Both Nick and Joe have excellent knowledge of and contacts within the local legal scene. Nick took time to find out exactly what I was looking for and both were very patient and professional throughout the process even though it was less than straight forward. I would certainly recommend then to other lawyers looking to make a move. Commercial Property Associate
