I would not hesitate in recommending Bennett Griffin to another business. We feel we are on the winning side regardless of the situation we are stepping into. I also like the speed and efficiency with which anyone within the company can call upon another within its ranks to assist on a particular matter. I have found that all of Bennett Griffin’s staff and partners, I have had the pleasure of working with, to be excellent. Over the last few years I have been working closely with Elaine Smith, of whom I cannot speak highly enough. I am certain she is extremely busy with many clients, but she always has the ability of making me and my business feel like we are her most important client.
I have learnt over the years that a good relationship with a very good commercial law firm is as important to us as any department within our business, which is why we feel that they are very much a part of our company and I wouldn’t consider moving forward without them.
