“As Zend’s contract attorney, Bill invested months to help me successfully negotiate an 85-page development and strategic alliance agreement with one of Zend’s largest partners.  Bill’s long experience with software agreements and the nuances of intellectual property litigation helped us navigate some difficult waters related to warranties, indemnification, limits of liability, and open source licensing.  He had numerous, creative suggestions for rewording troublesome clauses in a way that helped meet both parties’ needs.  He was firm when necessary, but realistic about true risks and the need to find good compromises.  Based on my experience with numerous attorneys prior to Zend, I rank Bill’s skills and contribution as exceptional.”
– Michael Scarpato, Senior Director, Business Development, Zend Technologies, Inc. (California)

“We are a software company with customers around the world. We have worked with Bill for over 14 years now. Even more recently, with an in house counsel, we often need an external person’s assistance from time to time. Bill is extremely knowledgeable in our business area and provides sound and focused advice. What I most appreciate however is Bill’s ability to calmly and professionally protect our interests in negotiations with the parties we are contracting with. He can handle both small and large deals, and is able to finesse matters even when coming up against very rigid legal department positions. We look forward to continue working with Bill for many years to come.”

“That ours was a start-up web hosting business made it absolutely essential that the attorney we would ultimately select to be our Legal Counsel brought robust knowledge of internet law, experience with similar start-ups and a willingness to be an active participant not just in policy matters but in organizational structure and development, service offerings and alliances.  We thought it would be difficult to be completely confident that whomever we selected was indeed the right best person but, in hindsight, choosing Bill Galkin was probably the easiest and most comfortable business decision we have made thus far.  If only all were so straightforward.”
