Robert has recently retired from touchline parenting but his season ticket at Fulham FC, and his regular visits to Twickenham, means that he has yet to retire from the pain and frustrations of touchline viewing.


We worked very closely with Robert throughout the sale negotiations. He took the time to get to know us and our business leading to a very productive working relationship. We liked working directly with him, he was proactive at each step and always made himself available, often at short notice.

He led the discussions and coordinated with our Swedish lawyer which took strain out of the complex legal process for us. As technology experts with minimal legal exposure, we relied on Robert’s expertise and appreciated his relaxed but meticulous approach. Our interactions with Robert were always positive and led to a successful outcome we are all very happy with.
