“This is a very significant project for us and it was very important for us to be working with a firm that has such an established practice in the region. It has also been useful to have the experience of the senior team at Brachers, many of whom have trained and practiced at large City firms. We were very pleased to have the team on board, as this is a huge investment for Benenden Health. We were grateful for their help in guiding us through some of the more complicated contractual areas.”
