I am in the hedge fund industry and have been working with Noah Klarish for two decades now. He has proven time and again to be an invaluable resource. He has expertly and economically, created fund documents and operating agreements. He has also reviewed and crafted employment agreements, protecting his client's interests. If you are in the market for an attorney I highly recommend Noah Klarish.

- Simon

I have worked closely with Noah over the past 7 years. Noah’s legal counsel and know-how are without exception the best on the street. He is constantly thinking about legal exposure, business sense, and applicable real-life situations to prepare for. Noah is smart, personable, and always on top of his game. Noah is very accessible and is always diligent and quick to turn deliverables around. I have recommended Noah to several colleagues and will continue to do so.

- Naph

I’ve worked with Noah for over 10 years on over 20 different transactions spanning everything from direct loan originations to venture capital transactions to JV agreements and more in my role at two multi-family offices. Noah is highly commercial – for us he functions as an outsourced general counsel of sorts, I find this incredibly rare in most lawyers. In addition to his vision on big picture issues, he rolls up his sleeves and is immersed in reviewing, marking up and negotiating the deal documents to completion. He is clear about what he knows (a lot!) and will let you know when something is not in his wheelhouse. He is trustworthy and enjoyable to work with. I can’t recommend Noah highly enough.

- Nichole W. – Fund of Funds and Family Office

I have worked with Noah for nearly a decade. He helped me establish my fund, negotiate investor and employee contracts as well as assist me with compliance documentation and filings. Has an incredible wealth of industry knowledge which enables him to achieve the best deal for his clients. Noah is a fantastic listener and guide which really helped me prioritize my near and long-term interests. He's efficient and thoughtful. I would never enter into another client, employment agreement or other business law matter without his assistance.

- John T. – Hedge Fund and Portfolio Manager

Noah Klarish has been my lawyer for every important legal issue, problem, or opportunity I've had in my career at The New Yorker and subsequently. I created The Cartoon Bank and sold it to The New Yorker magazine with Noah's astute legal advice as well as his all-around smarts. When I left The New Yorker to establish Cartoon Collections LLC Noah was of course my go-to guy. Likewise, when I acquired CartoonStock and established my AI humor company it was Noah's guidance and expertise I sought. Noah's knowledge of relevant law and precedent never fails him but and combined with his knowledge of people he's the ideal guy to get a deal done.

- Bob M. – World renowned Cartoonist and cartoon related entrepreneur

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 S. - principal of Betzwood Capital, LLC

I’ve been Noah Klarish’s client since 2003 and a friend soon after that. I highly recommend Noah as a general counsel and I have to many of my friends. He can do it all and when he can’t he will recommend outstanding specialized lawyers in his network. Over the years Noah has handled for us trademarks, commercial leases, business contracts, dispute resolutions, capital raises, liquidity events and many negotiations with great success. As an added bonus he has been a solid sounding board for strategic business decisions. 5 star rating from me!

- Eric M. – Founder of Iconic Lifestyle Brand with large retail presence

Excellence and satisfaction come to one’s mind by the service and advice we have received for many years by Noah Klarish. Calm analysis, Pragmatic choices, Precise solutions, and creative flair is what you can expect from Noah. There is no padding or nonsense just an efficient pleasant and bespoke service from New York’s number 1 Consigliere.

- Steve D. – Principal – Broker-Dealer, Hedge Fund and real estate

I run an investment company and have worked with Noah for over 3 years on many different projects. He and his team have been consistent and very meticulous in drafting and commenting on a variety of legal documents and services, from simple entity formation to fund structure to acquisition of businesses and to a variety of complex financial contracts. Noah is very responsive, quick to turn around documents, has a high level of integrity, and his input is invaluable. When I have consulted him in areas outside his expertise, he is upfront to identify this and helpful in recommending colleagues or other lawyers to help. I would highly recommend Noah.

- Jonathan H. – Hedge Fund and Airline related businesses

I have been extremely impressed with Noah's level headed tenacity he approached my employment matters with. Noah has helped me negotiate two employment contracts and each time I genuinely felt like I had an advantage over my future employer having Noah work on my behalf. Moreover, I found him to treat my matters with the utmost importance, he constantly made himself available to discuss whatever questions or thoughts I had as we went through the process.

- Jeffrey M. – Portfolio Manager – Multi-Manager Platform

Our LLC, a 14 person partnership that owned a commercial property in Brooklyn, was referred to Noah by our property management company in 2014. I have felt very grateful for that introduction. I can only offer words of praise regarding Noah. We called upon Noah, on a frequent basis, on various matters ranging from our partnership, tenants, annual meetings, leases, etc. Noah always gave us sound and practical advice. In December, 2020, we sold the property and Noah was invaluable going through this difficult process. I wholeheartedly recommend Noah Klarish; I have every confidence in his knowledge, competence and winsome way!

- Miriam B. – Managing Member – Retail Property Ownership

Noah is a thorough professional. He has a deep understanding of securities laws and furthermore takes the time to research and stay abreast of the constantly evolving regulatory and legal landscape. He offers thoughtful and practical solutions to complex business problems. Always very responsive and conscientious, I would recommend his services strongly!

- Mayukh M. – Hedge Fund

We've been working with Noah for over 4 years and have really enjoyed the relationship. Noah has helped our firm in everything ranging from private fund formation (both hedge fund and private equity type funds) to compliance consulting. He has helped us structure and document complicated transactions with ease. He has deep industry knowledge and practical insights which he has leveraged to effectively guide us as we continue to grow. His quality of work continues to exceed our expectations. We unequivocally recommend Noah and his team!

- Jason G. – Principal – Hedge Fund and PE Funds.

I have worked with Noah and his team for five years and have been consistently impressed. From helping get our investment partnership off the ground, to keeping us up to date on changing regulations and to getting answers quickly for ad hoc projects. Noah has intricate knowledge of the laws and provides practical and useful advice. He is really on top of it all. I find Noah and team to be highly accessible and responsive, easy to work with and patient in explaining complex issues and regulations. Highly recommended.

- Daniel G. – Principal – Hedge Fund and Family Office

Noah has been a great business partner to our fund. He is responsive, practical and knowledgeable, and works with a proactive attitude of wanting to help me accomplish my business objectives. I would engage him again and have recommended him to others.

- Marshall S. – Principal – Hedge Fund and PE Fund

We have worked with Noah for more than 10 years. From launching our fund to managing recurring legal requirements, Noah has been a trusted partner offering thoughtful consultation and legal advice. We are grateful to have Noah and his team on our side.

- Dave A. – Principal – Hedge Fund

Hiring Noah helped me navigate a complicated agreement and he made the process simple and a stress free as possible. Great service, professional and friendly.

- Marc W. – Principal – Food brands

Noah has helped me with all stages of creating my company from formation to strategy as well as M&A activity. He’s been an invaluable partner and advisor along the way.

- Paul B. – High profile CEO of iconic lifestyle brand companies and industry consultant

Eric Hutner at Hutner Klarish has been our company’s primary lawyer for approximately ten years. During this time, Eric has handled many projects for us, from corporate contracts, to employee matters, to trademark issues, to mergers and acquisitions, to commercial matters, and more. He is very knowledgeable about all kinds of matters affecting a small business, quickly shows an understanding of the issues we have to deal with, is very capable, and is very responsive when we need him, especially when the timing is critical. The team at Nature’s Intent does not hesitate to bring Eric into early conversations on new projects given the tremendous value we place on his input. He is also very pleasant and a delight to work with!”

- Gloria S. - Chief Financial Officer at Nature’s Intent

I am so grateful that a friend recommended Noah Klarish when we were looking to find a regular outside lawyer. We wanted an excellent lawyer who worked more as a solo practitioner than a big firm team. Noah has been outstanding: expert, responsive, experienced, and practical. He does a great job understanding our business objectives and tailoring his advice and approach to each situation. He is remarkably quick and just a total pleasure to work with. We really rely on Noah and feel grateful to have his counsel.

- David S. – CEO – Family Office

Professional, courteous, knowledgeable, accessible, caring, successful … These are the words that immediately come to mind when I think about my experiences with Hutner Klarish. They have all the things that any business person should want in a law firm. With a complete hands-on approach, I feel the lawyers at Hutner Klarish always treat my business matters like a real priority. With their broad knowledge and a focus that is unmatched, we view Hutner Klarish as our best bet for a successful outcome.

- Michael C. - President & CEO - StreetWide Asset Recovery Group, Inc.

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.

- D. Graves - Managing Director El-Aleph 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 C. - Compliance executive (retired)

Crito Capital is a leading private placement firm headquartered in the U.S. with additional operations in England. Hutner Klarish has served as our company’s principal outside counsel for many years, with Eric Hutner taking the lead. Eric has advised us on U.S. regulatory matters (FINRA, SEC), but also on many aspects of business, including drafting and advising on contracts with customers and various other counterparties, business disputes, employment issues, trademark registration, to name a few. The legal services we receive from Eric are informed by the breadth of his knowledge and experience and his understanding of our needs as a company. And should something arise beyond the broad areas of his expertise, he knows enough to stand aside and help us select and work with other counsel. We could not be happier with the representation we receive from Eric Hutner and Hutner Klarish.

- Ted G. - CEO of Crito Holdings and Crito Capital

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 B. - CFA and Portfolio Manager for SF Capital Group and related hedge funds

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 W. - Investor

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, but they are also very responsive to all my legal needs in just about every facet of the securities business.

- Steve L. - Securities Professional, Boca Raton, Florida

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 M. - Cartoon Editor - The New Yorker Magazine

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.
