"We have worked with Denise Walker on a number of occasions now. She has completed a complex restructuring of our group and has also acquired other businesses on our behalf. Denise’s straight forward advice is invaluable from a commercial perspective and we treat her as our sounding board for business strategy. We cannot recommend her highly enough and we have moved all of our business legal requirements to Glenville Walker."
