Enthusiastic Recommendation of Hillary H. Hughes
I was so impressed by Hillary's work when I first worked with her at Sonnenschein, I kept in touch with her over time to be sure that I could find her when I needed her. And that need arose when I took over the reins of an early stage company in the healthcare field. At my new company I reviewed the documents created by other attorneys who had served the company and I felt they did not have the thoroughness and attention to detail that were needed as I took the company to the next level. Fortunately, Hillary had joined a firm - Garvey, Schubert, Barer - who could support an early stage company such as mine. And the timing was perfect as we entered into a major negotiation for our first large scale contract. Successful negotiations are about attitude, aptitude, strategy, and execution and Hillary excels on all counts. She is a pleasure to work with - tough-minded but with a sense of humor even in the heat of battle. Even when not in negotiations, Hillary is always "on the case" and her follow up skills are remarkable. In addition to working with Hillary on this significant customer contract where we were responsible for all the documents, I have worked with Hillary on employment contracts, stock option documents, an offering memorandum, general corporate documents such as hardware sales, software licensing, evaluation agreements, NDA's, etc. so I can attest to her talents across a multitude of legal areas.
