CFO in SaaS
Louis is my first call when I need any legal opinion in the Silicon Valley. I have worked with a number of law firms and attorneys in the Valley, no one come close to his knowledge and practice of a variety of corporate legal matters in VC-backed private companies. Not only he is knowledgeable, details oriented, spot on on his predictions of how each scenario will play out, he is also great with people, from founders to legal teams, and generous in offering his time and help. I am privileged to know and work with him.
I started working with Louis in early 2013 and he has been a trusted colleague and mentor ever since. Over the years working with Louis, I have learned how to problem-solve, negotiate and listen to clients with empathy. Louis is extremely dedicated to his clients and has a passion for helping businesses, ranging from startups to global conglomerates, I have not seen in other partners. His 24/7 availability and natural ability to immediately drill down and execute on goals makes him the go-to advisor to many companies, investors, and colleagues.
