We recently worked with Sierra Legal in relation to an acquisition opportunity – we were extremely pleased with their approach, where they genuinely partnered with us as part of our team rather than simply acting as advisers. This is the first time we have experienced such a model work so successfully, and we will continue to work closely with Sierra Legal in the future.

I worked closely with Craig Sanford when he was a partner at Middletons, where he had the important role of client liaison partner responsible for managing the firm’s relationship with David Jones. Craig was an excellent client liaison partner - he was very accessible to me and my team and went out of his way to ensure that David Jones was receiving quality legal advice in a cost effective manner. In terms of legal services provided by Craig himself, I have always found his work to be of a high standard, timely and commercially focused.

TTG have worked with Craig Sanford for many years initially in his capacity as an M&A lawyer and partner at Middletons where he led all legal matters in our first acquisition in Australia and then later in his capacity as MD of Sierra Legal where he worked with us on varying legal matters. Craig and indeed Sierra Legal have been pivotal in helping TTG as an international business grow and establish ourselves in the Australian market. For a global company like ours we are only as good as our partners and thanks to Sierra Legal we have been able to over achieve our goals and establish ourselves successfully in this new market. They are very professional in their approach and a real pleasure to work with. They are dynamic, friendly and focus on getting the job done without making life too difficult. I would recommend these guys without hesitation.
