    WHAT CLIENTS SAY

    "I trust Chuck and the strength of his M&A experience."
    "He has access to strong resources in a broad set of areas so he can advise us on unexpected issues when those arise."


    MY CLIENT PHILOSOPHY

    "I would say it comes down to experience, hard work, maturity, the avoidance of hubris, extreme attentiveness to client needs and, most importantly, a strong desire to help clients achieve their business objectives and to drive solutions to client problems. I find clients are especially appreciative of lawyers who can differentiate between real risks and theoretical ones."
