Fully recommend Tristan for his professionalism and knowledge. In our case he knew from start what was required. Not only he saved us thousands in costs but he did his work in less than anticipated time saving us further. Perfect.


Damian McShane

Tristan is a rare example of someone who is not only passionate about what he does but is also very good at it too. He is a real “go-getter”, has an eye for detail, and finds creative solutions to seemingly complex problems.


Loretto Linehan

I worked with Tristan in connection with a number of HMOs and have always found him to be very professional, responsive and approachable. This service matched with his indepth knowledge of the HMO market including the licensing and planning aspects – definitely recommend.
