George brings the urgency and insight of an entrepreneur to legal matters and to general business problems he brings a lawyer’s ability to cut through complexity to find the essence of the issue. George brings his full attention, his considerable energy, and formidable skills to all his endeavors. I have witnessed first-hand his ability to advise the manager of a small business on marketing strategy, to implement Sarbanes Oxley compliance in a large organization, and to guide, as a legal and strategic advisor, a billion dollar acquisition. To each of these engagements George applies his extensive experience and intelligence with grace and integrity. His expertise in corporate governance, his business operating experience, entrepreneurial bent, and legal background combine to create a professional of immense value to any business.

George is a thoughtful and creative problem solver with a strong bias toward getting things done. I served as a board member with George for a family owned middle market company and was always impressed with the multi-disciplinary and cross-industry perspective he brought to the meetings and the issue at hand. I saw firsthand the benefits of George’s ability to cut an issue along legal, financial and operational lines and provide a unique view to the discussion. This approach to issues in the boardroom quickly moved George from board member to trusted advisor.

In all of my years in business, having dealt with hundreds of advisors, I know of no one who has achieved success on such diverse platforms: law, finance, and operations, nor at such diverse scale: small, middle-market, and very large companies. George truly possesses a unique blend of perspectives and experience that cannot help but to improve the “batting average” of any business with which he may associate.
I began working professionally with George when he took charge of the business of a long-time client. We both knew that this would not be an easy position because the business had already had some years of difficulties, both operationally and financially. As it evolved, I became very impressed with George’s performance.
George began by assessing the Company’s strengths and weaknesses and by identifying opportunities for improvements as well as for revenue growth. I worked closely with him and found him to be very competent and knowledgeable. He was logical, well organized, and communicated well with all levels of personnel. I particularly enjoyed when we met to discuss problem solutions because he brought to the table a broad spectrum of experience and ideas. George uniquely combines the knowledge of a lawyer, a CPA, and a seasoned business executive.
I highly recommend George to anyone entering into a new venture, needing to make changes to an existing enterprise, or seeking advice and counsel on a variety of business or related matters.

I have been recommending George to my clients for their legal business issues for over twenty years. George is especially talented in matters requiring high emotional intelligence. George has artfully and successfully assisted clients in situations where an in depth understanding of the interpersonal dynamics, whether between buyer and seller, family members, and/or the involved professionals, were complex, nuanced, and necessary to achieve a successful result. I continue, from time to time, to meet with clients I had referred to George, in some cases twenty years later, where mention of his name continues to bring a warm smile. George has a quiet confidence which allows him the comfort of “thinking outside the box”. The multiple perspectives, both professional and personal, which George brings to the field of play, make him uniquely qualified to counsel businesses where the human dynamic is central to moving the matter forward.
— Gregory A. Daoust, CPA
I have worked closely with George Bukuras in two different companies in the last few years. He has a unique blend of skills: Successful business background, legal expertise, and accounting expertise. As a successful businessman who is a lawyer and an accountant, he has perspectives that few people (in my experience) have. He has worked with large mature companies as well as early stage companies. His emotional intelligence and set of skills make him an asset to assist a wide variety of companies.
