What you have said about working with Rory...

I found Rory Wakeling to be excellent, easy to contact, friendly and patient.

I needed advice and representation with my employer at short notice. Rory Wakeling provided a very professional, personal and responsive service. I felt confident with his advice and guidance and was impressed by his “can do approach” to meet timescales.
