I have known Wayne for 3+ decades, and my firm has worked with him since its inception in 1999. I used Wayne as my counsel for a multi-million dollar investment in December, 2015. Counsel for the other parties were NYC based.......which can always be challenging! Wayne handled all legal matters with aplomb, professionalism, and also came in with a very reasonable final bill. He provided top drawer service, and also smoothed over more than a few bumps in the road with his NYC legal counterparts. I recommend Wayne unqualifiedly.

Wayne has proven his value to us every time we need him. As our Legal Team Leader in our latest Recapitalization Deal, he assisted us through a Due Diligence Review and Legal Document Negotiations in a very short window of time. He was available 24 hours per day to make the transaction close on time ! Leading up to the closing of the transaction he kept all related parties(Private Equity, Commercial Lenders and each Legal Team) on task and was able to negotiate favorable terms to our advantage . Wayne's legal and business advice and attention to detail have been a key component to our business success over the last 30 years and he demonstrated his professionalism once again during this latest transaction. We are thankful he is on our TEAM.

Wayne and his team have done excellent work for my investment fund for over 10 years. He handles many of the matters himself and is always pleasant to opposing counsel, while still getting his points across. He takes the time to understand the transaction and to think through any potential issues that could possibly arise. He is also willing to allow changes to his wording in documents so long as the interests of his client are protected. Very experienced with banking and all other forms of financing so he is able to properly document the respective rights of the parties and his client. I would definitely recommend Wayne for those in need of a business or finance attorney.

Wayne has handled my company's debt and lending agreements for over 20 years. I have personally worked with him for the past 11 years. As Treasurer, I highly recommend Wayne. He has been an advocate for us, understands what we are trying to accomplish and how it fits into our current capabilities, is straight-forward, and a very nice person.

I first met Wayne Davis about 12 years ago when, as Managing Director of a major bank's private equity mezzanine fund, I invested in a company that Wayne represented. Over the ensuing two years I got to know Wayne better and when I left the bank to start my own fund, Wayne was a trusted adviser on organizational matters, etc. Over the past ten years Wayne has provided valuable advice regarding investment structure, M&A questions, contracts, and legal and business due diligence. I suspect he has represented my fund in over 30 investment transactions (totalling over $250MM in the aggregate) - always in a most professional manner. The thing that makes Wayne different is that it doesn't matter if the portfolio company is represented by a big New York firm or a local, sole practitioner - he represents himself and, as such, my fund, in a knowledgeable and professional manner.
