Ruth Murday

Senior Solicitor

We have really enjoyed working with Ruth on a number of projects for the business. She is extremely professional and diligent, yet patient enough to answer all levels of question. She went the extra mile to make sure the project was delivered on time, and on budget, which was greatly appreciated. We are extremely happy to have finally found a solicitor that is a good fit for our firm.”
