The Legal 500 - The Clients Guide to Law Firms

Clients know their needs better than anyone else, but making the right decisions about their property might not be as obvious as they think. Property is often the most valuable asset, whether it’s residential or agricultural property and clients want sensible, practical advice to make informed decisions. I’m a bit of a hybrid really as I advise both residential, commercial and agricultural clients. The combination works well as I can take a mixed perspective. It comes naturally for me as so many members of my family are involved in agriculture and rural business.
