Ari is a very experienced professional, with a clear understanding of what Small and Medium companies need. The costs are competitive, compared to what you find in the market, but his support is outstanding, going beyond what you would expect from your lawyer.
He takes personal interest in your company, what you are trying to achieve and sees to it that you are correctly guided, supported and all things from his side are delivered on time and in full.
As a foreign SME coming to the US, we found lawyers here to be generally very rigid in their approach and very suspicious of foreigners. Ari has been outstanding from day one, receptive and always very fast in his responses to us.
We chose him over other offers we had, because of his receptiveness, interest and general understanding of the legal requirements of business, as well as a very cost effective focus, advise and support he has provided us throughout.
Generally we don't any areas of complaint regarding the work Ari has delivered. Things work well, as discussed and planned. Things happen, on time and within budget normally.
I would not hesitate to recommend Ari to anyone looking for a competent lawyer, focused on companies.

Arieh was of great benefit to me during a time when I was expanding our domestic and international business footprint.
I had to negotiate complex international business legal issues and negotiate 20+ year leases domestically on commercial and industrial assets with inherent EPA and regulatory issues.
I could always count on Arieh to listen to everything I had to say, and understand the entire picture, even in an environment as complex and foriegn as the department of defense and government contracting, and still provide me with very sound counsel or opinion.
Arieh was invaluable to me on several critical projects, including classified work and establishing new business operations in 2 of the highest-barrier-to-entry countries in the world, in addition to advising me on day to day business and compliance issues.
I would not hesitate to hire or recommend Arieh to any entrepreneur or company seeking expert corporate counsel.

Ari embodies everything you would want from an attorney. He is thorough, thoughtful,knowledgeable and cares for you as a both a client and person. His soft spoken voice is calming, but he can be ruthless when a situation calls for it. He is informative about both negative and positive aspects, which I have found to be of extreme value as it eliminates the element of surprise, an emotion that is not desirable in matter involving the need for a lawyer. He partners with you- and I have felt truly protected while working with him.
