What others say


“Boris managed to strike the perfect tone to push this one to a resolution and made the right call in getting the directors together for a non-legal discussion at the critical point of the mediation when a walk-away looked the most likely outcome. This decision was instrumental in successfully steering the parties to settlement.”
