“Dan, I have attached the arbitration award which we received yesterday afternoon. Insofar as your head-to-head against Opposing Expert is concerned, the score is now Lesser 1, Opposing Expert 0. Of the $4,127,000 in damages to which Opposing Expert testified, the arbitration panel awarded the following amount: $0. This is the legal equivalent of a first round knockout by Lesser of Opposing Expert. A left hook followed by a devastating right uppercut, and on the canvas he went. Way to go Champ! This one has to go on your resume.”

“I have always been impressed with Dan Lesser’s knowledge and expertise which I have relied upon many times. For many years Dan was a featured speaker at our annual two day event "How to Open a Restaurant -- and Make it Last". His blunt discussion on how a restaurant’s success has little to do with food, and much to do about real estate, was thought provoking and a crowd pleaser."
