Paul was a great help during an incredibly stressful and complicated dispute with my employer.  His ability to identify the key issues and plan an appropriate strategy was exceptional and resulted in a settlement which exceeded expectations.  In addition to his excellent legal advice, Paul was sensitive to how such disputes can impact one’s life and that understanding made a very difficult process much easier to manage.  I would not hesitate to recommend Paul to friends and family.  City Solicitor – national law firm
