In my role, I am always on the look out for a good lawyer who is (in no particular order) practical, commercial and business minded, sensible, smart, honest and transparent, proactive when necessary, efficient, aware of tax and accounting issues, good to work with, and (most rare of all) reasonable on fees. I found one in David Windsor and would highly recommend him to others for both large and small commercial transactions.
"I have utilised David on several occasions for legal advice and services in relation to fairly detailed IT contracts and tenders. David has an excellent grasp of the IT industry, terminologies and directions which lets him excel in relation to technically oriented contracts. David is excellent in understanding the commercial outcomes required by the business but also in clearly articulating risk to ensure his client's are fully informed in the decision making process. I have also found David forthright, reliable and provides excellent customer service. He works with you to achieve your outcomes and is always available to assist. I highly recommend his services and capability."
I write to express sincere appreciation for the outstanding quality of your advice and services. This was especially appreciated over the last twelve months when Neuro-Insight was involved in a protracted fundraising process. Your ability to conduct a demanding IP due diligence exercise in a prompt and rigorous manner was extremely impressive, especially when the charge for this outstanding work was less than half that of rival law firms. Your grasp of and interest in technology makes you an ideal legal advisor for any high-tech venture. In addition your outstanding efficiency is combined with a genuine personal service par excellence - gladly travelling to meet me at my offices upon request. In summary, I find it difficult to recommend your services too highly.
There's one thing you expect when you buy legal services: buyers remorse. Unless you get those legal services from David.
Most lawyers are an expense. David creates legal assets for your business, and I'd have no hesitation recommending him to anyone fortunate enough to secure his services.
"David is a superb lawyer with a commercial mind. His business acumen is very impressive."
"David has helped us create the business structure for fivefootfour and executed all our start up documentation. He is very good at what he does, always available to debate our next steps and a great confidante. I would recommend David for any start up business."
"I have used David as my lawyer for a couple of years. He gets the job done really well, is great value for money, and has been very helpful with various legal questions I have had. I would recommend him to other small business owners."
David has added real value to the Group and has always been able to advise, guide and solve issues and problems. A great legal mind and operator...a real asset to our business. Proactive in his thought patterns, we rely greatly on his knowledge, ethics and results. Also a great sense of humour....highly recommended.
I chuckled to myself as...tongue in cheek...I suggested "Personal Trainer" as the best category in which to recommend Dave. Then, the more I thought about it the more fitting it was. Dave is my lawyer for a number of business interests, large (ok, medium) and small, but the real value is in his commercial advice and, well, training! Because Dave is so commercially focussed and a no-nonsense, straight talking lawyer we quickly solve issues (or nail down opportunities) but it always feels more like rock and roll than law. I have a simple rule, if I have to pay an adviser more than I can charge clients for my expertise then I need to come out the other end knowing I couldn't have done it myself. Dave, tick.
David is without a doubt the best Business Lawyer I have come across. He uses his cutting edge approach to get the job done right everytime. He has an excellent eye for detail and his advice in the matters of business and due diligence is spot on. I highly recommend David to anyone needing counsel or advice in Business.

This ongoing relationship has proved invaluable to the smooth running of our business as he has a high degree of general business and legal know-how as well as being able to think outside the box. We have been particularly grateful for his ability to clarify complicated legal terminology and processes.
David is a detail oriented and very focused individual. I have worked with him for many years and have been using his services on regular basis, he certainly knows his field well but also has knack for IT, new business (start ups), and what is generally going around in the "market"; which is a great bonus. Along with legal he also gives sound business advice. I highly recommend him!
"Having worked with David extensively I can confidently recommend him to anyone looking for clear, concise and practical legal advice. David's strengths lie in his ability to get to the core of the problem at hand, be it strategic or operational whilst keeping it real, and understandable for his clients through clear communication, clarification of goals and the development and execution of a strategy to get your business where it needs to be."
I have found David to be a large asset to our business and he is like having a lawyer/adviser on staff. David has been with me since inception in 2000 and has advised us on business structuring, tax, HR, exit strategies, even accounting & IT! Dave's strength is his vast general knowledge and common sense approach. He demystifies the law making it easy for us to make informed & timely decisions. Each year if we look at our fees invoiced and what David has saved us in real dollars across the business, it is incredible what the net gain is. David also advises on how our external accounts are performing and over the past 5 years he has made sure we are getting the correct attention/and are structured correctly to ensure our business is profitable paying the least tax

We've found David to be outstanding in his attention to detail, timeliness and effectiveness. David's best attribute is his ability to minimise the amount of "to-ing and fro-ing" - he efficiently captures our instructions, asks the right questions & delivers what we want. Simple as that.
"David has been (and still is) instrumental in guiding our business through our 'start up' phase.

"I have known David for over 8 years and have made use of his services many times, everything from preparation of wills and advice on a company shareholder agreement, to preparation of a family trust. Every time David has produced excellent results, and offered no-nonsense, straight down the line advice. He has always demonstrated the utmost integrity and I have no hesitation in recommending him."
"David provided me firstly with expert advice in setting up my business and I felt completely confident in his work. The structure has proven successful and subsequent work in restructuring my property interests has given me greater protection as well as a more dynamic business model from a legal perspective.
