Supporting your ambitions
Zak quickly understands complex structures and problems and filters out the noise so as to identify the key issues for his clients in a clear and simple way. His insight and experience coupled with a commercial and pragmatic approach helps his clients achieve their desired outcomes in a co-operative, efficient and cost-effective manner.
What do others say?
Zak has been described by a client as "first rate, with first rate values" and commended for his quality of work, quality of service, availability and responsiveness. He is ranked in band 1 for banking and finance in East Anglia by Chambers & Partners and praised for going "beyond being a normal lawyer" to help clients get a commercial deal.
What else should you know?
Though born and bred in Norfolk, the influence of a sport-mad grandfather in Suffolk means that Zak runs the gauntlet of being an Ipswich Town fan rather then support the more obvious local team. Like his team, Zak is never one to seek the limelight even though some of his achievements may be deserving of it.
