Client Comments

"Toby Myerson is an exceptional lawyer in all contexts including M&A, corporate, and financing law. We recently executed a highly complicated M&A trade that involved legal advice on a "take private", which included both traditional bank financing and a highly negotiated minority investment from a financial sponsor. Toby was essential in advising both his corporate client as well as the investment banking team to think through a variety of issues on the M&A trade as well as the inter-relation of the respective financings. In addition to this specific transaction, Toby and his team often act as a critical sounding board on various legal topics being considered by our firm. His advice over the years has proven to be invaluable and we would recommend him to any client with the utmost confidence."
