Don’t take our
Word For it

Exemplar’s team has been exceptional. Since 2008 they have guided us through a multitude of complex legal and business transactions. From contracts, setting up our ESOP, corporate structures, holding companies, negotiating investments, lawsuits, trademarks and much more. As a result, we have always had access to the best regardless of our needs, and in a spirit of true partnership and support when it mattered most. Fast, nimble, dedicated, high performance, friendly, and strong.

Kipp Stroden, Chairman / CEO Essential Living Foods, Inc.

My experience with Exemplar has been so profound to my business direction that I have recommended them to a close niche of clients and friends. I certainly don’t give out referrals that easy but this referral is a no brainer which is apparent given the impact it is having on those now working with Exemplar. Precise, caring and most of all they listen and act!

Lisa Robinson, CEO NBBL, Inc.

Due to their collective experience across a broad spectrum of subjects, Exemplar’s team was able to quickly understand our complex organization, enough to have made several suggestions that, upon reflection and execution, have been good moves.

Sean Michael Brown, CEO Delphi Village

The advice I received by working with Exemplar has made me a much better businessman, and manager. They have shown me techniques to improve and streamline my operations. I have also found the advise to be priceless and invaluable. I can not thank them enough for all of their help and guidance over the years, they have become indispensable.
