“I enjoy simplifying complex legal matters for my clients by resolving claims pragmatically. I have found the best way to do so is by establishing a clear strategy for each matter from the outset. Working with sophisticated clients in their differing industries is especially exciting for me, as I am exposed to some of the best in their respective fields on a daily basis.”

Bertie enjoys gaining a deep understanding of each particular industry, as he believes that ultimately, the client benefits, especially in the long-term.

“I always try to maintain an attitude towards stakeholders in the industry that encourages openness and reasonableness as I believe clients are then able to view the firm in a more approachable light. This is why Barry.Nilsson. was so appealing to me, as the team is dedicated to providing excellent service, as well as building long-term relationships with clients.”
