Client Testimonial

Tim Hardesty is our residential development lawyer. He is a good lawyer and has offered very sound advice. He is able to provide advice on land purchasing, planning, SDLT and issues that impact on the land buying process. What I like about Tim is that he doesn’t use legal jargon and has a common-sense approach to land buying. He is proactive in getting deals done and importantly from my perspective doesn’t hold deals up over unimportant legal points. He is also very personable, and well known and liked by other professionals.
