speech-bubble for Mike Armitage Quote

Clean Slate instructed Bradley and Jefferies to provide legal services for our acquisition of another cleaning company.  At all times I was impressed with the timely responses from Matthew which helped the process run very smoothly, even during periods of involved negotiation and with third parties.  I was also pleased that the fee was in line with their estimate at the outset.  I have no hesitation in recommending them for acquisition work.

Mike Armitage, Director Clean Slate Limited
