Testimonials Dr. Daniel Sindelar, CEO, Keystone Bio

"Husch Blackwell (HB) comes with a great reputation, but most importantly Myers Dill was willing to discuss OUR needs. Myers promised me HB would be available for Keystone Bio as we needed and when we needed. That was extremely important for us. One of the biggest roadblocks to a startup of any kind is the need for exceptional legal structure, while at the same time not becoming cash-poor in the pursuit. Myers and HB were great to work with as Keystone Bio worked through that phase."
