What Others Say
We have known the Corporate Team at Lupton Fawcett for many years and they have assisted the Crossroads Group on a number of commercial transactions. The most recent acquisition by the Group was, in my experience, one of the most complicated and sensitive deals that I have been involved with. The Corporate Team, led by Michele Phillips, performed in a highly professional and efficient manner and I have no doubt that their assistance was a major contributory factor in us closing our latest acquisition deal. - Andrew Fletcher, Crossroads Group Limited
