Client Comments

"Kevin is effective not only because of his legal acumen, but because he understands the working relationships and dynamics of his clients as well. We know we can rely on his advice because he's always thinking several steps ahead, knowing how we operate and knowing what our expectations are in any deal. We enjoy working with him and appreciate his sage counsel."

"I have always appreciated working with Mr. Lewis. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. Furthermore, he is timely and reliable, and he makes himself available around the clock (which is very important when assistance is required with securities and corporate governance matters). He also has a great personality and sense of humor, so he is enjoyable to work with, even in high-pressure situations."

"Kevin has assisted us over the years on a broad range of topics, including corporate governance and securities law issues. Kevin and the rest of the talented lawyers at Vinson & Elkins we work with on a regular basis have always provided expert, common-sense advice on a timely basis."
