I had the pleasure of working with David Pace in a highly contensted arbitration matter involving two sophisticated companies embroiled in a complex contractual dispute. I acted as co-counsel with David and others at his firm where we worked closely for over a year litigating against an opponent whose lawyers outnumbered our side by at least 3 to 1. David mastered the technical aspects of our client's business, the operations of our opponent's business, and he had extensive knowledge of the industry and the law surrounding the issues in dispute. He and I worked closely together to coordinate complicated discovery into technical aspects of the contractual relationship between the parties, to defend against claims brough against our client, and to prosecute the claims initiated by our client. David served as the thought leader to drive core case strategy during discovery and to set up the case for successful resolution. David was critical in assisting with the defeat of numerous motions for summary judgment filed by our opponent which ultimately played directly into the successful reolution of the dispute. Immediately after our oponent's summary judgment motions were denied, the parties engaged in a mediation where David played a key role in setting up the framework for a successful resolution of the dispute. While mediation was initially unsuccessful at resolving the dispute, through coordinated effort with David we were successful at keeping the pressure on our opponent heading into the arbitration at which point we were able to secure a successful resolution for our client.
My experience working with David was exceptional. David is an excellent lawyer, a good man, and a friend. I would highly recommend David.

Over the last tens years Dave Pace has advised me and my employer on three high risk contracts. All three carried risks in the 10's of millions to 100's of millions, if poorly managed. In all three cases Dave found angles, soft spots and grey areas in the agreement we were able to use to significantly improve our position and either settle the dispute or renegotiate the agreement with a much more favorable outcome than expected before Dave's joining us.
Dave is especially skilled at understanding the business implications of seemingly minor contract points and using those points to create leverage and options in the discussions.
Dave is my first and only choice, when it comes to seeking advise on complex issue.
