"Craig de Recat and the law firm of Manatt Phelps & Phillips have provided outstanding advice on a variety of litigation and transactional projects.
Craig's counsel has always added significant value to our analysis of the risks and benefits of any given course of action. He has crafted the scope and depth of his representation to our particular needs, corporate culture, and budgetary goals for each particular project.
His creativity has led to unique and favorable settlements, including the use of insurance proceeds received from a difficult carrier. He is an excellent and very well-spoken communicator who brings clarity to our internal discussions as well as a forceful advocate with opposing counsel and before the courts.
There is not another lawyer I know with whom I have a greater trust and respect.
We are fortunate to have the counsel of Craig de Recat.
"Mr. de Recat is inspiring. He is a level headed, thought provoking, trustworthy, brave, reliable, and loyal legal counsel of superior abilities.
Craig also owns a farm tractor and knows how to use it. It is very hard to not like a guy who works hard for fun (he also works hard when it is not so much fun).
"Craig has always made the extra effort to understand the Company's operations and business interests. Beyond Craig's superb legal expertise, his in-depth knowledge of the Company, honesty, and trustworthiness have ensured his representation is cost effective and results in the best possible outcome. I have worked with numerous attorneys across the country and I have not met any who have demonstrated the passion for the work as much as Craig. He is truly one of the best and he has been influential to our success."
