I moved from a larger firm to Cockburn Lucas; a smaller and more personal firm. I welcome my annual meetings with Alistair Fraser and feel able to phone him for advice whenever I feel the need to do so. After over a year I feel very positive about both the ethical stance of Cockburn Lucas and their financial results.
