“I can’t bestow enough praise upon this group of attorneys who contributed to the work we’re doing in this space,” said Shawn Stigler, Co-Chair of Venture Best. “It’s incredibly impressive to see the firms we’re stacked against and it’s indicative of the reputation we’re continuing to build. I’m thrilled with the results we’ve produced, and I’m confident our team will continue to contribute at the highest levels for our clients.”
