“I found working with Nick excellent. Nick excels at analytically accessing a situation and distilling it to the core legal issues and extracting the key information. This was very reassuring and meant that I was excellently prepared at every stage, facing no surprises or uncertainty. Nick was honest, direct and accurate with his advice and in circumstances where bad news or negative outcomes must be conveyed, he does so with excellent communication skills and reassuring human touch. I also felt Nick's team we're well prepared, professional and did an excellent job. I highly recommend his services.”
