"John Allison has a deep and broad expertise. He is confident enough to admit what he doesn't know and will access others at K & L for matters that aren't in his wheel-house. Mr. Allison is available 24/7 and will run through walls for our firm. He is very detail oriented but at the same time very pragmatic in his approach. In addition, he is very efficient and cost effective."
