I have had the pleasure of going through multi M&A transactions with MDS Lawyers, the last one with Rosanna Tallarico as the lead. She is very knowledgeable and competent on all aspects of the process. She diligently and methodically goes through all the steps. Rosanna it was a pleasure working with you on the last project and looking forward to the next one!

We had the opportunity to work with Rosanna and her team to successfully complete a time sensitive business transaction. Our investment banker had commented that this was the fastest and smoothest timeline project that they had ever worked in. We are happy with their pleasant demeanor and business acumen and will highly recommend Rosanna and MDS to others that want results.
