Testimonials

They have insight into public sector work which is beyond what I have enjoyed elsewhere. They make a selling point of their outside London location and relatvely  lower prices – this seems to have been matched in tenders submitted to this authority. ‘

‘Clear billing, and they stick well to tenders and demonstrate excellent fee management, giving early warnings if unanticipated matters are likely to affect base fee amount.’

It’s their common-sense approach that I find most appealing and the ability to advise / recommend the best course of action without a monologue.’
