Settlement agreement

5

Myerson were recommended to me by a colleague. Prior to that I had no personal knowledge of the firm or any of its partners. After my initial call, Joanne made herself available straight away by scheduling a meeting after business hours. That initial meeting was very useful for setting out and discussing the issues in detail and meant that it was possible for further discussions, all the way through to a conclusion, to be conducted by telephone. During a process which required numerous phone calls the technical advice that I received was clear, objective and very useful. More importantly however, at a time and during a process when emotions could run high, Joanne provided a measured and sensible sounding board and brought a calmness which I very much appreciated. A very good experience start to finish. Thank you.
