‘I mostly work with Tom Shears and the advice given is always professional and reliable. Where the law may be ambiguous, Tom always provides helpful risk based options so that we can take informed decisions. I’m particularly impressed by how well Ward Hadaway and Tom understand our business and culture – the relationship feels like an extension of our own organisation.’
