Cliff represented me in my capacity as the Trustee of two revocable trusts in a complex litigation matter involving over $10 million in real estate and other assets across multiple family businesses. He helped me navigate the complex issues and secure an outstanding result. The veteran arbitrator said it was one of the most complex shareholder disputes he had ever seen.
