    ‘I can’t thank the wonderful team at Hamlins enough for their help in my recent phone-hacking lawsuit with NGN. Aside from being incredibly talented lawyers, Chris Hutchings, Daniel Shaw, Isabelle Sands and Anna Seal, also showed a sympathetic understanding of my requests and handled this sensitive case with the utmost dignity and professionalism, achieving the results that I wanted.
