"Mark is a rare commodity - a transaction attorney who actually understands algebra. He is very attentive; he under-commits and over-performs. He has exceptional problem-solving abilities. He is an advocate for his clients while being fair-minded in negotiations. Mark is unflappable; he doesn't wilt under pressure. "

-Robert Cowin
Gerneral Partner
Audubon Capital Fund

"Mark Fulmer has been a great asset to our company since we retained his firm over three years ago. During that time, we have completed two mergers and are in the process of completing another. Mark's advice has been timely and beneficial. I never have difficulty in getting in touch with Mark. He generally answers his own line and if he is busy, he responds to his voice mail promptly, as he does with his emails. We have developed a wonderful relationship over this period and I would not hesitate to recommend Mark or his firm to any prospective client. I would like to add that Mark is extremely intelligent, but is able to communicate with my lay Board members in a clear and effective manner. Mark is also a good quarterback and is able to coordinate the activities of his other firm members in a way that avoids confusion and unnecessary delays during merger negotiations and other time-sensitive matters."
