Martha Dwyer represented us in the sale of our software business to a Fortune 500 firm. She is highly capable, detail-oriented, creative, diligent, responsive, and easy to work with. She did a great job balancing posture with diplomacy during tough negotiations. She also brought in highly talented associates specializing in taxation and litigation, as we needed to consider complex tax aspects and enforceability of certain legal language. I wholeheartedly recommend Ms. Dwyer for all general business legal matters, and certainly for M&A requirements.
