Client News


We are thrilled to have assisted Veris in their succession planning and new partner deal structuring.  Here is what our client had to say about us:

“Veris has worked with Corey and his team for over 5 years. Over the last 18 months, Corey led Veris’ five founders through a succession planning process including full updating of our operating agreements and partner documents. This successfully laid the foundation to admit the first new partners since company founding. Corey was great at both the business and governance issues and, frankly, the “letting-go” issues of the founders. We have great operating documents for the next 7 years and 3 wonderful new partners.”
