“Tom, … [we} thought you did a tremendous job in our case together — including at trial — among the best we’ve seen in every way but particularly how persuasive, charismatic and quick you were on the stand. We’re very much looking forward to continuing to work with you and your team.“ – Partner, Law Firm

When our client and co-counsel read the deposition transcript, they’ll know we made the right choice in working with you and your team. The days of preparation were all worthwhile.”
– Partner, Law Firm

“The Chancery Court has adopted your damages model absolutely, 100%, without reservation or modification, and over . . . [the opposing party’s] objections and efforts. . . . [The opposing expert] might as well have not shown up, for all the benefit he provided to . . . [his client]. You have my sincere thanks for everything, throughout a difficult and complex process. . . . [The Vice Chancellor] has, for all intents and purposes, made you the Court’s own damages calculation expert.”
– Partner, Law Firm
“I am disappointed that we won’t get to try our damages theory [due to the parties settling], but it served its purpose of driving a settlement that [our client] was happy with, so thank you. Thanks for all your work on this case. I enjoyed working with you all.”
– Senior Associate, Law Firm
“Doug provided outstanding analysis and testimony on a limited budget. We had an obstinate opposing counsel who provided limited relevant material, but Doug did well with what we had and developed a persuasive damages model. Trial had some unexpected twists and turns and Doug helped us focus our case as well as his testimony, providing outstanding testimony with limited practice. His calmness on cross-examination in the face of a bullying opposing counsel helped win over the jury and enabled us to achieve a successful verdict.” – Partner, Law Firm
“As this year comes to a close, I want to take a moment to say Thank You! I know that I thanked you both last April, but I have been meaning to send an email for a long time. Tom, I know you are a rock star and you deserve all of the kudos that you have received. I also want to say that you found a gem in Ryan. He is insightful, dedicated and dogged in his determination. He was an invaluable asset to our team. I still can’t believe he helped with legal research and briefs!” – Litigation Partner, Law Firm
“Collecting signatures on final settlement agreements! Your team’s assistance was quite helpful, especially given some of the peculiar damages issues in play.“ – Associate, Law Firm
