I have used Cairncross & Hempelmann while a venture capitalist, operating a $60 million U.S. early stage fund, as our primary deal counsel and completed over 70 private equity debt and equity financing transactions with the firm. I have also dealt with highly complex senior management and board issues, litigation issues and complex transactions on a global basis with their support. The truly remarkable thing about the firm is that they are ethical, have high integrity and work with me then and now with utmost responsiveness. I have in my career unfortunately encountered some of the top firms in other major cities who do not perform with the integrity and responsiveness of this firm. I frankly can’t recommend them highly enough for corporate and securities law matters, particularly in the technology venture arena. I have dealt with major firms in Silicon Valley; Los Angeles; Washington, DC; Houston; Portland, Oregon; and international firms, and Cairncross & Hempelmann stands out from the crowd.
