"As company secretary of CAIS, I have no hesitation in recommending potential clients to Williams Denton. We have found them to be a highly professional and knowledgeable firm, large enough to have much expertise in the organisation, but always having the time to devote to us when required to answer a multiplicity of questions that crop up. They have ensured that we have always conformed to all aspects of regulation and since we engaged them some five years ago we feel that they have always ensured that we fully comply with and keep abreast of up-dated rules."

Anthony D White, Company Secretary, CAIS Ltd
