  • Louise is technically brilliant but more impressive is the way she wears her technical expertise so lightly. She doesn’t get bogged down in the legal technicalities, but takes a much more balanced view of a problem. She recognises that the legal position is only one of many factors at play, and she gives practical, real-life guidance to help you solve it. Her experience means that she can spot likely problems before they happen. She is a great communicator and a fierce negotiator.

Louise is very precise and she is straight to the point which kept me on the right path.
