What clients have said about Marcus:

"Marcus has been an ongoing support to our business for a number of years. He has worked with us through some extremely quick and challenging property acquisitions, as well as handled difficult landlords and provided myself with excellent guidance and support throughout. With his expert knowledge he has helped mitigate risk  for our business but worked in a solution driven fashion to achieve our goals with us and consistently done so in a calm and professional manner. We consider FSP as a trusted partner in our property advice and I would highly recommend them to others."

S Roberts, Whistl

"Marcus is one of the most client-focused lawyers I have met. Marcus is always quick to respond, yet considered and very commercial in the advice he provides."
