‘Jon recently acted for me in a regulatory matter. I could waffle on for pages regarding how impressed I was with Jon but in the interests of concision I will attempt to condense it into three points:

(i) In a time of undoubted panic, he is a calming influence which in my view is invaluable. His approach is well-informed but, importantly, sympathetic;

(ii) he is able to grasp the relevant issues with frightening efficiency. The matter he dealt with for me was peculiar to the area in which I practise but he was able to drill down to the nub of the issue with such efficacy that one could be forgiven for concluding that he was a seasoned practitioner in that area;

(iii) his drafting skills are exemplary. In my case, he prepared a persuasive and thoroughly well-drafted document which resulted in a no further action outcome.

I would unhesitatingly advise anybody who is in the unenviable position of facing regulatory action to utilise Jon’s services’.’
