Professional, Knowledgeable, Reliable
Stefan helped me navigate all the legal aspects of creating several business entities and seamlessly incorporating them into an existing business portfolio. From filing the paperwork to create the LLCs and developing the operating agreements to merging the interests of existing businesses and partnerships, he made the complex law simple to understand. Despite the many changes and the various views of the principals involved, Stefan was always very professional, knowledgeable and available to thoroughly explain the options available under law. His experience in both accounting and law were invaluable in aligning each entity with our stated objectives. I highly recommend Stefan for any legal work pertaining to business law. As I move forward with these new businesses, I am much more confident knowing I have Stefan in my corner.
