"Ian is a rare creature, a solicitor who not only has a huge intellect and ability to quickly get to the heart of a legal problem, but he does so with a smile and a great sense of humour. It has been a real pleasure dealing with someone who can make what was, for me, a complicated contract issue, clear and understandable. He’s professional at all times. Highly recommended."
