“Lee Cohn & Associates navigated my company through a very bumpy reorganization in 2017. They introduced me to a great lender during the pandemic when we needed it most. Most recently they brokered a deal with Tacolicious and a very high-quality capital partner. Lee Cohn is an industry professional who get the job done, but most importantly, he’s a good friend.”
