Non-Compete
I always feel that Larry has our best interests in mind and he is extremely knowledgeable in this area. He takes the time to explain the issues, concerns and strategy around any action that we took. I would highly recommend Larry.

Larry's excellent
Larry is level headed, listens well, is helpful and very responsive. This adds to his knowledgable expertise as a bonus. I would highly recommend him.

Fantastic counsel on short notice
Larry was kind enough to take on the worst sort of client; myself coming to him with a last minute request. He not only dealt with the particular ask, but also walked through other pertinent items in the agreement document to provide context for me to consider going forward. He came highly recommended to me from staff at a large Denver-area firm, and I'd highly recommend Larry to anyone.

Very responsive and helpful
Larry represented my fund as a co-council on a securities fraud case. Larry was capable and realistic. He helped provide the appropriate level of skepticism to ensure that our expectations were realistic. We ended up settling for a satisfactory amount and Larry was instrumental in achieving this positive result.

Outstanding
Larry responded very quickly to what was a very stressful situation for me. He expertly guided me through it and gave me great advice. I felt very fortunate to have him in my corner. I enthusiastically recommend him and have recommended him to many contacts already.

Highly recommended litigator
Larry has represented me on a number of matters and--compared to my other attorney experiences--has distinguished himself for his tremendous ability to rapidly assimilate a lot of detailed information and concisely discern essential arguments [both on my behalf and for preparatory defense]. This ability extends across industries, having seen him adeptly acquire essential industry expertise to shape an effective strategy. In short... he can prepare effectively and professionally in a lot less time than others I've experienced, is wise and adaptable with industry-specific expertise needed for any case, and is an exceptional communicator when conveying his strategy and approaches.
