Ben is a lawyer who enjoys helping businesses grow and develop. This involves realising opportunities and minimising risk through a pragmatic and commercial approach that keeps the business of profit making at the centre. Device and agreements are tailored and specific to the needs of the individual business – not cookie cutter solutions.
