Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (10/12/2018)

It has definitely been a busy week at Heitner Legal. At least I’m following through on my own suggestion to make October the month you give it your all and grind at least twice as hard as you did in September. The beginning of November won’t be any more relaxing on the work front (in fact, I have to miss the Turkish Airlines Open for the first time in four years, which is pretty disappointing for me), and I’m already looking forward to a hopefully more relaxing mid-to-end of December. I’d rather not discuss the Dolphins, but how bout them Gators!

(1) On Demand Esports App One Up Announces Launch and $2 Million Raise;
