I had the privilege of working with Mr. Herman, as co-counsel, on an arbitration case involving an international franchise for Brazil and Uruguay.
As a lawyer, Mr. Herman is extremely efficient and a natural strategist. As a colleague, he knows how to counsel and when to suggest and take suggestions on the case. In addition, Mr. Herman took the point of view of the client and keep all the team and clients well informed about risks and development of the case.
Mr. Herman knowledge of Spanish also made a difference in catching up with the cultural and legal gap of common law jurisdiction vis-á-vis the civil law tradition.

Mario has an amazing ability to sift through all the useless minutia and identify the most relevant issues related to the case. He was always accessible and provided well reasoned and concise counsel. I would highly recommend his services to anyone. Although my case was settled months ago I continue to seek his advice and counsel.

I found Mario to be very personable and informative. He's very obviously skilled at his profession but it is his "human" side that made me choose him. He really goes out of his way to explain the process, keep me informed and be fair. This is the first time I am seeking legal counsel for a franchise issue and going through the Federal Court filing process can be an unnerving process- I feel very confident with Mario at the helm.
