“We are very thankful that we retained Sean Randall-Morris to fight our cause. We were owed a significant sum in Final Accounts from a Main Contractor with no prospect of payment. Sean is an expert in his field and a true professional. His in-depth knowledge of his subject, and diligent research, enables him to counter any argument quickly and effectively. Sean gave all the attention and time needed, working tirelessly, to achieve the result we wanted. He was always contactable and has a very approachable and understanding manner, which immediately puts you at ease. His confident and calming influence was very much appreciated as he guided us through the whole adjudication process. We cannot thank Sean enough for his help and guidance. We would always retain and recommend him in the future.”
