I genuinely do not know how did you manage to achieve such a tremendous result, I am speechless, literally. I was hoping for adverse costs damage limitation at best, as I myself did not believe we stand a chance. This is greatly appreciated and I thank ever so kindly for what I have to consider to be a close-to-a-miracle work from yourself.

Mr James Rudall has today attended a trial on behalf of the Claimant in this matter and we would like to thank him for his work and congratulate him on an amazing 100% win in the Claimant's favour. This is especially positive considering it was extremely likely that liability would be awarded on a split basis. We understand from our client that Mr Rudall did a brilliant job and that he was very professional and competent. Our interaction with Mr Rudall has been nothing but positive. He is polite and curteous and a pleasure to work with. We shall definitely be instructing him again.
