Hear what our clients say about us

I have worked with Sam now on many turnaround assignments over the last 15 years. I have always found him to be extremely focused and user-friendly with an innate ability to engage successfully with all key stakeholders. I have worked particularly closely with Sam on mid-market manufacturing and retail assignments, as well as large national charities. I would always recommend Sam to directors who need expert legal assistance in navigating difficult times and support with engagement with all stakeholders as they drive towards a successful turnaround.

Dr Mark Taylor Bluesky Associates Turnaround & Transformation Advisory LLP

Sam is great at building relationships, has a strong knowledge of the marketplace and will make introductions to relevant third parties. He is proactive and very commercial, coming up with suggestions and solutions that we hadn’t thought of. Sam doesn’t just focus on the legal documentation, but also uses his mind to find ways forward. He is very down to earth and is never difficult to get hold of. Sam offers a genuine, partner-led approach.

This is the best news, thank you so much. Deanne, you have been wonderful throughout and especially helping me with my serious upset and frantic feelings, you have gone above and beyond anything expected.

I am so grateful for all your kindness throughout this whole process.
