Sarah has handled two legal issues for our restaurant business - one overly charging retail outgoings, and the other, an early surrender of lease. In the first case, despite an expensive, big-wig representing the landlord, the invoices ended up being withdrawn. As for the second, it took not more than two weeks from start of negotiations to the signing the document, saving money, effort and stress. Most grateful to the real-estate agent who recommended Sarah. And of course, Sarah.
