We spoke to Mike Thomson, a director at Arnold Thomson who are a law firm based at our centre.
How did you start your company?
We started as a satellite office for a larger legal practice.
What is your proudest achievement as a business?
Providing excellent service to our clients to ensure that legal situations they encounter do not become expensive legal problems.
What was your most recent notable project?
Completing on a sale of a property on behalf on an occupier of the Innovation Centre who had lost their buyer. They then found a new buyer, and we needed to ensure this sale went through quickly and successfully - much to the relief of our clients. Once a client has been through the experience of a sale having fallen through, this immediately adds to their anxiety as to whether this will happen again, so it was great to complete the transaction smoothly and remove that worry for them.
