True partner to your company
I've known and worked with Tony for quite some time. He's been enormously helpful to me - from navigating the first steps in setting up a company to financing matters and complex legal issues we run into. Most of all, he's truly someone you can call a partner to your company. Our success is his success, and he'll always be in your corner to give you candid advice.

Excellent VC lawyer
Hired Tony and TKN Law to negotiate a financing round for my luxury goods business. Very knowledgeable about capital raising and understands how to strike the right balance between founder and investor needs. Highly recommend for anyone with a startup or small business, especially when it comes to raising money.
