“Law is a personal business. I work with a wide range of Clients. However, whatever the task, it always comes down to the Client and I working together to get from A to B. The relationship side of our business is all important.
In large law firms, particularly with my type of work, Clients’ work is frequently passed on from fee earners to junior team members for them to process and complete. That doesn’t happen with me. If you see me you know that I will be dealing with the work. I am accessible and available. This personal aspect of the service is greatly rewarding for me and I believe is appreciated by our Clients.”
