Steve has kindly asked me to contribute to this blog and I’m delighted to do so. Through our own membership of the Professional Contractors’ Group, now IPSE (Knowles Warwick is also a member, as many readers of this feed know); I had the pleasure of meeting with Steve recently at the Sheffield office. He in turn has paid us a visit at our Manchester head office and we’ve started to assist clients of the firm with matters of an insurance nature.
I suppose it’d be a useful starting point to let you know who we are and what we do!
