Recently we turned to Michael Gerity to handle a complex deal as we finalized the sale of our business. He helped us navigate the confusion as we had never sold a business before, and he handled it with professionalism and compassion. As we moved through the process Michael pointed out areas of exposure that we needed to consider and then helped us address them appropriately. We truly feel that Michael helped create a calm amidst the chaos of selling a business that gave us more of a sense of confidence. Having Michael on our team allowed us to focus on the logistics as he did his job.
He was very good at explaining our points of exposure and how we might Michael walked us through the steps that we could expect and began working immediately on contracts put together contracts that covered uthe process itself and his recommendations for our situation. Although our circumstances presented a very tight timeline, Michael was extremely responsive and made himself available over the weekend, via text and with quick response when new information was introduced by our buyer. He helped us maintain a sense of calm throughout what could have been a very nerve-wracking process, and was able to present different scenarios to help us make decisions that were best for our business. The team at Israel & Gerity was nothing but professional and Lisa Hudson who introduced us to Michael was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.

Michael Gerity is a very talented trademark and business law attorney who has significant experience and knowledge of the law. Despite being a great person to work with and who communicates extremely well, he provides practical solutions to his clients. I refer my own clients in need of a trademark or business to Michael because I know they will be in good hands.

I first met Mr. Gerity when I was seeking help in an animal custody dispute case that was in civil court (superior and justice) when my normal domain is family court. He was extremely approachable, knowledgeable on contracts and civil litigation (which is what I needed his help for) and engaging with both me and my clients. He knows his stuff and he isn't afraid to try to come up with creative solutions! He is a consummate legal professional.
