TESTIMONIALS

  • “As a small business owner, I have used Ladd Mark in a variety of capacities over the time that I have known him.  He has helped me through the complex issues of both disposing of and acquiring a business.  At all times during both transactions (and everything that comes up in between), Ladd exemplified the legal competence and professionalism, which I have come to expect from all of my dealings with the staff at Burr Forman. Ladd combines his broad knowledge of legal issues with prompt, courteous service and sincere empathy for a business owner that is truly overwhelmed with the density of transactions.  His communication skills kept me aware of where I stood during transactions.  Ladd has definitely helped me through some difficult situations, and I consider him a friend.”
