What Sam's clients have to say:

"I just wanted you and your firm to know how pleased I was with your work and advice. You listened to my thoughts, queries and worries, guided me in the right direction and were able to take away some of the frustration for me. What I found very comforting was that whilst this was anticipated to be a lengthy and expensive process, your intention was never to carry out then charge me for unnecessary work."

Work highlights

  • Settled a breach of contract/negligence claim brought against a touring company by two American bands (and the touring company’s associated counterclaim).
  • Negotiated an amicable compromise of a claim brought against an individual for specific performance of a contract to sell a residential property.
