Jeremy Wakeham is ‘very knowledgeable’.
I have worked with Jeremy and his team on many real estate transactions in the UK, most of them highly distressed, all extremely complicated, and all had moving targets due to the complexity and timing of the deal. I am, however, glad to say all of them were highly successful.
