Testimonials

The most gratifying praise we have received is from our satisfied clients over many years. This is evidenced by their continued confidence and patronage as well as by their referrals of other clients. Below is a sample of what our clients say about our services:


[Pamir] has been (and continues to be) a most trusted adviser, especially in providing diverse corporate support in regional M&A and investment projects as well as comprehensive strategic intellectual property litigation support such as in a victorious eight year "battle of titans" trade secret litigation in U.S., Taiwan and China, resulting in favorable (to TSMC) judgments in China, Taiwan and the U.S. and in multiple hundreds of million dollar settlement.

[Nick Chen] is one of the most astute folks in ferreting out the real facts (rice-paddy myth has him walking a field in China to determine a potential unreported dumping of toxic chemicals of a target acquisition, only to return to the facility with the soles of his sneakers melting away!).

Among key advisory roles [Pamir] has played for us are: investments in the greater China region; electronic discovery and document management system planning; implementation and advisory work related to assorted China issues, etc.

Nick Chen stands head and shoulders above other firms with regard to the excellent client care and the exceptionally high quality services that he and his firm have provided over the years. "

No one ever expected that [this engagement] would ever be so difficult. This was a very frustrating, complex, and challenging assignment to say the least. Although the desired result was not what we initially expected, through your hard work, guidance, and perseverance, we achieved the right outcome.

Back in 2002 our new business was not doing well and we were thinking about closing it down. We were lucky to have the Pamir team spend a couple of hours with us going over our strategy and business processes. At the end of the session we felt we had new energy and a new tweak to our plan. Enspyre is still here and stronger than ever so I think that's testimony to Pamir's help. We tell all our employees about what we call "The Kick from Nick".

Over the years Pamir have been on hand to give answers and support during tough times. They are not only good lawyers, but also fun guys. That's worth something extra.

They sure have my endorsement!
