We were recommended Murray Snell on the grounds that they were very good communicators – they listen and give good feedback, clarifying legal points promptly and clearly. We have completed several transactions successfully, including a complicated legal matter involving land ownership, where their persistence over a prolonged period led to a successful conclusion.
