What my client says about me

The legal team at Slater Heelis led by Simon Wallwork were outstanding on this transaction. We agreed with the vendors to work to tight timescales and the Slater Heelis team were instrumental in enabling us to complete on time. Working as a cohesive team they were pro-active in anticipating the issues that would arise and ensuring they were dealt with quickly.
