“I engaged Ron Wood as counsel to a special committee of a publicly-traded U.S. company. He oversaw foreign and domestic investigations and advised the special committee on the restatement of several years of financial statements as well as issues potentially related to FCPA. He grasped the details of a far-flung company, and he gained the confidence of the special committee and the board. With Mr. Wood as counsel, the special committee successfully completed its responsibilities, and the company avoided an SEC investigation. I strongly recommend Ron Wood.”
