    DAVID FROST - ARCHITECT

    I worked with Mark Harley and his team at Boss on a recent sale of a business. It was my first business sale and I really didn’t have a clue about the process or contracts. Mark took me through the process  step-by-step and worked seamlessly with my accountant to make the sale as simple and stress-free as it could be. 

    Mark was extra helpful when we had a few bumps in the road and patiently answered all my stupid questions… even when I asked the same question a few times. As well as being easy to work with, Mark was responsive, efficient, and always on time to meet deadlines and – most importantly – we closed the deal. 

    I’m now launching two new businesses and Mark and Boss will be a permanent fixture on my “dream team” of advisers and I will gladly recommend him to anyone in need of  legal services. Thanks Mark and the Boss crew!
