence, judgment, and broad experience in health care, life sciences, and business in general. His advice and representation have been extremely helpful to me in a variety of contract, employment, and other matters. Bill is one of my most trusted advisors and I have recommended him to a number of colleagues, who have been very pleased. He is remarkably easy to talk to, a caring and astute listener, a skilled and effective communicator, and a dependable source of wise and practical counsel on both business and legal issues. On top of that he has always been very responsive, even on short notice, and works well remotely (I am in California and he is based in Connecticut). Bill is efficient in his use of time. I am very glad to have him as my lawyer and I highly recommend him to others.

Bill has been a trustworthy pragmatic and very responsive attorney and advisor to my business. He is a tough negotiator with a very kind and calm demeanor. He has a thorough knowledge of the law and I rely on his judgment to make the correct decisions. He has reviewed every contract I have signed and I have always benefitted from his thoughtful reviews. Sometimes, the other side has expressed gratitude to him for his review as well. I would recommend him unhesitatingly. As a small business owner he has given me the cadillac service that only large companies have access to. I am very grateful for that.

William Stempel is an excellent lawyer. I found "Bill" to be down to earth, approachable, and very clear in his explanations and clarifications. He was very responsive to my requests and needs. I first used Bill's services to assist in a contract dispute with a former employer. Bill was clear, firm when necessary, and highly effective in that situation. I later hired Bill to oversee the formation of our Independent Pharmacy. I highly recommend using William Stempel for any contract, employment and / or healthcare venture or need; you'll get straightforward answers, fair pricing, highly effective work-product.
