Scott Milburn the best M&A attorney I could have ever hoped for. Our deal went back and forth many times and Scott always made sure our responses to the buyer were turned around very quickly. This helped our negotiations a great deal as we were much faster than them which gave us the time to review every detail of our deal and not have to focus on checking up to make sure our attorney caught everything on the legal side. He made sure our back sides were covered, but also put in the extra effort required to understand us and our deal so he could give deeper advice beyond the legal documents. I’ll be using Scott Milburn exclusively all deals going forward.
