Having worked with Anderson Strathern for the past few years, I can thoroughly recommend their team. The quality of work by this firm and Karyn Watt in particular is outstanding. Karyn has an exceptional ability to grasp and handle complex issues and her attention to detail and provision of advice in a timely manner has always been of great assistance. Karyn is knowledgeable, is very easily accessible and answers all questions. She maintains close coordination with me and I am kept appraised of developments on a regular basis. She is very professional as well as friendly. The working relationship with Karyn has developed into a trustworthy partnership, for which I'm very grateful.
