What my client says about me

Exit strategy and implementation of leaving a Business where I was a Shareholder, Director and Employee; where I was disadvantaged by ill health and being a minority Shareholder.

The deal put together by Tracey and Simon was straightforward and well executed leading to a very satisfactory result both financially and personally.  This had been a period of high anxiety for my wife and myself and we were symapathetically dealt with by all and in a most professional manner.

The fee structure was reasonable and original estimate was adhered to.
