“As a securities industry professional, I have worked with the partners of Hutner Klarish for over 15 years. From serving as the General Counsel at the broker-dealer where I worked, to handling FINRA arbitrations, to providing representation in FINRA and SEC investigations, to preparing private placement memoranda in numerous asset classes pertaining to both debt and equity, to investor communications and marketing materials, Hutner Klarish is unique in that they provide the knowledge, expertise and resources of a major law firm with the personal attention and relationships of a boutique law firm. Not only are the lawyers at Hutner Klarish extremely good at what they do, they are very responsive to all my legal needs in just about every facet of the securities business.”
-Steve Levenson, Securities Professional, Boca Raton, Florida

“We’ve used Noah and Hutner Klarish for several fund formations, deal negotiations, as well as for our ongoing legal advice, and are very pleased with the results. Noah combines a thorough understanding of the current legal environment with the practical business realities for emerging hedge fund managers today. His expertise and perspective have been crucial in complex negotiations, keeping things on track and making us aware and not backing down where important. We’ve always felt that he’s kept our firm’s interests at the forefront and has represented and defended our interests well in deal negotiations. We’re very happy with the level of attention and responsiveness that we’ve received from Hutner Klarish—which cannot be understated due to the time and attention sensitive nature of the deals we’ve been involved with. Their work on the document side has been very current with today’s legal environment with outstanding attention to detail.”
-David Sung, principal of Betzwood Capital, LLC

“Eric Hutner and I worked together at the same brokerage firm for many years. When we moved on in our careers, I always knew I would call on Eric for his help when the situation arose. We met up again years later and I was not at all disappointed when Eric came through for me and my company in a very big way. He and his colleagues sort through simple and complex issues alike, and always find the right way to handle each and every problem.”
-Linda Chudnoff, Compliance executive (retired)

“As a start-up firm focused on complex, specialized alternative assets, we needed a combination of the efficiency and attention of a boutique, broad expertise in securities and finance law, and the ability to apply these to atypical circumstances. Noah Klarish delivered all three excellently: he rapidly came up to speed on our asset class, folded its idiosyncrasies into our documentation quickly and pragmatically, and gave us the benefit of his experience as a sounding board for our business arrangements.”
-Philip Siller, Co-CEO, BroadRiver Asset Management, LLC

“Life can get complicated, especially the legal part of it. Those complications can lead to side effects like anxiety and depression. But they don’t have to if you have the legal team of Hutner Klarish in your corner. Sometimes I still get anxious and depressed, usually about the Yankees, but never about anything legal thanks to them.”
-Bob Mankoff, Cartoon Editor, The New Yorker Magazine

“I retained Noah Klarish and his firm to review, negotiate, and scrutinize a very significant and complex business transaction involving a complicated real estate portfolio investment in New York City. The window of opportunity on the deal was closing and I needed a quick response. Noah dropped everything, advised me on the soundness of the deal, and quite frankly, didn’t gloss over the potential pitfalls. He reviewed, negotiated and re-negotiated until the proposed transaction was air tight. The level of professionalism Noah displayed was second to none.”
-Ronald J. Weinberger, Investor

“We used Hutner Klarish in the formation of two hedge funds and also in negotiating terms for a private investment where we were the de facto lead investor. In each engagement, Noah and his team were always reachable, communicative in where we stood in the work process, and met deadlines. For me, these are imperatives for any professional services our business utilizes that are often not fulfilled. Noah and his team surpassed our high expectations. In the private investment, Noah was helpful in the negotiation and suggested modifications to terms that improved our economic outcome.”
-Alan Benson, CFA and Portfolio Manager for SF Capital Group and related hedge funds

“Anyone who is launching a hedge fund and is looking for an experienced, effective, and personable attorney should speak to Noah Klarish. His expertise in creating formation documents was apparent on the first draft read-through and was highlighted for me when a legally-savvy investor commented on the high quality of the documents. What I find most unique about Noah, though, is his ability to dispense legal advice simultaneously with practical situational advice for every negotiation or potential conflict. He stays focused on helping my firm achieve its goals, and his coordination with me on resolving issues and negotiations has impressed me every time. I cannot imagine a better attorney to help a hedge fund manager grow his or her business.
