Recognition

“Bianca’s ‘down to earth’ approach and willingness to bring the parties together to discuss alternative options was certainly appreciated and I would welcome the opportunity to work with her in the future.”
Client Testimony: Founding Cluster Participant

I cannot speak highly enough of the service provided by the team at Piper Alderman, and would specifically call out Simon and Bianca for their efforts. The team showed unwavering commitment, patience and flexibility throughout what was a landmark transaction for the region and in turn for our investors.
