Hear what our clients say about us

As someone who practices at the Bar almost exclusively in the area of health and safety and regulatory law … I can say that Jonathan (Edwards) has a well-deserved reputation for being at the top of his professional tree.

He has a vast array of legal knowledge and also possesses considerable tactical and strategic acumen in relation to whether or not cases should be defended….

James Leonard, Barrister Outer Temple Chambers

Colin Jones, Head of Construction Legal Services, delivered a comprehensive and well explained presentation giving an overview of the Building Safety Act to delegates invited to the webinar by The Insurance Institute of Reading, which was very well received.

One delegate commented “Very detailed review of new Act, plus detailing secondary legislation to follow”, amongst a number of similar comments.

Please do not hesitate to contact Colin Jones for advice on construction matters including the Building Safety Act.
