    The moment I met the Bell & Co team in person, I knew I’d work with them. In my experience, some lawyers can be difficult to work with, very complex and you don’t always get straight answers. I rely on personal recommendations and Bell & Co were recommended to us while we were going through a restructure. I’m a reactive client but I need to know they’ll be there when I need them, and Bell & Co are. They didn’t come across as your standard law firm, they were matter of fact, to the point and made things understandable, enabling us to make better decisions and resolve things in a more seamless way, I’ve always found them outstanding to work with.
