"I have worked with Jessica for five years. She is ultra responsive, working long hours, late into the night when there is a problem which is time-sensitive.
Jessica gives clear, concise and practical advice, and understands what our business is trying to achieve. I have a business headquartered in the US, where more than half of our employees are in other countries, so it is important to have someone I can work with for all my UK legal needs. I would happily recommend her to others."
