My business partner and I were very fortunate to have Geoff in our corner during a recent M&A transaction we were involved in. Geoff’s calm, collected and straightforward approach coupled with his in-depth knowledge of M&A saved us countless hours of unnecessary back and forth, not to mention thousands of dollars in legal fees. Geoff was instrumental in getting the deal across the finish line. I would have every confidence in working with Geoff again on future transactions as well as highly recommended him to anyone looking for an excellent M&A Lawyer.
