I was introduced to John Mclean after a successfully negotiated Share Purchase Agreement (SPA) was concluded by Thursfields Corporate Department. I needed someone who could act swiftly and positively on a time sensitive deal which involved several large parties and was a complicated and complex legal matter.
I was impressed with John's immediate grasp of the intricate matters relating to this transaction which also involved a large Oil Company and a Government body.
There were many complications within the deal and thanks to John's thoroughness and tenaciousness this large deal concluded on time and in budget. John got this deal past the post for me and there were many occasions when he contacted me or was working on this well beyond normal office hours. It was a very professional job and I am indebted to John for his help in this.
