What our clients say

  • Andrew Garland, partner. He is a very bright litigator, and totally on top of the evolving law relating to claims against directors arising out of the use of tax avoidance schemes. He is very effective in his working day, making good use of a paralegal so that work is undertaken at the appropriate level. John Cooper, partner. He is a good all-rounder for insolvency, undertaking litigation and transactional work. I have found him responsive to client demands, sensible, commercial and easy to work with. It is a pleasure to pick up the phone to him
