Testimonials

Her professional and commercial minded approach meant that this difficult transaction was able to move forward and not stagnate in legal argument. Her expertise, attention to detail, excellent communication skills and her ability to frame all issues within the context of the deal are without question.


As a business owner and operator, I was not used to the complexities and legal requirements surrounding an acquisition process. Jennifer was exemplary in providing me with the clarity and understanding of the legal documentation, processes and most importantly to me, in very good time and in a manner that gave me the utmost confidence in negotiating and tackling head on with the buyers and their legal representatives.


The management and handling of the legal side of my business sales by Jennifer was above and beyond what I expected in terms of complete management from start to finish…which helped tremendously for continuity, complete understanding of all facets of the transaction and finally getting us over the line.
