Trent is knowledgeable, responsive and well connected in the investment community. If you are a business owner looking for the best securities attorney in the city look no further.

In my business I have had many dealing with corporare attorneys and Trent tops the list by far.
While most corporate attorney's seem to 'go through the motions' with their work, Trent seems to take personal ownership of his work and clients' needs. He is honest and forthright, providing advice and counsel that is as knowledgeable as it is creative.
I would recommend Trent without reservation or reserve.

Trent always gives concise and accurate advice that is backed up by thorough and detailed research. He is extremely knowledgeable and I always trust his advice.
Megan Muir, Venture capital Attorney
I highly recommend Trent. He is an excellent lawyer with great business sense. He is highly skilled, extremely responsive to clients, and very efficient. Trent has significant experience advising emerging companies in the early stages (such as formation and venture financings) as well as advising public companies with their securities offerings, SEC compliance, and corporate governance. He's very good at what he does.
