He is one of my most important business advisors.” Janeen Gelbart, co-founder of Indiggo Associates LLC, a provider of leadership training platforms goes on to say, “He helped me raise my first million dollars of investment. He and his colleagues at Shulman Rogers help me manage the legal and business issues around investors, employees, alliances, vendors, and intellectual property. He has been a true partner in starting my business and helping me to make it successful.”
