Paul Coxworthy


“When a client is faced with a problem, it is always easy to point out what can’t be done. I aim to respond by identifying what can be done.”

Collaborating with clients.

Paul puts a real emphasis on really knowing his client, and appreciates the collaborative approach this fosters. By foreseeing and forestalling what could become problems, he is able to identify and help his clients implement proactive measures. And with clients’ expectation and necessity of more rapid, yet still accurate, communications and resolution of issues with their own clients, Paul brings timely and accurate advice and solutions to bear.
