The Devil's in the Detail

In November we achieved an excellent resolution at mediation in a claim relating to unpaid introduction fees, for which the assignor company had been seeking payment for 4 years prior to assignment to H&J. H&J achieved a great result, resulting in significant sums being paid to the wronged party - and a real feeling of justice having been served.
