Thomas did a great job with us in helping us to be GDPR compliant. He had experience dealing with startups and talked me through any tricky legal terminology. He also helped us beyond the original brief and made sure we were in a good place before concluding the job.

Thomas was a very good guy who wanted to service us as much as he could. He knows the law by heart almost and is good at guiding you. Thomas does not come across as a lawyer, but almost a friend who wants to help you and he can see the business angle very much. We are happy to recommend Thomas for any job and we cannot be more than very happy that we got this guy to help us.

Thomas has helped me with some serious advice on my commercial position in a difficult shareholders' situation. I needed someone to assist me through the scenarios that unfolded. He was supportive and cut through the 'noise' of the situation with his concise advice. Very grateful for his professional services.

Thomas was not just professional but also almost a mind reader. He had great communication despite being in different continents and got a thorough understanding of the problems i was facing and the solution that was needed despite the distance and difference in time zones.
