The Firm are general practitioners working with a wide network of specialists to ensure their clients are advised by the best in the field.  The Office in Marylebone, facilitates access to a wide range of professionals and clients.  The Firm only accepts clients by referral and limits the number of clients it accepts by the desire for the Partners to recognise them in person or by phone.
