Client and peer testimonials:

“I've known Todd for many years through his excellent legal reputation and being on the other side of deals with him. He is as highly regarded by both me and the Columbus legal community as any other M&A attorney in the state. He is an excellent lawyer and advocate.”

“Todd is an excellent lawyer and a true gentleman in every sense of the word. I would recommend him as a referral in any appropriate matter in which my firm had a conflict, and I would be confident that the client would be well represented and pleased with the work and outcome.”

“I worked with Todd extensively on a couple of significant matters a few years ago and found him to be very knowledgeable, responsive, no-nonsense and very capable of representing his clients in the best possible way --- and geared to the goal of getting the deal done. I was very impressed and look forward to doing more transactions with him on the other side. I have great respect for his talents and for him personally.”

“Todd has an easy way about him. He is extraordinarily capable in his area of expertise, but blends this knowledge and creativity with an amicable personality. He works hard at being inclusive, and is always a gentlemen to his professional colleagues. Wonderful lawyer, fine person.”
