The individuals we communicate with on a day to day basis (Peter Gardner and Anis Waiz) have a great working relationship with us. They provide a personal service where they consider our opinions and our risks. They invest time in me and my colleagues to develop areas we are not particularly knowledgeable about, and they regularly provide progress updates on our ongoing cases.

I have known Anis Waiz for in excess of five years. Throughout that time Anis has acted for us on various commercial litigation cases ranging from the simple and low value to higher value and more complex cases.  Anis has provided us with consistent, effective legal advice always with a commercial view.
