A deep sense of professionalism and an unequivocally ethical approach set the tone in a long and complex commercial case that often required detailed analysis.

Never losing sight of common sense, the advice was always measured and supported by a clarity of presentation that allowed the Board to continually assess its options in an informed manner”.
