"As a senior executive for a global company its not something you think you will ever require in ones career... Right from the start [Giri Sivaraman and Rohan Tate] were absolute professionals, demonstrating complete empathy, careful listening guiding me through the options over what was a very difficult dark period. Through the entire process they treated me with integrity and support... I cannot thank or more highly recommend the Team at MB." - Brendan C.

"I was represented by Azita Arian and Rohan Tate on a complicated workplace matter. I found Azita and Rohan to be responsive, honest and thorough. They helped me navigate the situation and having them act for me alleviated a huge amount of stress in what were very challenging circumstances. Their legal expertise and the level of service was of a very high standard and I would recommend them to anyone needing assistance to manage complex workplace issues." - Client, Actor.
