How did you find your way to our firm?

Mesa’s General Counsel remains affiliated with a New Jersey law firm which is a member of Primerus. It was through that affiliation that Mesa found its way to HH&S.

What is important to you when choosing your legal team?

Certainly, experience and competence share first place. Timeliness/responsiveness would fall closely behind.

What was your first impression of HHS?

From the initial introductory/“get to know you” emails and telephone calls, the professionalism, responsiveness, and quick assessment of Mesa’s needs by Mike Henry and his team left a first and lasting positive impression.

What is a key highlight of your experience working with HHS?

We are now working with HH&S for the second time on a Canadian acquisition. Through our prior transaction and the current one, HH&S has and continues to demonstrate high standards of professionalism, work product and client service.

Would you recommend HHS to others?

Without hesitation.

With its recent acquisition of the Infitrak business, Mesa has now expanded its footprint into Canada. This is an exciting time at Mesa, but when faced with navigating the legal differences between the US and Canada, I feared the acquisition could be a daunting task. It was very reassuring having Houser Henry & Syron as part of Mesa’s acquisition team. With its breadth and depth of experience in handling transactions of this type, HH&S was a strategic partner to Mesa in getting this deal closed. Its professional staff quickly evaluated our needs, and responded with timely, practical, and effective counsel and advice, freeing us up to focus on the bigger picture. Houser Henry & Syron will continue to be our “go to” law firm as we grow our business in Canada.
