I have known John now for a number of years and have dealt with him on numerous assignments. I have always found John to have a refreshingly commercial approach. He is extremely proactive and is always responsive, which are both important qualities in the work that he undertakes for me. He is not afraid to voice his opinion on difficult matters and I have introduced John to many of the contacts that introduce work to me, such is the faith that I have in him

It’s a good few years now, since I happened across John who was acting for the other side on a client matter. I was immediately impressed with John’s proactive approach, and I decided to instruct John on another matter. It was soon apparent that John stands out in his field and he’s been my first port of call for support and advice, ever since. John’s carried out countless assignments for me, over the subsequent years, and I can genuinely say, he has supported me unwaveringly throughout that time. The strongest testimony which I can offer, is to say that, I will continue to instruct and recommend John, absolutely and without any hesitation
