"The K&L Gates practice group has proven to have a superior value-to-cost ratio, and the cost-effectiveness may be credited to the firm for setting reasonable rates; however, the efficiency of John Howell as our lead partner was critical in driving this value. We have worked with John on several major transactions and we know the exceptional quality he brings to client representation in IT outsourcing. The major lesson from last year's law firm review is that this quality also comes at a great value."

"John Howell at K&L Gates has truly unmatched expertise, delivers solid value for the money, and provides amazingly responsive service."
