      Deepesh is a highly competent skilled professional in the area of business law and in particular in the area of finance. I have worked with Deepesh for a number of years and he has always impressed me with his sound technical advice to clients on deal structuring, contracts and security issues. He also has excellent skills in drafting documents, negotiating and closing transactions. On a personal level Deepesh is great to work with and easy to get along with.
