Sean is anticipating an exciting time of change within the legal profession and in particular at TSP. Sean says “A changing legal market and client expectations are always pushing us to reach greater heights of legal expertise and service. The firm has grown in size and reputation over the past 5 years but we have worked hard to retain the values and the personnel that make TSP special. We are looking forward to the challenges and opportunities that will be presented over the next 5 years.”
