Louise Fuller advises a variety of clients on a range of matters, including acquisitions, sales, new builds and refits. Fuller is “easy to deal with, sticks to the issues and gets things done,” says one peer, and another adds that “she plays it with a straight bat, there are no games with Louise.” A client reports: “She is obviously technically very competent and her communication skills are very good. If you want a lawyer who knows her stuff, understands clients’ needs and the urgency of things, and can convey what is happening in an understandable way to a non-legal person, she is the one.”
