Posted by Yoel
Lee is a top notch attorney that was able to resolve a long list of issues that my company inherited from my previous corporate attorneys. He is extremely sharp and knowledgeable in all aspects of corporate and taxation law. We had several complex incorporation issues, and Lee was able to come up with sound solutions to each and every problem. We also utilized his knowledge to perform diligence on contracts that were drafted by our real estate attorneys, and his comments were tremendously valuable. In conclusion, Lee’s services are worth every penny. We look forward to continue leveraging his knowledge in our future business endeavors.

Lee was our counsel from getting our startup company started to its dissolution. He was kind and understanding of the pain startup founders go through. He was the knowledgeable and steady hand that we needed in ensuring we did all the right things and did it the right way. He handled every issue with diligence and in a cost effective way. He was always quite responsive and got back quickly on my queries and requests. I will highly recommend him to any one looking for a corporate law counsel.

I have worked with Lee for almost 20 years on deals and issues of every size and kind. His insight and value goes far beyond just the pure legal matter at hand. He is one of the few lawyers I have ever met that understand getting a deal done, or solving a problem, is the core goal and that the lawyering should help, not hinder.

I know and work with Louis Black since 1998. I hardly recommend this lawyer. The most trustworthy and responsive person who i ever met and heard about! I feel in good hands, working with him! always informed what's going on, and because of his high knowledge, confident at all times!!!

Lee Black offers exceptional quality, keen insight, and a practical approach to law that gives clients as much support as they need -- no more, no less. As the owner of an elite executive search firm, he has served as my virtual Corporate Counsel for the past decade. He is extraordinarily responsive and informed. Moreover, he is the consummate gentleman, elegant, articulate, and well-mannered -- all powerful tools he deploys on your behalf. However, he does not hesitate to do battle for you when adversaries throw down the gauntlet. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I have been using Mr. Black month after month after month since the mid-90s on multiple start-ups, board seats, and investments. His work has spanned employment contracts, incorporation, trademark filings, lawsuits, M&A transactions, angel and venture capital investments, investment bank engagements, and licensing agreements, among other areas of corporate and tax law. All the work is top-notch, done efficiently, and completed at a fair price. He's also a terrific board member, serving as a corporate secretary as well as an independent who carefully balances business operations with the minimum legal work required to achieve business goals, a rarity among lawyers who love to over-think the legal issues.

Lee is an outstanding corporate and M&A attorney. His attention to detail is excellent. He knows the law inside and out. He is an excellent negotiator and highly experienced. He is the type of good lawyer you often find in a large firm but with the access and cost-effectiveness of a small firm. Highly recommended.

Lee has been our corporate counsel on 2 of our companies. He knows a broad area of subjects really well. Unlike larger firms that I have worked with, you get to work with the partner directly in a very cost efficient manner. Lee is a businessman as well as an attorney, and will quickly help you focus on the important issues. This approach allowed us to get much legal work done for a fraction of the cost at larger firms. He has advised me a numerous issues over the past 8 years ranging from company formation, stocks and option plans, contracts, contract disputes, tax matters and insurance.
I have recommended him to several other friends, and recommend him now without reservation.

Lee has been our corporate lawyer for over a decade. His ethics and standards of excellence are unimpeachable. 85 Broads Unlimited LLC was founded as an exclusive network for current and former Goldman Sachs women professionals worldwide. We have worked with Lee on all legal matters pertaining to 85 Broads, including our foundation.
Lee's knowledge of our business allowed us to ask him for advice on virtually every aspect of our business, domestically and internationally. Lee has always been thoughtful and just as importantly, respectful and kind. There have been many times when we've had to call upon his wisdom and knowledge on a fast moving negotiation or partnership opportunity. I would recommend Lee without reservation. He is the best of the best.

A Partner's knowledge in every call. Exceptional service with great "business sense" gives us the perfect combination of skills and level of support we need. Timeliness of deliverables is terrific. Adherence to a pre-approved budget is the norm not the exception.
