Gail and Philip did an exemplary job and steered me around the potential pitfalls, completing the whole process in only a few weeks. Later in 2020, at the height of the pandemic, they handled the sale of our parent company. I would wholeheartedly recommend them.
We have worked with Gardner Leader on numerous company sales. With competence in legal M&A and an in-depth understanding of our industry, they successfully saw us to completion. The M&A process, managed by Philip Humphreys and Gail Vallis, ran very smoothly, with excellent communication skills.
