They’re an outstanding team and their expertise will only add to our property teams in these key regions of the country and help us to meet the increasing volume of cases that we’re managing as a result of a number of significant contract wins over recent months.”

Not only that, they have built an outstanding reputation in the industry and that was equally important to us as we have worked extremely hard over the years to always do the right thing for our clients. We’re all relishing the opportunities that lie ahead in joining the QuestGates family.”
