Sam Hodge – Managing Director and Founder, Opals

James and the team at Bishopsgate were fantastic to work with. They guided and assisted us throughout a well- structured process which delivered a really great result. They were responsive and supportive and took a lot of complexity out of the process by applying a pragmatic approach. I would have no hesitation in recommending Bishopsgate Corporate Finance.
