“David brought a cohesion to a project with many complexities. His calm manner meant that decisions were taken in a controlled and decisive fashion and he explained why (and why not!) things needed to happen (or should not happen) in a particular way and clearly, to non-technical lawyers. His involvement took away the day to day worries of what is an integral component of any transaction. In short David turned a major area of concern for the MAB project team into a cohesive understanding for all parties.

To be able to work on MAB LLP business until 2pm on Friday and then return to your desk on Monday and to then be able to logon to your new firm’s systems and start work is a testament to all the people involved but this could not have been done without David’s expertise.

To do this for one firm would have been good but to do it for three plus the staff remaining to administer the closure of MAB LLP is very impressive”

“We needed to conduct an audit of the backend services and processes provided by our supplier. The supplier was un-cooperative and Kevin was met with much resistance.

Kevin’s perseverance and patience paid off and he was able to acquire the information needed for his report. In difficult circumstances, Kevin demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and commitment to achieve the desired outcome for his client. As a result of Kevin’s report we are better placed to manage the supplier.”

“A DMS swap-out project is always going to be tough. Getting a project partner who has the right work ethic, technical expertise and management experience to complement the internal team’s ‘can do’ attitude was going to be essential.

David and his team (Paul and Kevin) worked extremely hard alongside the WS Team to meet the expected business delivery outcomes. David has the technical creativity, calmness and fresh thinking needed in situations when things don’t always go as planned.

We have rarely used consultants for this sort of project in the past so I am pleased to have worked with BDC and value their contribution to the project’s success.”
