I am now working on my second venture with PAG. With my first company, the PAG team assisted us with all our corporate legal needs, from the very beginning at incorporation until the sale of the company. I am now starting to work on a new venture and it was a no-brainer for me to work with PAG again.

AGP Miami

When I heard PAG was a law firm built around the notion that “happiness” was a priority, I sort of smirked.  Having spent the past few years working with PAG, I realize I am happier and there is one less bit of stress in my life.

Marco Giberti, AGP Miami


Simply the best team of lawyers I have every worked with.  I am grateful for all the business advice the PAG team has given me.

IBS Capital Advisors

Most lawyers practice law with a lot of ego.  PAG just gets problems solved and deals closed. No drama and no ego.  A real pleasure to work with such fine professionals and human beings.

FJ Labs

Jackson and his team at PAG are insightful, strategic corporate attorneys with unique expertise in Venture Capital deals. As a VC investor in tech companies with global operations in all stages, they have proven valuable throughout the course of our investments – from incubating the business with the founders to negotiating with later-stage institutional investors. He understands the need to be responsive and can handle complex multi-jurisdiction legal issues with ease, and the quality of work is what I expect from a large law firm. PAG is a trusted partner of our group.

FJ Labs, Jose Marin (co-founder)


Jason thank you so much for this help. Without you this deal would have been impossible. I have no more words to say. Thanks!
