A word from Hugh

"While the phrase ‘trusted adviser’ is overused, I do pride myself on being the trusted adviser to a number of large family groups. I act for them on all their property transactions, from their own homes through to their extensive commercial property requirements. But more than that, I value that they trust my advice on who is best able to help them when they have a legal problem outside my areas of expertise which our firm generally has the necessary related skills to handle."
