Review of exceptional lawyer, David Pace
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.

Creating Quality Options and Creating Leverage
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.

Excellent Arbitration and Mediation Attorney

He is highly accomplished and personable. Mr. Pace excels at the formulation of a successful legal strategy. David was highly involved with all aspects of the arbitration and mediation. Mr. Pace is the person you want on your side when things go wrong. He is very knowledgeable about the Information Technology (IT) industry and outsourcing. David is thoughtful and provides reality based credible options. I would highly recommend the use of his services.

A highly capable legal strategist.
David is highly intelligent. He is a brilliant legal tactician. He doesn't just know the law, he knows how to lead and persuade. In my case, David's strategic approach toward the opposing counsel was highly nuanced in spite of appearing to be brawn and bluster. The case went to mediation. By the end of the day, the opposing counsel was completely flustered and embarrassed. David has a chess master's approach to legal maneuvering and the law. He is a gifted critical thinker.

Providing His Clients with a Distinct Legal Advantage
I worked with David Pace at Affiliated Computer Services in Dallas. David provided his exceptional legal skills in developing services contracts for ACS with their clients many of which were Fortune 200 companies. Later, I contracted Mr. Pace's services when I was COO for a software and managed services subsidiary of a public company based in San Antonio. David provided my legal services help in developing and negotiating complex services and licensing agreements with my clients who were in the Communications Industry. We had an in house legal staff, but no one with the experience or vast skill sets which Mr. Pace possesses. He was always available when we needed his help. David has not only exception legal skills and experience with contract law and intellectual property law, but in addition he possesses tremendous business knowledge, skills and savvy. His ability to go beyond just the legalese, but to contribute to the business aspect requirements of our contracts was invaluable. David also become an industry subject matter expert in the Telecommunications Industry sector. I always felt we had an advantage in negotiating at the table with David Pace in our camp. A brilliant attorney who loves not only the law, but "doing deals" and papering complex multifaceted business transactions. David provided me with contract development support with client including Regional Bell companies, the largest competitive CLECs in the US and IBM as well as many others. I can safely recommend David Pace to any client looking for the very best legal representation in his speciality fields. David is a different league than most corporate attorneys in my experience an opinion.

Very knowledgeable, involved, commercially aware IT lawyer for complex issues
David worked with me and a team of internal lawyers and commercial, finance and operational folks in a very complex, large dollar IT outsourcing contract. He was part of our core team and provided valuable guidance and insight. He was not just involved in the very legalistic issues, but also all parts of the operations and commercials. He was respected and valued as a being proactive and involved - not just a "fly on the wall". When it was time to draft a position or a letter, David was a one man juggernaut. The most brilliant responses would be drafted with ease within minutes.

Technology and outsourcing lawyer
David Pace is the most knowledgeable lawyer I have worked with in the areas of technology and outsourcing. He has a excellent grasp of the law and of the kinds of provisions within contracts that are frequently in dispute. He has represented clients on both sides of those matters, so he can appreciate the perspectives of all parties.
