Smart & Efficient Attorneys
Testimonial Review: Matt O’Reilly The attorneys at SOGT have handled everything for us from M&A transactions, corporate governance, real estate matters to deferred compensation plans, as well as day-to-day contract reviews. Chuck Ormsby and Jill Bellak have expertly handled every aspect of each transaction. When our company identified an acquisition target, the firm was able to consummate the closing in an extremely tight timeframe. The attorneys were thorough and were able to meet our target closing date. In another instance, when we sold our company, the buyer became difficult, but with Chuck’s guidance, we reached a settlement of mutual satisfaction to all parties. Both Chuck and Jill have the ability to simplify complex matters. They do not over-complicate issues and do not rack up legal fees. Chuck has a strategic, practical and no-nonsense approach. When Chuck Ormsby talks, he talks with purpose – From beginning to end. I love working with Chuck and the firm!

President & CEO
For most of my professional career, I absolutely hated any and all lawyers. Then I got exposed to Chuck Ormsby and his team of attorneys. SOGT single-handedly changed my opinion of the legal profession! The firm has handled a multitude of transactions for my company throughout the years and has seen us through several business transitions. The attorneys at SOGT know how to prioritize issues and manage the spend. They are not out to just rack up legal fees, but are able to plan out how to handle certain matters over time and not overwhelm us with getting hit with too many charges all at once. The responsiveness on behalf of everyone at SOGT is the thing we know and love the most about the firm! Their team of attorneys and staff always make me feel like the number one priority whenever I call, and each and every question I have is always answered on time. Through it all, Chuck Ormsby not only became my MOST trusted advisor and confidante, but a great friend. There is no one I trust more than Chuck! JNR Capital Partners

Highly Recommend
I wanted to commend Chuck Ormsby and Ashleigh Morales of SOGT Law for guiding us through a complicated buyout of a business. I can honestly say that I don’t know how we would have done it without their direction and good counsel. In addition to excellent legal advice, they provided strategic input and understanding of not only the financial, but the emotional challenges that we encountered during this transaction. They were very responsive, and guided us all the way through to a successful conclusion. I would highly recommend their services, and the specialized services of all of the attorneys in the firm.

High-caliber level of service and representation
We worked on a real estate matter involving complex transactions which were brought to a successful conclusion. Chuck Ormsby had a firm grasp and understanding of the complex nature of the business transaction. He is creative, brilliant and honest. He constantly made himself available and everyone at the firm was responsive to my needs. You are paying for a high-caliber level of service and representation when you engage Chuck and the firm.

More than just our attorney
Chuck really listens to us and advises us based on the direction we want to take rather than simply telling us how to do something which is the approach so many attorneys we have worked with previously have taken. Chuck not only looks at the legal issues, but the practical business issues as well. As such, he has quickly emerged as much more than just our attorney, we look to Chuck as a trusted business adviser to our firm.

The Business Lawyer of Business Lawyers
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.
