“I found Counsel incredibly helpful yesterday and already put him notice that I would like to instruct him on future matters of the same nature”.
“Dear Gabriel, thank you for all your efforts in this case, which undoubtedly contributed to the successful outcome. I valued your attention to detail, that you identified what was at the heart of the case and the sensitivities so quickly, that you were tenacious enough to ‘have a go’ at the half time submission of no case to answer and your regular communications with me throughout, even when there was not much to report. I look forward to working with you again soon”.
“Many thanks for the detailed note, an excellent outcome to the case. I spoke with [the client] who advised that she was very happy with the outcome and made particular mention of how reassuring you were before the hearing. Thank you for all your assistance on this”.
