Kevin’s advisory services are well sought after with clients impressed by his thorough yet clear advice both in writing and in conference. Kevin’s experience as a law costs draftsman and at a national firm of Solicitors prior to commencing pupillage enable him to provide first class service in cases where an appreciation of the ‘bigger picture’ is required.
