Why are we different?

We’re specialists – we only do what we are good at. We use a network of trusted referrers to help you, but we stick to what we’re best at.

We’re client focussed. We treat you like a person and not like a case. We want to discuss with you how we can best help you (like a doctor, not a mechanic).

We collaborate. We commit to helping you reach agreement without taking you to court.

We’re offering our clients fee flexibility. We tailor our service to meet your needs. We offer certainty about fees, all the time.
