“I have worked with Sklar Kirsh on more than 20 transactions and they always provide outstanding service, are consistently responsive, and possess strong legal and business knowledge. Protecting the client is their top priority, while they simultaneously appreciate the need to be flexible and fluid in a transaction. Sklar Kirsh brings a deep network of relationships and wealth of experience to each transaction. I especially appreciate their ability to look at a deal from both a legal perspective as well as an investor’s.”
