    “Bruce is extremely knowledgeable in commercial transactions.”
    “He's an effective negotiator.”


    "I treat every client’s concern as my own and strive to provide the best information and recommendation possible to enable a client to make a fully informed business decision. We try to gain a deep understanding of each client’s business and to never forget that while some engagements are transactional, when they come to conclusion, the client still has a business to run and we need to put the client in the best position to do so."
