I would like to express the appreciation of [our Bank] for the superb job you have done in representing us in this extremely contentious and difficult case. The settlement that was ultimately reached was only achieved as a result of your tenaciously held convictions about the merits of this case and the aggressive and imaginative approach that you have taken in pursuit of the Bank's objectives. Your firm's ability to analyze the situation, find the evidence and successfully argue on our behalf has been impressive. The legal research that has gone into the support of these arguments has been extremely thorough and has proven to be flawless…. This is a highly successful conclusion to a long relationship.

I would like to particularly note the efforts of Mr. David Tatge whose technical competence in both accounting and law was invaluable. He took a personal interest that went beyond all expectations. His tenacious approach was a critical element in the successful culmination of this case.

Please accept my sincerest thanks and my offer to use this institution as a reference in any work that you pursue in the future.
