I'd highly recommend Nick: he has the ability to translate legal complexity in to everyday language whilst being pragmatic & commercially astute. His case management is second to none & his expertise & support was invaluable in managing senior stakeholders. Above all though he is personable, has high integrity & is great to work with.
