“The damages figure was a lot better than I was expecting, so thank you.”

“Brilliant, thank you for your help on this case.”

“Under the circumstances it seems like that was a great result!”

“You made the best decision on this day and it is a shame that the other side got this far before acknowledging their limitations. These did not come as a surprise as they seem to have tried to prevaricate procedurally throughout but fortunately you have been their match.”

“Thanks for all your efforts on this one and achieving such an excellent result – it couldn’t have gone any better!”
