PRACTICE GROUPS

I have known and worked with KBL for at least 15 years. In that time I have relied on the firm's advice and in particular Richard Levychin's counsel and professional referrals on many occasions.

No matter what the nature of my concerns or issues KBL provided clear, practical, and well developed solutions and alternatives. Professional, experienced, and laser focused on improving their client's profitability and operating efficiency, KBL partners and staff have demonstrated to me they are tireless advocates and trusted advisors.
