Legal 500, 2020 - Commercial Litigation
"The pragmatic advice we received from the team at Geldards recognised the company’s need for immediate and decisive action in order to protect our position. Michael worked quickly, efficiently and accurately to complete the necessary paper work for the court hearing, which was on short notice, due to the urgency of the matter. As a result, the company’s application was successful, which was vital in the case. Consequently, the company’s assets were protected and our position in the litigation was strengthened."
Gavin Payne, Chief Executive Officer, SHS Integrated Services Limited
"Having no experience of litigation or the court process, I appreciated the understanding and consideration Michael had for my situation. Michael took extra steps to guide and assist me as my claim progressed, adopting a personal approach. He understood the pressures I faced and recognised the importance to me of achieving a satisfactory result, but not at any cost. In the circumstances, I believe that we achieved the best possible outcome."
