Steve Mandel is a gem. In a world where “lawyer” is sometimes used as a dirty word, Steve Mandel stands out as an individual whose compassion, warmth and no-nonsense approach makes him the winning solution to any situation. His insights and tenacity are always compelling; the hallmarks of a successful leader. Steve Mandel is cut from the cloth of men who forged big ideas and never shied away from a good battle. Think of Theodore Roosevelt, Elihu Root and J.P. Morgan who said “I don’t need a lawyer to tell me what I can or cannot do. I need him to tell me how to do what I want to do.” In these interesting times, we need more people with the confidence to think this way. Steve Mandel is one of those people.
