Outside of the office
Most weekends, you can usually find Ben on the football pitch or in the North Sea!

I always find that Ben goes the extra mile to help even if the matter may not relate directly to his area of expertise or practice.

From our first interaction with Ben he understood our needs and adapted brilliantly to suit our specific project. He took the weight off our shoulders and took it all in his stride dealing with everything that we encountered with the utmost professionalism. Ben has a breadth of expertise and we look forward to working with him more in the future.


I just wanted to say how impressed I was with Ben.  Very friendly, professional and confident.  He gave a great presentation – exactly what we were looking for.


For corporate and commercial matters, I mainly deal with Ben Jackson. Ben is diligent, approachable and knowledgeable.
