“During the summer of 2020, we worked with Nick Atkins and his team at Stevens & Bolton. They represented us on the application for the UK Future Fund whereby Nick and the team guided us through the process and made sure every detail was understood and covered. We’re super happy with the outcome and would recommend Nick and the Stevens & Bolton team to anyone who need an attentive and very diligent execution to settle a legal matter.”
