    Legal 500 2017
  • The corporate and commercial team acted for me in the sale of two businesses and also carried out the legal work on two leases. They were thorough in their work and I was pleased because we were able to cut through the “legal speak” so I could easily understand why and what we were doing. The other point which was important to me was that matters were dealt with in a timely manner. I have spent too many years in business chasing people to do things and it was refreshing NOT to need to do that – thanks.
