We moved to Bishop Fleming from one of the major international firms some years ago and have never looked back. We are a family with a variety of interests to look after: manufacturing, farming, a commercial and residential property portfolio, a pension fund and a variety of trusts so we really need a firm with the breadth and resources to look after us properly. Bishop Fleming have the breadth and also the depth of professionalism to cater for all our needs. We also require inventive thinking and a holistic, conceptual approach to keep us abreast of all the opportunities open to us and to make life - well – interesting. We like the culture of the business: accessible and friendly but focused, informed and business like as well. Finally, as business people, we want value for money. Cheap advice is no advice but we want and we get value for money. Robert Robinson, Robinsons Cider
