Strengths (Quotes mainly from clients)
Client service: “Murdochs does a good job for its clients. A key asset of the team is that members are approachable and easy to deal with, and don’t take silly points – all factors which explain why they are successful.”
Andrew Blatt is highly regarded within the solicitors discipline arena. Clients say: “The skill that Andrew has is that he empathises with his clients. Because of his understanding of the regulations and his standing in the regulatory community, he is able to empathise with you and also put your case across in the way you wish it to be put across but don’t have the skillset to do so yourself.”
Robert Forman regularly appears as an advocate at the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal. “He is quite experienced and I was very impressed by his knowledge and presentation,” said one client.
