Navigating the complexities of the deal so professionally, confidently and graciously (especially during the rollercoaster 2020 has been for the world) is a testament to the expertise of the LegalVision team. Jill and Sarah genuinely went above and beyond for us to close this round and we look forward to working with LegalVision on many more things to come.”
