Mentoring & Support Feedback

The support offered by BTU was incredibly helpful. Not only because it reinforced that we are doing the right things with the case which was very complex, but a second set of experienced eyes was very very helpful. BTU reviewed the work we had already undertaken and offered feedback and suggestions to further move the case along. They reviewed all the paperwork and offered their specialist opinion and gave pointers on how to proceed
