We requested assistance from John Flint at a time when a commercial dispute was becoming increasingly frustrating. John provided sound advice on the approach we should take…. Without his advice we would probably be no nearer to a resolution of the dispute. His approach has been pragmatic , thoroughly professional and highly responsive.
John Flint of Clarke Willmott is extremely approachable and understanding of his clients’ needs. His analysis of complex issues and exposition of potential outcomes is very impressive. Highly recommended.
