"Louis is the best advisor we have had - he really looks after our company like he is a partner/shareholder in it. His advice is not just legally sound but commercial as well. As a founder, his negotiation has saved us a lot of trouble in bad times. I would highly recommend him for exit/funding."

Founder, CxO

"For corporate work, M&A expert Louis Glass, who has particular experience in technology, internet and e-commerce transactions, is recommended."
