“The team are compassionate, hugely motivated and very knowledgeable. You feel listened to and supported. Remziye Ozcan was warm and considerate, whilst being incredibly professional and competent. She went the extra mile to support me through a very difficult matter. Caroline Field was always available and very flexible. The warmth they both showed stood out to me.” (Legal 500 2022 – Senior Executive)
