They cover all the bases, and in all my dealings with them, I have never been blind sided by an issue. They provide clear options, and spend the time to explain all the cons and pros of each. Low turn over. I never had a team member leave in the middle of an assignment. Highly innovative. Whenever were were limited by the current legal setup, they were very creative in identifying alternative ways to achieve the same result. International perspective and multi jurisdictional experienced. My work usually spans multiple countries, and they have been extremely effective in managing the entire spectrum of our work across multiple geographies.’

With Dajani and associates, the team I dealt with had strong grasp of the Commercial side of the business. This has been extremely valuable to us – Always available to respond quickly.
