General Counsel, Cartera Commerce, Inc.
John Simmons the Panitch team have done exemplary work defending our SaaS/managed services e-commerce company against several patent trolls over the years, as well as performing transactional work such as evaluating potential patent portfolio acquisitions and proposed patents. He does an excellent job of taking a pragmatic approach, understanding both business and legal considerations, and all the while ensuring that billings reflect the right cost/benefit balance, particularly for a cost-sensitive early-stage company like ours. John communicates well, and is smart, experienced, personable, and easy to work with. He also is very aggressive and savvy in litigation, and his strategy and advice has always been spot-on and has led to successful outcomes in every matter for which we've engaged him. Highly recommended, without reservation.
