What People Say

Really helpful and not as stuffy as the ones I’ve looked at elsewhere. Great tips on those of us who are trying to gauge the things to ask clients and balance this with keeping the bundles to the barest essentials, without over-bloating on facts and relevance.

Teerachai Sriasi

This was a complex area but very well and thoroughly explained … Good legal summary of the position which I can use in practice.

This course is essential for anyone working in this field. The course provides extremely useful guidance and I would wholeheartedly recommend it – I will certainly be ensuring all my team take the course!

Chris Cole

A good analysis. Particular good reviewing the appeals provisions when the commencement has just been announced today.

Very useful to have links to relevant forms. Quiz at the end enabled me to check my understanding and result came with feedback as to why my answer(s) were wrong. A pleasurable way to obtain CPD.
