"Larry Thompson, with his deep experience and superb judgment, served as my trusted advisor. Larry's quiet counsel helped us successfully navigate a host of difficult legal, corporate governance and public policy issues. Every CEO should have a Larry Thompson!"
--Indra Nooyi, former CEO of PepsiCo
"Larry is a man of remarkable faith, integrity and compassion--a courageous and brilliant leader with an unwavering commitment to fighting injustice. He's attributed the righting of grave injustices his pro bono counsel has achieved, to an act of G-d. Quiet Counsel should be studied by generations to come as a textbook on faith, moral clarity, and the relentless and altruistic pursuit for justice."
--Rabbi Zvi Boyarsky, Director of National Policy, The Aleph Institute
"Larry Thompson has served his country with distinction as a United States Attorney and as my Deputy Attorney General. His deep experience makes Quiet Counsel worthwhile for anyone wanting to know more about the U.S. legal system."
--John D. Ashcroft, former United States Attorney General
"An absolute must read for all business leaders seeking profound insights and strategic excellence."
--Lionel L. Newell III, former Senior Vice President and Treasurer, PepsiCo; Lead Independent Director, Bank of America
"Larry's poignant description of the events leading up to 9/11 and how they affected him is a testament to the challenges of public service. Larry has demonstrated humility and candor about the hardest decisions, before and after they are made, and the larger excitement and anguish of serving in positions of responsibility, in government and the private sector, particularly in times of division and uncertainty."
--David S. Kris, former Assistant Attorney General, National Security Division, United States Department of Justice and Founder of Culper Partners LLC
"Larry Thompson embodies the unique qualities of all great lawyers: unwavering integrity, great judgment and compassion, a willingness to listen to others, and an uncanny ability to come up with creative and practical solutions to difficult problems."
--Paul B. Murphy, former Chief of Staff, Federal Bureau of Investigation and Partner, King Spalding, Special Matters and Government Investigations
