Laura Gray and Sarah Lewis provided a fantastic service when we needed it most, stepping in after several other firms were unable to help. Their attention to detail was excellent and they communicated everything clearly while we were up against very tight deadlines. Their experience really was invaluable – I would recommend them and Birketts’ Corporate and Commercial Team to anyone in the same position.
