Independently researched legal guide, Legal 500, praises Senior Associate Jan Rzedzian for his “depth of knowledge” whilst Chambers notes his “very efficient, prompt, articulate and specific” advice as part of his construction law practice.

Chambers UK and Legal 500 also single out ‘very experienced’, ‘user-friendly lawyer’Graham Sutton for his ‘inside-out’ knowledge, placing him in a position whereby he can ‘tie the other side in knots’.

One client sums it up by saying “I wouldn’t use anyone else.”

Members of the Federation of Master Builders receive a free half hour consultation.
