    I've worked with David on several technology and outsourcing related projects over the last several years. He provided my company with legal support as outside counsel and previously supported me on many projects as inside counsel at another company. In both capacities he provided a great level of service, knowledge and the ability to help negotiate the appropriate contractual agreement for the given technology deal or service engagement. I would highly recommend him.

    In my role as Chief Operating Officer at Hartford Investment Management, I worked with Dave in his role as counsel for Hartford Financial Services. Dave was one of the few attorneys that understood our business and would craft legal opinions that worked for us without any risk. I was so impressed with Dave that I help recruit him to our company to support our investment initiatives. I would highly recommend Dave to any and all clients.

    I was a CIO at a large insurance company with many contracts with outside software providers. I worked with Dave through several deals with these providers. These deals were for services or use of their software. Dave was excellent to work with. He provided excellent council regarding how we could negotiate the best deal. This can be difficult, at times the business is very short sighted and just wants the deal. Dave always made sure we understood the risks versus the rewards. In end it worked.
