“Steve has acted for TTC on a number of assignments and we have found him to be a very thorough and competent professional who always has our company’s best interests in mind. Whilst we often give him a tight and specific brief he is often able to identify risks that we perhaps may not have noticed or considered and provides advice on how to mitigate them. In business I like to work with trusted advisors who I can pick up the phone to when there is a spot of bother, Steve certainly falls into this category and I would not hesitate to recommend him.”
