Stuart Rea handled our unusual and complex matter with professionalism.  He understood what we wanted to achieve and gave us very clear guidance on our legal position - even though we did not necessarily want to hear the advice it was essential to our charity understanding our legal position and therefore making lawful decisions.  He also worked to the very tight timescales that we needed.
