Terri DiPaolo

"Terri and I were on opposite sides of a negotiation. She demonstrated acute business acumen and an understanding of both her client's position and ours. She got the best for her client but in an expeditious responsive manner that also worked well for us. Terri found practical workable solutions to issues. On a personal level, Terri was also incredibly pleasant to deal with throughout the negotiation even when we were at potentially deal breaking issues. This always makes a negotiation much more bearable!"

"I was fortunate to follow in Terri's footsteps at Lionsgate. She managed an unmanageable workload and made my transition smooth and painless. I continued to work with Terri as outside counsel, and found her to be an innovative thinker, possessed of an extraordinary work ethic, and very importantly, passionate about her work. Hire her before your adversary does!
