I am very happy with the team. The response was rapid, professional and expert. The administrative support was excellent and they handled the communications such that key messages were passed on efficiently. I think my case was very complex, but the lawyer assigned quickly came to an understanding and found a good mutually agreeable solution. In summary, during a very stressful time for me, the Furley Page team were excellent and I’m very grateful.
