Gap Intelligence, Inc.

Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, Good Value

“Nikki is such a huge part of gap intelligence that she is honestly thought more of as a co-worker than outside legal counsel. Nikki work has not only counseled the company’s strategic leaders in those rare times of legal needs, but has also helped iron out the small and large details of our most critical contracts. Nikki is leaned on to give counsel on our most strategic and important business contracts and decisions.

Nikki has been an invaluable adviser to gap intelligence, providing solid perspective on current business issues and assisting the company in various ways outside of legal counsel. Nikki’s vast web of contacts that span a wide spectrum of services – insurance, legal, banking, finance – have been equally as valuable to us as our business has grown and our needs have changed.

Nikki has been more than our legal adviser – she has helped grow our business.” May 26, 2010

“I have worked with Russ for many years across several projects. He has always provided excellent counsel and sound business advice on each. Over the years he has come to be a trusted advisor in the operations, sale of businesses and the development/financing of new ventures (a special area of his expertise).

Russ provides hands-on personal involvement for his clients. His easy going style brings fast and effective results, minimizing costs and maximizing outcome. I highly recommend Russ and consider him to be one of the most talented lawyers I know covering a wide variety of legal situations. He is extremely responsive and in the operation of a small or large business he is the first call I make when needing advise.

I am happy to provide a personal reference for Russ and am available to be contacted for any additional information.”May 30, 2009

Top qualities:Great Results, Personable, High Integrity

“While many attorneys have a firm that “practices” law, Russ’ firm masters law and business advice. Russ distinguishes himself from his peers by not only having a vey human approach to client relationships as a superb listener, but also the ability to “see” what the client sees. This allows him to formulate several considered recommendations with real world perspective and impact. Russ’ accomplishments are recognized by his legal peers and among other allied professionals, civic leaders and business owners and executives through his skills being nominated and elected in the San Diego Daily Transcript on more than one occassion over the years. An honest and compassionate soul, his firm offers the best and the brightest guidance where clients are assured they are obtaining high value for his reasonably priced legal services. A friend and colleague for about 20 years as a fellow Strategic Trusted Advisor Roundtable (“STAR”) founder, I endorse Russ with enthusiasm and without reservation.” October 22, 2010
