A Few Testimonials
“Jeff spent extra time to review the supporting evidence in detail and quickly put an action plan together. Within a month he had the ex-husband attorney to agree waiving whatever the fees before. His negotiation skill is beyond excellence. Meanwhile he was helping and educating me how divorce negotiations work. Working with him, he took off a lot of the stress from my shoulders, I started to be able put myself together, so I could think clearly what kind life I want in the future… He helped me to think what I can give up to exchange for things that are more important to me. I am very thankful to settle the case without a trial. I came to a reasonable asset division, parenting agreement and child custody. Jeff is compassionate, honest, well experienced and highly skilled. If you have a complexity case, Jeff is the one I will highly recommend.”
“Heather Baer was thoughtful, thorough, responsive, and persistent. She proved to be a valuable and valued strategic partner as we entered negotiations with my previous employer. Although historically intractable, this employer succumbed to the presentation of our highly persuasive position, ultimately agreeing to a severance three times that of its original offer. Further, we reached settlement in fewer than two month – a relief, as I had feared a protracted battle.”
“Mr. Fitch represented our company in a complex international arbitration case involving the unlawful termination of a license agreement by a listed USA corporation. This settled and included a multi-million dollar payment to us. Jonathan Fitch initially comes across as a quiet and considered individual. He listens, absorbs detail and opinions, and then makes convincing recommendations and decisions that get right to the heart of the issues. In Jonathan Fitch, I saw all the key qualities we needed in one person without the other difficulties. For this arbitration Jonathan Fitch came up against top arbitration lawyers, this was a hard fought issue on both sides involving very material sums of money. The result shows simply how good he is.”
“Steven Gurdin represented me in a contentious and drawn-out divorce that involved complicated assets of significant value… For his excellent help in achieving a favorable settlement, I thank Steve. I am pleased to recommend him very, very highly to anyone who faces the complicated and painful issues of divorce.”
Kurt Kusiak is our primary counsel in the United States for litigation matters and disputes. He is a skilled trial attorney and a trusted advisor to the company on a variety of legal matters. As a multi-national corporation with over $1B in revenue, 10,000 employees and offices in more than 50 countries, we frequently face complex disputes and claims that have the potential to distract the company our from our business priorities. In addition to his legal acumen, Kurt understands our business as well as the bio/pharma industry in which we compete. It is this combination of trial skills and his business savvy that separates Kurt from other lawyers. He appreciates the importance of putting our company in the best position to resolve disputes and reduce the disruption to our business and employees. This quality work is performed at a cost that is reasonable and significantly less than the big law firms. I highly recommend Kurt and the team at Fitch Law Partners LLP.
