‘Josh Steele is our main commercial lawyer and he has taken upon himself to get a deep understanding of our business and people; in some ways, we see Josh as an employee rather than a consultant and that is the way it should be. He is available 24/7 and understands when mission-critical activities arise that he needs to be on top of them and deliver which he does to the highest standard. his work and advice have been flawless.’
