“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”.
“Just wanted to let you know that in this case on 10th January, Gabriel got a good result for us and provided a very prompt and helpfully detailed report. Thanks to him and you for your assistance”.
“Gabriel did an amazing job for us, considering he only had a couple of hours to look at the papers before the hearing. He achieved for our client more than I was expecting. This is the first time I have worked with him and I was very impressed. I expect that he will continue to do some great work for 3PB in the future. I definitely hope we can work together again.”
