It’s also important for everyone that the cost of this support and advice is clear and agreed.  We will always agree a fee estimate for our work, whether big or small.  This way everyone is clear on the fees we will charge.


We do not focus on sectors as we have a diverse client base which includes businesses across all sectors including the cutting edge agricultural and land owning sector, software, internet based businesses, property, construction, professional practices, and healthcare.
