Forrest is superb as an attorney par excellence. He has an eye for the big picture while not ignoring the little details. His opinion is thoughtful, practical and devoid of legalese. Forrest has a sound knowledge of the law, especially general corporate – commercial law, licensing, deal structure and litigation management. He is skilled in reviewing complex contracts, master service agreements (MSAs), equipment leases, statements of work and related change orders. It was an absolute delight to work with Forrest. He remains a top choice when we need a sound legal mind to bounce ideas off, including help with our US legal work.
