“I work predominately with David Rosenthal. He is outstanding in that he is always reachable, reliable and ready to provide workable solutions on the spot. He has an outstanding ability to find creative solutions and never shies away from entering uncharted territory and be the pioneer on expressing a legal view. He is extremely easy to work with and his advice is always clear and on the point.”
"Beyond his specific expertise in TMT which he can bring to our topic where needed (which is a greenfield topic, probably a 'frist'), he stands out with hands-on pragmatism in solving problems (vs. commenting on them)."
