Tom, Carmel Valley

Barry Harrow has served as my attorney for the last 20 years, including during the 14 years from the time I launched my company, Adams Media Research, in 1993, through its sale and my employment with the buyer in 2007. During that time he very ably handled the original incorporation, consulting agreements (and disputes when they arose), employment disputes, tax issues, the creation of a full package of estate-planning documents for me and my wife, and most impressively the year-long negotiation of the company-sale agreement and my employment agreement with the buyer. In the latter complex negotiation, he not only used his very sharp eye to spot problems in the contract drafts, but was also able to creatively develop solutions to some of the most intractable issues…a job very well done.
