Relationship: Worked together on matter
I enthusiastically endorse Danton. Danton and I have worked on several matters together. Danton is one of the smartest lawyers I have met. He is solid on the legal side, and so practical regarding the business issues, which as a corporate lawyer I am uniquely qualified to recognize. I have enormous respect for what Danton brings to any business issue or conflict in which intellectual property is involved.
