"It has been an absolute pleasure working with Best Best & Krieger. More specifically with Dan Kehr, who was instrumental in assisting us in drafting a purchase and sale agreement (PSA) for an important project of ours. Dan was extremely proactive and professional in his assessment of what we were needing accomplished, provided expert recommendations on key issues and verbiage within the PSA. His transparency and honesty throughout the whole process was exceptional, as well as, his acute attention to detail and quality of work provided. Dan went above and beyond the normal call of duty to help us with this massive undertaking which we are extremely thankful for. We look forward to using Dan and Best Best & Krieger again in the future." - JR Skala
