Testimonial: "GKB handled a complicated assignment in the sale of two businesses. GKB went above and beyond in terms of effort and diligence, and most importantly they brought a high level of expertise that allowed us to work through the many challenges faced in order to achieve the desired results. The entire team stayed fully engaged in the process until both deals closed. We simply could not have asked for more in terms of GKB's effort, professionalism, commitment, and results."
