I have been lucky to have worked with some amazing Lawyers all over the world to help with our Real Estate related transactions, and never have we come across a Solicitor as smart, capable , and as easy to work with as John. Over the past few years John has worked on many Real Estate transactions for us bringing critical thinking to each case. Quite often transactions have involved scenarios where John has had to “think outside the box” to deliver a deal resulting in the Company saving significant sums. I would recommend John and his team to anyone requiring excellent work, and unparalleled professionalism he is a pleasure to work with and we look forward to working with him for many more years to come.
