Testimonials

‘The most important thing for me is the quality of the people within the team, taking the time to understand our business and building an ongoing relationship. Issues such as technology and processes are peripheral, provided they are fit for purpose.’

‘Andrew Masters is thorough, supportive and committed to our business. Andrew provides us with reassurance and we don’t think twice about using his services.’

‘The vast majority of my dealings have been with Andrew Masters and the things I value most in working with him are: A friendly, professional relationship; an understanding of the Company, how we operate, and our potential issues; prompt, informed and detailed responses; an openness and honesty in providing advice and guidance; a practical, solution-oriented approach to challenges; rather than adopting a single approach, outlining a range of options and talking through the pros and cons of each; and a shared sense of wanting to do the right thing by the Company and its employees.’

‘I have dealt with Andrew Master, who has led Employment Law for a number of years. Andrew is very approachable, pragmatic and helpful and has helped us to resolve a number of issues over the years. Andrew quickly gets up to speed on an issue and makes himself available to support us often at short notice.’

‘We have a long-standing business relationship with Andrew Masters. Andrew has built up and retained a good understanding of the business and the employment issues we sometimes face.
