Mark Haddad
I have worked with Mark under difficult circumstances on complex matters involving time sensitive matters across multiple time zones. I am always impressed by his grace under pressure and his ability to discern - and react appropriately to - the rhythm of a complex transaction. All this while delivering the highest quality analysis, advice and legal services. He remains a close friend and trusted counselor.
