How to resolve commercial disputes without going to court
Peter Taylor is a character that I personally have very high regard for, and at a moment’s notice you can ask Peter for his honest and professional opinion no matter what the subject matter may be. Peter will always listen to both sides being very open minded and thoughtful in his decision process.
I would highly recommend both Peter and Paris Smith.
