As the relationship has grown it is clear that we’re getting more value then we’re paying for in terms of billing and if anything, we find that the team find innovative ways of helping us that keep our costs to a minimum.’

‘Alex is excellent and even when we’ve been stressed with the direction or the numerous set backs, she has been able to help us to understand the legal situation, which is always more complex that we’d expect.‘
