Supporting your ambitions
A career highlight so far was defending a professional adviser against a highly significant number of claims alleged to be worth in excess of £50 million. The values alone had the potential to bring an end to the client's business. At the conclusion of the matter, when the claims had been resolved, it was particularly pleasing to receive feedback that Liam had helped his clients to "navigate a difficult path in a highly contentions and complex multi-party action, which could easily have got out of hand to the detriment of all parties".

Described by clients as "a realy joy to work with" and "completely on the money; resourceful, insightful" and "Professional, but very personable at the same time, in short he understands and gets our needs"
