Clients praise his ‘mixture of the legal depth you would expect with a lot of commercial insight.’” “According to sources, he ‘knows his stuff inside and out’ and is credited for his strong technical skills.” In their 2014 edition, The Best Lawyers in America recognized Eric as a leading M&A lawyer in New York.
