Very Good Counsel
Terry has assisted me with possible purchases of two businesses – with one going to completion. I sincerely appreciate not only Terry’s legal guidance, but his views and experience as a small business owner. There were multiple instances where I needed Terry to walk me through (in very detailed form) what each of step of the process entailed, the risks and opportunities, as well as his own opinion on what he would do. Terry was never overtly directive in his advice, but I always felt fully aware of the pros and cons of any decision. I am lucky to have found Terry and he continues to be my trusted lawyer/advisor today.
Our company has been using Terry Gerbers’ services for 12 years. Terry prepares all of our clients’ operating/member agreements, resolutions, amended agreements, and any other legal documents related to buying/selling companies and mergers. Terry always acknowledges every e-mail I send him in a short amount of time. All documents are prepared and returned very quickly. I am very pleased with everything he does for us. I would highly recommend him!
