“Max served as our local counsel in connection with a significant contract dispute litigated in the Michigan state courts. In addition to serving in the traditional local counsel role, he was instrumental in developing a winning strategy.  As outside general counsel to our client, I was very pleased to have Max on the team and would absolutely work with Max again.”
