TESTIMONIALS & CREDENTIALS
‘Christen did more than just understand our requirements - she went beyond contractual obligation, had our backs, and was resolute, tenacious and unwavering in protecting our interests during a lengthy lease negotiation process.
Without Christen’s expertise, we’d have faced disastrous exposure on a legal and financial basis.
Not only that, as our negotiations spanned the period of the Covid Pandemic, and commercial implications of the crises emerged, Christen's commercial knowledge was vital in bringing our attention to pertinent additional considerations so easy to miss - enabling us to make informed business decisions with unwavering assurance.
Finally, unlike so many of her peers, Christen is gifted in being able to communicate complex legal terms - and the commercial consequences of them - in a way the non-legal minds of her clients can grasp.'
