What Ben's clients say:
From my first conversation with Ben it was clear he was knowledgeable on the legal issues at play and would be prompt with his support, which was important as time was truly of the essence in the negotiation. Despite the time difference between Maine and the UK, he made himself available for calls with our team and made the revisions we needed expeditiously. We speedily closed on the deal with all the terms we needed nailed down cleanly. I would highly recommend Ben for any contract matter in the EU. He was exactly what we needed.
