“Will was a real pleasure to work with, extremely dependable and always willing to go the extra mile to assist both other gc lawyers and the clients. He was thoroughly committed and was an invaluable member of the deal team. He took ownership of aspects of the transaction and saw them through to Completion without needing any hand holding – I would not hesitate to involve him again in other transactions I am working on. He has the makings of becoming a great lawyer, and I suspect it won’t be long before he is running significant transactions of his own.”
“I’m indebted to the professional services of Mel Kang and Will Squires in handling the sale of my dental practice. This was an arduous sale which involved two abortive sales, but with the sheer persistence of Will and Mel, they both gave me the encouragement and focus to get it over the line with my third buyer. At times it was very stressful, but with daily and immediate support from both, we got there in the end. I always had someone to take my call, English was not my first language, but Will and Mel were very good at explaining everything to me.”
