Attorneys as a group don't enjoy the best of reputations - and many have earned that dubious distinction. But Charles "Chuck" Ormsby could change the minds of even the most cynical lawyer bashers. Chuck has served as my corporate counsel for over 20 years. In that time, he has evolved from legal advisor to dear friend, and he accomplished this by being extremely competent at what he does and at the same time, compassionate and caring about his clients. In my experience with mergers and acquisitions, lawyers were often referred to as "deal killers", because of their propensity to laden a deal down with contract language that made the other side wince and push away from the negotiating table. Chuck is the consummate negotiator; he never loses sight of the objective and he possesses a King Solomon-like wisdom to know when to push and when to back off. I have seen him settle very contentious matters in this way, that looked like they would remain stalemated indefinitely. Chuck has also surrounded himself with a very talented cast of attorneys whose skills compliment his own, and make his firm a veritable one-stop shop. If you're reading this because you're looking for an excellent attorney and law firm, I strongly recommend Chuck Ormsby and Semanoff, Ormsby, Greenberg & Torchia.
