I have also instructed counsel in complex matters, both Junior Counsel (JC) and Senior Counsel (SC). This experience and expertise means you receive expert legal advice and a court room advocate that is able to express your views directly in court. This experience also guides the advice given to you as our client, simply put, real world expertise and experience. We know this sets us apart from other law firms offering similar services.
