Client Quote
“This is our fourth completed acquisition working with Gary Bubb of RIW. He and his firm are exceptionally responsive in these very time and issue intensive periods and provide very high quality legal services both relating to the acquisition and deal financing along with tax, general corporate, and employment subjects.  Our counter parties often retain national firms but our counsel help us keep ball-control, and we find we get consistently superior value out of our engagement.  Consequently, Gary has been a key contributor to our success.”
