"John Loder is simply one of the most intelligent lawyers I have ever met. His experience is extremely broad and deep in the investment management field, and he combines legal expertise with acute business acumen and risk assessment. He is respected among his peers as a leader in investment management law, and his advice is valued as much by management as it is by independent trustees. Aside from being an excellent listener and articulate speaker, John can quickly synthesize facts and law, and provide practical, actionable legal advice. John has impeccable integrity. He also possesses the type of diplomatic skills that come only with years of experience. I would wholeheartedly and equally recommend John to both independent trustees and management of mutual fund companies."
