Legal 500, November 2018

I have had the pleasure of working with Julian for the last 18 months and he has always worked to the highest professional standards. VAT is a minefield which requires safe navigation and with Julian on your team, you can reach the other side not only intact, but with more than you started. Always thorough and thinks outside the box – just what you really need.
