Facilitated selling of business -- amazing work
Terry and his team guided me through the recent selling of my business. His experience was obvious and reassuring, especially for me not having gone through such a process before. He educated me along the way, and provided me the information in lay terms to help me make informed decisions. Yes, of course he thoroughly understands real estate law, but he also understands business. He was deliberate and persistent in his representation, especially during a couple sticky negotiation points with the buyer, but yet he was diplomatic and poised. He even takes my lawyer jokes in stride.

Very Good Counsel
Terry has assisted me with possible purchases of two businesses – with one going to completion. I sincerely appreciate not only Terry’s legal guidance, but his views and experience as a small business owner. There were multiple instances where I needed Terry to walk me through (in very detailed form) what each of step of the process entailed, the risks and opportunities, as well as his own opinion on what he would do. Terry was never overtly directive in his advice, but I always felt fully aware of the pros and cons of any decision. I am lucky to have found Terry and he continues to be my trusted lawyer/advisor today.

Seller representation in a business acquisition.
I am a commercial lender and refer clients to Terry Gerbers that are looking to document the purchase of a business and commercial real estate. Our recent transaction had equity for a stock purchase coming from a 401K rollover. Terry's expertise in this type of transaction provided reliable and timely results and make the buy/sell transaction go smoothly.

Long time relationship...never disappoints
I've worked with Terry on a myriad of business issues and quite frankly have never had an issue. His responsiveness and attention to detail have allowed us to worry very little about our organization. Terry's number is on speed dial and it's comforting to know I don't have to ever seek another opinion.

Great lawyer for Small Business. Smart, Saavy, and Experienced.
As a small businessman I am happy to endorse Terry Gerbers. Terry was the lawyer of record for the company I owned for nearly five years, from June 2008 to December 2012. He helped with the purchase of my business and managed ongoing contract and annual filings. I found Terry to be smart, quick, efficient, and well spoken. He is experienced and saavy, and consistently adds value with his knowledge of the legal, banking, and business communities in Northeast Wisconsin. Occasionally, when he was in court, I would have to wait a day or two for an answer, but it was always worth the wait. I can endorse Terry without reservations.

Business Sale and lawsuit resoluton
Atty Gerbers has performed excellent work for me on 2 specific issues. Both were rather complicated and required his expertise: 1) He represented me in the sale of my business with several potential buyers. The sale process had several stumbling blocks which he was very helpful in overcoming. 2) I had a lawsuit against me which I believed was without merit. Gerbers was very diligent in pursuing a strategy that resulted in an acceptable result for me. I would use Mr Gerbers in the future.

I have used Terry Gerbers firm for nearly 10 years. He has been of great assistance with not only my personal legal needs but also with my businesses. I am confident he can handle most business needs, but has directly helped me with acquisitions, employee relations, mergers, franchising and sale of businesses.
