  • Translation of language is just one element to successful understanding of a situation, and in my experience, an individual’s needs and expectations vary greatly based upon their own country laws, convention and working practices. My experience of legal representation and commercial administration for various clients in four different countries has required immersive involvement and a deep practical understanding of how things work and how to get the job done. I truly understand the issues facing a client when embarking upon a foreign judicial process, and am well placed to guide them through.–James Garbett
