-Michael Ettinger
Senior Vice President & General Counsel
Henry Schein, Inc.

"Steve's firm has been outside General Counsel to our company for the past 24 years. Steve is primarily a corporate transactional attorney. He has personally represented our company in a number of significant legal matters over the last 15 years, including securities offerings, acquisitions, and SEC matters. He is smart, responsive, and pragmatic. As the senior partner at his firm in charge of servicing our account, he has always staffed our matters with the most qualified lawyers at his firm. He always works very hard to achieve an optimal result for our company."

-Gene Wexler
Senior Vice President, General Counsel
Ascena Retail Group, Inc.

"Steve Kirshenbaum has been our primary corporate and securities contact for the past three years. Steve's stand-out qualities include his responsiveness, thoughtfulness, intelligence, and easy accessibility; he makes us feel important, even when he's knee deep in work for other clients. Steve brings an innate "business intelligence" and practicality to his advice - a rare quality at many law firms. He speaks the concise language of Board members and senior executives, and brings a calm assurance to the thorniest of issues. Whenever a serious corporate or securities matter comes up, my first instinct is to call Steve and seek his wise counsel."

-Jonathan Greenberg
Vice President, General Counsel & Secretary
United Industrial Corporation

"Steve has represented our group in relation to several acquisitions in the U.S. In our view, he ranks up there with the very best external lawyers we have used throughout the world. He is a technical expert and strong negotiator who is very business focused and whose client service ethic is second to none."
