    Mr. Stief is one of the most skilled and respected counsel I have worked with in the Employment Law sub-category of "restrictive covenants." He has an uncanny ability to recall the state laws of most U.S. states with respect to restrictive covenant enforceability (sometimes better than hornbooks). He is creative aend practical in his application of the law to specific facts. In addition, he is very well-respected and has a highly professional manner of dealing with judges and counsel.
