    I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help and advice. We got the right result, which was in no small part down to your company's advice and support over a very long and protracted period.

    Michael Squirrell at Wilkin Chapman has been a huge support to The Dip Society right from the start.

    When launching and setting up a new business, there are so many questions that we didn't necessarily know the answer for and Michael was very helpful in terms of explaining and providing us with all the support we needed.

    It became very necessary for us to gain an understanding and also make sure that we had the right IP in place to protect our brand but where on earth do you start with something like this?

    Michael explained everything we needed to know, executed an incredibly thorough strategy and took the stress of ensuring we were protected.
