“Richard was incredibly helpful and offered us the advice that he didn’t think moving forward with legal action was entirely necessary at this stage. I couldn’t be more impressed with the conversation we had with him, honestly. Richard cleared up quite a lot of our confusion, and should the situation devolve further we’ll be back in touch with you/him to put the solutions he suggested in place. Especially with the state of current events, we really appreciate his honest advice. ”
