Bernie Vogel - Testimonials
Committed to delivering "Answers at the Speed of Business", Silicon Valley Law Group assembled a team of corporate and business attorneys and staff that enabled its client, Soy Vay Enterprises, Inc. to be successfully acquired by a publicly traded company by December 31, 2011, a mere three (3) weeks from its engagement. The team of Bernard J Vogel, III, Karl-Heinz Lachnit, and Lucy Ross negotiated the acquisition agreement; assisted, completed and timely delivered the necessary due diligence requirements; addressed issues of concern to the satisfaction of buyer and its attorneys; and facilitated the closure of the transaction prior to the 2011 year-end.
Eddie Scher, President/Owner of Soy Vay Enterprises, Inc., was delighted with the success of the closing, stating'I approached Bernie Vogel with Silicon Valley Law Group to help complete the acquisition and all of the due diligence required for the transaction of selling my company. I met with Bernie and his associate Karl-Heinz and informed them that I wanted to close this deal before the end of the calendar year, which was a mere 18 days away. Bernie and Karl-Heinz worked laboriously to get all necessary documents together as well as protect my interests. I was extremely happy with how they jumped onboard to help accomplish a smooth and quick transaction while at the same time making sure everything was taken care of correctly.

"When AutoReturn, a venture-funded San Francisco startup focused on the municipal towing industry nationwide, was choosing a law firm we did so based on a typical set of criteria. The criteria included such things as firm resume, breadth of experience across different disciplines, firm size, and chemistry with our client partner. Our legal needs ranged from deciding on the right company structure to developing investor documents to putting the right governance in place for what could quickly, upon being awarded a single contract, become a cash flow positive $15MM annual revenue company. We chose Silicon Valley Law Group (SVLG).
"SVLG has been very responsive and has provided excellent legal guidance throughout our development. While SVLG's legal services have been excellent, the scope of SVLG's impact on our business goes well beyond their role as our counsel. SVLG has acted as a real business partner in the growth of our company. SVLG not only has provided introductions to banking and investment resources that are well matched to our needs, SVLG has coached us on our approach and has helped us close key deals. AutoReturn, in no small part due to SVLG's efforts, is now a going concern with bright prospects for the future. We expect SVLG will continue to play a key role as we grow."

"I expected legal competence from SVLG and they delivered on that expectation. But they went beyond my expectations in two important ways. First, they quickly immersed in the business situation and understood our objectives in a way that improved their continuing support and guidance to our activities. Second, they had an aura of calm in the midst of the storm, which had a contagious and favorable impact on the process of negotiating a complex deal. It was a pleasure to work with such a fine team of dedicated professionals."
