"The client was satisfied with the advice received and by the pragmatic approach taken."

"An impressive oral submission"

"The best representation he [the lay client] had had to date"

"Tax super hero"

"The advice you gave was extremely useful and appreciated by me and the client."

"Outstanding support"

"HMRC must sometimes get fed up with Keith ... but I think he's great."

"I find Keith a very personable person and someone who can put difficult tax concepts into simple terms which is great for clients including accountants and tax advisers!  I look forward to working with him again."

"Thank you again for the energy and conviction with which you have acted, to such decisive effect."

"My sincere thanks to Keith for his excellent help and support on this matter, I am probably as disappointed as Keith that he couldn't win the case in court rather than the HMRC simply backing out for obvious reasons!"
