What Our Clients Say About Brian
Brian Auld, Partner at Tollers, with his Team, took on the legal aspect of selling our 100-year-old family business.  Brian’s approachability, kind and caring nature, along with his wealth of experience, professionalism and pragmatic approach made him the perfect person to take on the sale of our small business for us.  Brian navigated and advised us through the process, ensuring our timeline was kept on track and, at times of emotion, was a calming, reassuring and steadying influence.  Brian’s Team was also very diligent in the preparation of the documentation and getting the deal over the line, within a relatively short time frame, meeting our deadline perfectly. As Tollers’ slogan says, we had ‘exceptional people, exceptional service and exceptional delivery’. Thank you, Brian and Team.
