David assisted me re-locate from Sydney to Glasgow and secure a role in a firm I was really keen to work for (having previously worked for them in Sydney).  Not only is David a nice guy that is easy to deal with, he is incredibly effective at getting things done.  He has a real enthusiasm to get the best outcome for you and his communication is fantastic.  Having worked in a different jurisdiction, David’s knowledge of the Scottish legal market was invaluable to me.  I have recommended David to friends and will continue to do so.
