"The team at Clark Howes were both diligent and patient in working with us on our recent purchase of London Creative. Although on the face of it this transaction should have been relatively straightforward it proved not to be. Their analysis of the situation, in-depth prognosis and straightforward response to issues as they arose was the glue that kept this deal together. We have every intention of using Clark Howes for our next transaction."
