I would highly recommend Lauren Ainsley from Boyes Turner LLP. She assisted me with a property deal recently, and was an absolute pleasure to work with. Extremely professional, knowledgeable and friendly! Always updating me and chasing up to ensure deadlines are met. She went the extra mile to make sure the deal was waterproof. I look forward to working with her again soon.
