Andrew MacDonald is superb. He handles a very large, high-profile and difficult account for us with great aplomb meaning the need for our involvement is very small and the clients really appreciate his detailed and clear advice. The clients are all very unique yet he manages to be a chameleon and tailor his style to suit all.

Andrew McDonald was exceptionally brilliant. I could trust that he would always seek to ensure we could find a legal mechanism to support the course of action I wished to pursue and I was always kept well informed of the pitfalls and level of risk.
