GREAT presentation! I expected it to be dry, but Mr. Calder did a great job of conveying the drama, risk & opportunities involved in navigating the anti-trust review process of M&A's.

Jeff D.

An area of law in which I'll never practice, but a great presentation: clear, understandable, informative.

William J.

This presentation was outstanding, both clear and well-organized. I also like the level of detail in the presentation slides. Too often, the slides are reduced to general bullet points that do not convey much information. In this presentation, however, the slides were clear and informative, with useful practical details. As mentioned, outstanding overall.
