    John C H Gill Heptonstalls LLP, Solicitors
  • I thought it was a really good session - she [Gill Steel] is a good speaker and the notes are a brilliantly concise and practical reminder of all the technical issues we should be considering when dealing with NRB trusts.  It actually covered a bit more than I expected.  Brilliant value for money!
