Securities offerings Attorney | Feb 28
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"Joe and I sat opposite on a financing recently. Rarely have I had the opportunity to work across from someone as consummately professional as Joe. He is at once an aggressive advocate for his clients, a savvy business mind, a great technician and most importantly a nice person. I especially appreciated his well developed commercial sensibilities and his ability to consistently find common ground in negotiation. I give Joe my unqualified recommendation."
Financial markets and services Attorney | Dec 12
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"Joseph Lucosky and I have counseled a number of publicly-traded small cap companies. Mr. Lucosky has a wealth of knowledge concerning securities and corporate law, and he uses this knowledge and experience to enable our clients to reach their desired goals. He often counsels clients that do not have extensive budgets for attorney's fees, yet in a cost-efficient manner, he effectively accomplishes his client's goals. The clients speak highly of Mr. Lucosky, and I can tell why. I endorse Mr. Lucosky whole-heartedly."
Securities offerings Attorney | Jul 21
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Joseph Lucosky on multiple matters including most recently on a complicated securities/lending matter. He is a passionate advocate for his clients and one of the hardest working attorneys I know. He will negotiate a the best possible deal for his clients no matter how large or small the matter, but he also knows when to “put his pencil down” and get a deal closed. He is well known and well respected by his fellow members of the corporate and securities bar. I endorse Joseph Lucosky without reservation."
Unknown Attorney | Jul 05
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I endorse Joseph Lucosky. Joseph is an extremely hard working attorney and one of the most intense and dedicated people I have had the pleasure of knowing personally. This intensity and dedication to clients and their businesses, combined with Joseph’s knowledge and understanding of the law and his practical insight, gives Joseph (and his firm) an unparalleled edge over other corporate and securities attorneys. I recommend Joseph Lucosky without reservation."
Securities offerings Attorney | Jul 05
Relationship: Co-worker
"Joseph Lucosky is a consummate professional of the highest order and I recommend him without reservation. He is an expert in the fields of corporate finance and securities law and has specialized knowledge with respect to middle-market, small-cap and micro-cap issuers. He consistently performs at a level usually only reserved for the top New York (Big Law) corporate law partners – the only difference is that he doesn’t charge $800 per hour for his expert knowledge and advice. In addition, Joe has a vast rolodex and is extremely well connected throughout the industry so he is often times able to add a tremendous amount of value to his clients business and help them get to the next level. Aside from being an amazingly proficient attorney with an encyclopedic knowledge of the law, he is also a really nice guy and clients especially appreciate his willingness to listen and his extraordinary dedication to his clients. Again, I recommend Joe Lucosky without reservation."
