"I've negotiated and drafted many high value deals with Zand over the years involving complicated exclusivity and windowing. Zand, while always a tough negotiator, who vehemently protects his company's interests is a true professional and straight shooter. Zand has a deep understanding of the media business and a keen eye on ensuring he considers future evolution of the industry."
