  • We needed an adviser who can help be reactive to our needs because when its complex you need someone who is going to stay close to the detail and react quickly to enable you to complete the transaction. We chose Square One Law after we ran a process and looked at various advisers. We wanted a firm where we could have access at partner level throughout the whole process and we wanted to use a local firm who had a knowledge of the region that we were going to be building the plant in.
