Best Kept secret in Law
Attorney hired to design and implement complex business-contract transaction (corporate acquisition valued in excess of $100 Million Dollars).

Transaction concluded flawlessly with both sides exceptionally pleased that all problems were worked out professionally, cost effectively and quickly.
