For a more in-depth understanding of our work, we have provided a few Representative Matters on our website. Some of these examples demonstrate our ability to handle complex matters while others provide the scope and depth of our capabilities. The list of Representative Matters is not comprehensive of all the work we do. They represent a sampling. If you are unable to find an example of a transaction that reflects your particular need, please contact Jeffrey Goldberg at for more information.
