Client Comments

"Todd Kegler is a solid M&A attorney with a commitment to responsiveness and service. Todd is able to provide balanced and thoughtful solutions to help us get to a deal."

"Todd Kegler is an excellent young business lawyer. Todd is cost effective and client-oriented, with a specialty in mid-size business acquisitions and dispositions."

-George Bennett, Jr.
Talisman Capital

"Despite its relatively small size, Todd Kegler's team refused to be outworked or outperformed by the large Boston and NYC firms we encountered on the various transactions Kegler Brown did for us. Todd is reasonable, organized, well-mannered under stress, and extremely responsive. We've used him for private company transactions up to $100 million dollars and he is an ideal attorney for these circumstances."
