The quality of the restructuring, insolvency and commercial litigation services provided by James Hamilton of Coleman & Greig is outstanding and excellent value for money. James is a highly experienced legal practitioner with whom I have worked regularly over the last 15 years on a range of Court applications, complex advices, Voluntary Administrations, Deeds of Company Arrangements, Liquidations and all manner of related commercial aspects that befuddle less experienced and able practitioners. Efficiency, experience and thoroughness stand out as a couple of James’ attributes. Whether the matter is mundane or complex, James always delivers his thorough, efficient value for money service. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending James’ services.
