Working with Layth and his team at Lucentem Sports & Entertainment Law has been an exceptional experience. As my organization has been steadily growing I needed a legal professional to restructure and improve my company by-laws, code of ethics and the regulatory framework for my Track and Field club. Layth and his team were the right people to do it! They were professional, client-focused and provided the reassurance that I needed when I wasn’t always sure about the path to take. Layth has a calming demeanor and a cool confidence that always eased my mind of worry because I knew that Layth and his superb team had me and my club’s interest at heart. They promised they would handle everything, and they did. Absolutely an awesome team over there at Lucentem Sports & Entertainment Law.
