What clients have said about the corporate team:

“The corporate and tax team always provide us with advice that is clear and practical, however technically complex it might be. Our needs are very seldom straightforward but the support we enjoy is always timely, in good humour and designed with the real world in mind…”

Tim Smith MBE, Chief Executive, Thames Valley Berkshire LEP
