Client testimonials

"Mike (Dyer) quietly goes about his business; no fuss, no drama he just gets the job done. A key factor in the successful outcome was Mike's intimate knowledge of the club. Having acted for the Trust and individual presidents on the original purchase in 2013 Mike not only had the necessary experience but also the required empathy in dealing with a stakeholder group that had made an emotional as much as a financial investment in the club."
