J. LongManaging Member. Planet Foun.. LLC
“Over the last 18 months, Lou Amatucci and Centarus Legal & Consulting Services has provided counsel, contracts, and corporate structure for our technology start-up corporation, Planet Found Energy Development LLC. Mr. Amatucci formed our corporate structure with institutional SEC compliant operating agreements, PPM’s and more. With this we have been able to easily complete formal equity share sales to Investors. His representation and work for Planet Found has included challenging international, strategic negotiations with European and Peoples Republic of China corporations. On one occasion in only a few weeks, he and Centarus Legal & Consulting Services successfully recaptured our corporate equity from a European interest that was defaulting on an agreement. We have found Lou Amatucci’s advice and perspective to be an absolutely a critical element in our success. But he doesn’t just talk, he listens and puts great effort to understand and interpret our vision and needs into acceptable and productive terms. He has also been a very patient “teacher”, taking time to instruct us, and explain to us the reasoning and regulation behind the services and materials he provides. His cost estimations have been accurate 100% of the time. His achieving of deadlines has been 100% of the time. His returning calls the same day has been 100% of the time. His ability to produce institutional quality documents has been 100%. On a personal note, consistently Lou Amatucci has demonstrated a professional and personal integrity that makes the formation of legal matters, for layman like myself truly a pleasure.”
S. BolgianoManaging Member. Planet Foun.. LLC
“We worked with Lou and Centarus in order to prepare complicated and innovative filings with the state of Illinois. They have always supported us with loyalty and enthusiasm, even after unforeseen complications or changes to our business model. His team is responsive, delivers good work, values establishing relationships, and has a “problem solving” attitude instead of a “saying no” attitude—a rare and valuable thing, in my opinion. I recommend [them] to anyone who needs an experienced securities attorney who must balance business realities with legal requirements.”
S. Villarreal. CEOLendsqu…LLC
“Lou Amatucci and Centarus Legal Services have been above and beyond what we expected of attorney services. He was there every step of the way through the detailed and iterative process of writing our PPM and our operating agreements. He was always able to answer our questions and provide us with insight to how we could best structure our offering. Lou and his team work quickly; so quickly in fact that it was always they who were waiting for our responses to them! It was clear that we had made the right choice with Centarus. We had looked at many firms to work with, but only Centarus had us convinced that they were going to get the job done right. We sincerely look forward in working with them again in the future!”
