Artem K. April 4, 2021
Outstanding experience and highly recommended! I have worked with Zlatkin Wong LLP several times over the last year on different post incorporation docs and contractor agreements. My experience was outstanding and I'm highly satisfied with their work. Ilya is very responsive and I was always getting answers to all my questions. He was helping me to find the best solution for my case describing different possible options with pros and cons. I was always getting enough attention and I felt like they are willing to help and do their best. The results of their work were excellent. Highly recommended! Я работал со Zlatkin Wong LLP уже несколько раз для составления различных договоров для корпорации и остался очень доволен результатом. Илья ответственно подходит к делу, описывает различные варианты решения, их плюсы и минусы и помогает выбрать наиболее подходящее. Также я получал ответы на все вопросы, достаточно внимания и видел, что мне хотят помочь и ответственно относятся к работе. Сервис и качество работы на высшем уровне! Очень рекомендую!

Don't choose anyone else! I have been represented by Ilya Zlatkin for almost two years now relative to my screenwriting contracts with producers and managers. His legal services are top notch, and I used to be an attorney, so I know the good from the bad. This firm knows ALL of the ins and outs of the entertainment industry and the laws that apply to them, so I have had nothing but success in my dealings as a screenwriter. Much thanks to Ilya's kind and professional legal services. Moreover, their fees are reasonable. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS FIRM!
