Thank goodness for Jeremy. I needed an experienced lawyer who dealt with complex operating and services agreements (including dealing with intellectual property terms), revenue sharing, and filing for trademarks. He definitely was focused on my best interests and took the time to explain everything in layman’s terms. He presented different contractual options with pros and cons to each approach. Jeremy was extremely efficient, produced quality results, always had a positive demeanor and was cost effective. I highly recommend Jeremy.”

- Laurie, a corporate executive and entrepreneur who launched a mobile game app start-up with a marketing and development company partner, Chicago, IL, January 2014

As the founder of a small manufacturing firm, I needed help navigating through a difficult buyout negotiation. I was intrigued by the small business expertise advertised on the Gibson Law Firm web site. I knew that finding an attorney via the Web was unconventional and perhaps a bit risky. But when I spoke with Jeremy Gibson, I immediately knew I had made the right decision. Within a short span of 3 months, Jeremy successfully negotiated the sale of my company shares along with a multi-year employment agreement that set me on a new career path. Looking back on it, my association with Jeremy Gibson was a life changing event and I couldn’t be happier with the end result. I highly recommend Jeremy Gibson to anyone looking for help with personal business matters that require expert guidance.

I'm a small business owner and I had the pleasure of working with Jeremy Gibson on some business documents that are crucial to the commercialization of our health care products. Jeremy's experience in a broad range of industries and types of legal cases helped him quickly understand our business and his advice was effective. Although Jeremy had a long history of representing large clients, he was very responsive and easy to work with. His high quality of work, friendly approach and reasonable fee schedule makes him an ideal legal counsel for small business as well. I would love to work with Jeremy again in the future.
