We are extremely proud of the feedback we have received from our clients for the quality of services provided
by our RGP Legal consultants, which demonstrates our continued commitment to their success. Below
are a few testimonials from a sampling of our clients:
"In short, very pleased. We've utilized RGP's attorneys on a few occasions, including recently on
M&A and technology licensing transactions, and fully see the value of in-sourcing complex legal work.
RGP's sophisticated attorneys were spot-on, hit the ground running, and earned the respect of our
internal clients. We continue to view engaging attorneys from RGP as a best practice for periodic legal initiatives."
-- Christopher W. Ekren, Senior Vice President and Deputy General Counsel, Sony Electronics Inc.
"We've now utilized a number of consultants from RGP to support our Legal, IT, and Accounting functions.
The multiple attorneys and a paralegal assisted in a variety of areas, including commercial contracts, real estate, and
corporate governance, as well as a complex, high stakes M&A deal. I've found that RGP consistently offers the highest
caliber and quality of professionals. We've been pleased with their work product, all at rates which are quite reasonable
considering their strong backgrounds. The client service team also goes the extra mile, assisting me in ways that are extremely
helpful but don't necessarily mean something immediately to their bottom-line."
-- Harrison Clay, VP Renewable Fuels & General Counsel, Clean Energy Fuels Corp.
"We have a small legal department which supports a thriving business, and we often find ourselves inundated with work.
Whether it's a special project, a gap in our internal resources or a new initiative, we've had great results relying on the
attorneys at RGP to help us with corporate governance, litigation management, employment matters, and general
corporate transactions. Equally important, internal clients who have worked with RGP's consultants have been complimentary
of the level of their expertise, 'can-do' attitudes, and strong work ethic."
-- Neal A. Crowley, SVP & General Counsel, Smile Brands Inc.
"Acquisitions always create new legal and business challenges. We were able to utilize one of RGP
accomplished corporate attorneys, who worked on-site as member of our legal team, to help us close the deal
in a timely manner. I appreciate the experience, professionalism, and dedication of the RGP attorney
we worked with and think RGP has an innovative solution to rising legal expenses."
-- Norman W. Gholson, Vice President, Assistant General Counsel, Mattel, Inc.
"RGP partnered with us effectively and provided us with an outstanding lawyer who was able
to contribute to our business from the first day of her project. The lawyer had broad commercial contracting
skills and was exceptionally adept at working with our internal clients and closing out projects. In addition,
she was a perfect fit culturally for our company, and was embraced by the members of our department who recognized
her as a top notch professional who worked collaboratively with every one of my lawyers to help them succeed."
-- Michael C. Ray, Vice President, Corporate Law, Western Digital Corporation

reliable solution for some of our legal needs."

"A refreshing and positive experience - with court-ordered deadlines rapidly approaching, we turned to RGP
to help us with a critical element of eDiscovery by reviewing a large volume of electronic documents for privilege and
the creation of a privilege log. The legal consultant that supported us had over 20 years of experience and was able
to immediately step in and complete the project quickly and accurately. Not only did the RGP team help us
meet the deadline, but they helped us significantly reduce the costs of our litigation."
-- Teigue Thomas, Vice President and General Counsel, Acer/Gateway Computers
"Bankruptcy is a challenging process, fraught with legal and business complexities. The attorney RGP
deployed was well-versed in the bankruptcy process and also sensitive to the people and financial issues involved.
This attorney helped to bridge us through a period when we were facing unique new demands on our time, losing key
people internally, and trying to control rampant outside counsel spend."
-- Leonard McGill, SVP, General Counsel & Secretary, Fleetwood Enterprises, Inc.

with RGP again."

"Pleasantly surprised - As general counsel of an emerging growth company and a first time client of RGP
Global, I was skeptical as to whether RGP's attorney could provide the quality of work that I expect from
top ranked law firms. RGP's attorney delivered - he helped us move three simultaneous transactions forward
on a tight schedule, and his work was first rate. I'll absolutely use RGP again."
-- Paul Galleberg, former Latham & Watkins corporate partner
"RGP partnered with us to help manage an especially high volume of merchandise licensing contracts.
RGP assigned a superb attorney with entertainment industry experience who was able to seamlessly integrate
into our group and provided training to my lawyers for some of the more intricate aspects of the licensing contracts,
viewing her as a true business partner. As a result, we successfully executed an enormous backlog of contracts, and
built a stronger team along the way."
-- David McDonald, Director of Global Contract Administration, Fortune 100 company

involving a line of credit, review of master trust indenture, and support with a tax-exempt bond financing. This individual
was not only a seasoned, highly competent attorney, but also a fantastic cultural fit with our organization during a period
of critical need. The cost-effectiveness of the RGP. business model is impressive considering the caliber and quality
of their professionals. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with them."

The RGP attorney we utilized had impeccable credentials and was able to quickly and adeptly complete numerous

our deals done. We look forward to working with RGP again in the future."

add value to our enterprise."

"When we turned to RGP for legal support, they exceeded our expectations by delivering an experienced attorney
adept in a variety of legal disciplines. He quickly gained the respect and confidence of our executive team by guiding us
through a sensitive corporate and management restructuring. Moreover, his business acumen, creativity, and collaborative
approach proved invaluable as we launched into the global markets. In short, we couldn't be more pleased with our experience
-- Ennio Ponzetto, Chief Executive Officer and President, eCommLink, Inc.
"Acquisitions demand a high level of legal sophistication, experience, and attention to detail. Given our complex structure
and the high expectations of our private equity investors, we turned to RGP's because we knew its team of legal
professionals would not only bring significant experience to the table, but would also support our in-house legal department
for a fraction of the cost of what we would pay to our outside counsel."
-- Tania King, General Counsel and Ethics & Compliance Officer, Advantage Sales & Marketing, LLC
"Given our positive experience working with RGP's Accounting & Finance Consultants, we were delighted to look to
RGP's Legal practice when our needs required an interim General Counsel. RGP provided an accomplished
attorney that had both a strong national law firm background and relevant experience as a general counsel. This attorney was
able to assimilate very quickly into our business and was an invaluable member of our team during the time he was here."
-- Keith A. Katkin, President and CEO, Avanir Pharmaceuticals
