“I couldn’t have been more pleased with the savvy advice and results-driven leadership that Shulman Rogers provided in a critical two-pronged deal for us.  Scott Museles masterfully quarterbacked a tricky and ever-changing financing round to raise our acquisition financing.  At the same time, Aaron Ghais and Keith Marshall brought strong judgment, creativity, and a collaborative approach to spearhead the completion of an industry-changing acquisition.  I’d happily refer this team to anyone who asked! “

“We went into a sizeable M&A transaction knowing a whole lotta nothin’.  Well, that’s not entirely true – we knew the legal work and negotiations were going to be complicated, labor-intensive, and stressful at times.  The deal was all of those, but we realized quickly that we were in good hands with Aaron Ghais, Felix Kushnir, and others on the M&A team at Shulman Rogers.  They knew their way around the issues and provided advice that reflected judgment honed over many years of deal-making.  We appreciated their responsiveness and collaborative approach.  We always felt that we were their most important client, and we highly recommend the Shulman Rogers team to anyone looking for stellar M&A counsel.”
