Expert asset purchase knowledge
Bud and his firm made our acquisition process the best it could be. It was apparent that he‘s done a ton of asset purchase agreements. At our initial consultation, we talked about what I wanted to see in the agreement and Bud suggested changes that would protect us as individuals and shareholders. As we exchanged drafts with the buyer’s counsel, Bud caught several mistakes and regressions. He was on time and prepared for every call and meeting we had. Any time we met in person, copies of the agreements were on the conference table when we walked in, marked up and flagged with the items we were there to talk about. He made me feel like my business was important. Learned a lot, and we got the deal done with what I feel were very favorable terms for me and my company. Highly recommended!

Professional and Knowledgable
As a business owner living in Las Vegas for thirty years, I can definitely say that Bud is absolutely one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with . We recently retained his services to sell a large, multiple location business. Bud was a true professional. He gave his complete attention to my case and provided careful consideration to avoid problems before they happen. In addition, he listened and addressed our concerns, and kept them in mind throughout the process, The best bonus is that when we called we were able to speak with him personally every time. Within the firm he works with several attorneys who are a wealth of knowledge as well. For anyone seeking to sell or purchase a business or needing assistance with other business matters within his scope, I would highly recommend this firm hands down.
