Tempus Fugit’s Tenacity Proves Successful for Boston Biotech Business Litigation Client

I discovered my business was damaged, and was not sure where to turn to or what legal remedies, if any were possible. I turned to Tempus Fugit, and after a brief interview of my situation, I was told I had a case. A video meeting followed, with Attorneys Schipani and Hamdan, the key points were gathered and they quickly put together a course of action. I was hand held and assured through the entire process, as I had never been in such a predicament before, and Alexis consoled me through the entire process as we worked as a team to bring about a quick resolution. I can’t thank Alexis enough for her candidness, tenacity and professionalism. I would highly recommend Tempus Fugit.
