Oliver Jackson

Partner | Sheffield

"I have now dealt with Oliver for several years. It goes without saying that the technical expertise of him and his team is first rate - what makes them stand out is their willingness to go the extra mile.  Should Oliver need to work whilst he's on holiday or at the weekend to get the job done, he has done so without question or complaint. This work ethic gives me the confidence that once I have instructed Freeths, I know the deadlines will be met."
Kris Wigfield, Managing Partner of Begbies Traynor Sheffield
