In The Words Of Our Clients

We have been working with Paul Ellis for several years and have found his common sense, insightful and reasoned approach in a variety of legal areas to be of great value. We are always amazed at Paul’s ability to absorb quickly the nuances of a particular situation and arrive at an effective legal strategy to move forward. The expertise of Paul and his associates has been invaluable in drafting well-designed agreements that protect the best interest of our organizations. We always feel it gives us a great advantage to have Paul Ellis Law Group in our corner.

Bob Stern, President, Projects in Knowledge, Inc. and At Point of Care, LLCM&A and General Corporate

I was pleased to be able to work with the Paul Ellis Law Group attorneys in connection with the merger of a division of my company with another company in a similar line of business. This was not an easy deal as there was a lot of complexity in some of the provisions, it was heavily-negotiated and had significant time pressure. Throughout, the PELG team was absolutely on top of all of the issues and was super-responsive. Their expertise really showed through in identifying the unintended consequences of provisions that were initially proposed by the business people and then proposing alternative solutions in an effort to get the deal done. They were aggressive advocates when needed, but were able to dial it back to find a compromise when appropriate. I would certainly work with PELG again on a similar deal and I continue to rely on them for general corporate matters.

Christopher DeSantis, CEO, RICGM&A and General Corporate

We've worked with Paul and his team ever since our startup first incorporated, and his services were invaluable in every stage of our company -- from the initial organization through to fundraising, stock issuance and everything else. He understands the challenges facing young companies and brings the knowledge, the experience and, above all, the personal involvement that makes such a difference. You get the sense that he really cares about your success.

Daniel Gelenter, CEO, Dittach LLCFormation and Financing

We have had the utmost pleasure of working with the Paul Ellis Law Group. As a non-US company looking to secure crowdfunding from US investors, PELG has been instrumental in getting us acquainted with US regulations, corporate law and compliance issues. Besides handling all legal work around our successful crowdfunding raise, PELG has helped us with various corporate governance issues ranging from shareholders agreements to employee options. Their attention to detail yet swift feedback and handling of matters has enabled us to move forward at the accelerated pace that was often required.

Haver Järveoja, COO, Wolfprint 3DFinancing and General Corporate

Paul and the team of attorneys he works with are quite simply the best. Every person we have worked with at the Paul Ellis Law Group has been bright, creative, and experienced. They are chess players – they are able to look at the entire board and foresee potential issues and recommend actions to guard against them. They are careful, they think through each move and see how it might affect future moves.

Paul and his team have created tremendous value for our company by making sure we protected our IP at a crucial time and making sure that our formation documents protected the integrity and continued viability of the Company in the event of co-founder turmoil (which came to pass). At the time, these measures seemed like overkill. Now we know better. My partner and I have sheepishly admitted to others that we love our lawyers – we do.
