I have worked with Gill for over 3 years now. Her approach was very professional and direct, which made it easy to get to the issues that needed quick responses. Gill has managed to get a huge amount of evidence together whilst also trying to bring each case to a speedy conclusion.
Director, Kaizen Professional Limited
Gill's breadth of knowledge is outstanding and her ability to pick a simple solution in a cost effective and time efficient manner is of great benefit to us. She is pro-active in her approach and available to assist no matter what deadline she is faced with. Gill’s understanding of our sector is second to none and she is most certainly our “go to” lawyer. Keystone’s approach to breaking the mould of a traditional law practice is to be applauded and one that sits very well with the speed with which we sometimes need to react.
Managing Director, Knox House Trust Limited
Gillian offered pragmatic, practical advice and cut through the “peripheral” issues to the heart of the dispute. She was swift to respond to any queries and gave clear and succinct direction on responses. I found her exceptionally easy to work with, extremely professional, accessible and with a keen sense of humour which we needed in this matter.
