"I was very impressed with the support my family and I received from Steele Raymond throughout the sale process. They were exceptionally knowledgeable, efficient and dedicated to ensuring this complex deal was completed successfully."

David Cornell | BOFA International

“The way in which Steele Raymond approached and managed our sale was exemplary. As is to be expected, there were considerations and critical decisions to be made along the way, but we always felt comfortable that these were taken care of and communicated effectively by their legal teams. Having a lead partner who not only makes sure all the team delivers but also rolls his sleeves up was great.”
