Thank you Nathan and can I say how impressed I was with your approach and detail, it made the whole process as easy as it can be

I wanted to say big big thanks for recommending Nathan to help me with my settlement agreement. He has been great and very helpful indeed. I would not hesitate recommending him to other people.

Nathan was able to bring to a successful conclusion a difficult settlement which could have been avoided had I had his knowledge of this area of employment law. He has also been able to advise me on other matters in his personal and friendly manner.

Mike Shingler, Owner

Care Micro Systems Ltd

Excellent and practical advice. I was impressed by how he understood the issue and was able to put himself in my shoes. Highly recommended!

Virginia Phillips, Director and Owner

Red Oyster Limited

I cannot recommend Nathan highly enough. Throughout the course of my case I found Nathan to be efficient, thorough, professional and creative. He was also supportive and compassionate during what was a very difficult time for me. Needless to say that the Tribunal found in our favour.
