Diarmuid Laffan – 4 New Square ‘Diarmuid is a hands-on operator who is not afraid to seize the narrative and craft effective strategy into which the client buys in from Day One. Specifically, the diligence with which he pursues that strategy while at the same time keeping the client’s expectations (whether on time and cost or otherwise) is endearing.’
