I’ve had the opportunity to complete a dozen debt and equity transactions with Mike and Peter over the past ten years and value their financial and business insight. They bring innovative ideas and fresh thinking to each of their deals, and helped structure both debt and joint venture transactions that exceeded our expectations. Above all, we respect them and their firm as trustworthy advisors who are focused on their clients and their needs.
