Firstly, we are very grateful for Dan representing us on Thursday. You saved us extra legal costs and were very helpful in briefing us on the subtle distinctions in considering last minute options. I could almost hear your mind impressively whirring. It would have been very easy to have launched us into battle, having done all your expert preparation, especially at the twelfth hour with us all fired up, chomping at the bit. Restraint doesn't come easily to me. With your expert guidance, we made the right decision. Tricky to accept at the time but I'm reminded whatever the issue, usually the hardest option is best. Ours sincere thanks also to Sarah for her diligence and hard work behind the scenes. She is clearly a very talented asset to the number one law firm in the County.
