Herald have provided both Lone Star and Hudson with honest and considered advice on the acquisition and strategic repositioning of a number of significant UK portfolios in the last 12 months. James and the team have worked to particularly tight deadlines but have always delivered thoughtful written work to the highest standard, whether it be a portfolio acquisition or a single asset. With many years experience in the sector, James has an insightful view of the market and we value very highly the independent advice that Herald provides.”

James Riddell
Executive Director of LONE STAR EUROPE ACQUISITIONS LLP

Herald have provided pragmatic and responsive support to my team at a time when resources are under most pressure. This enables us to meet tight deadlines and close transactions within very short timelines. We work closely with the team and call on their market knowledge on a regular basis to provide an insight of the market and our future acquisitions.""

Shaun Robinson
Managing Director of Somerston Capital

I have worked with James in a number of capacities during the last ten years, as his client , where he was advising "the other side" and as a colleague. His knowledge of the hotel industry is extensive and this means his advice is always well balanced, candid and current. In my view this makes him a compelling negotiator and deal maker.”

Felicity Black-Roberts
Senior Director Acquisitions & Development EAME,
Starwood Hotels and Resorts

We first used James 20 years ago when selling a 50 bedroom hotel from our family-owned business and have relied on him for advice ever since. Although he spends much of his time advising major international players he has always been available for friendly advice and guidance. James has huge experience and understanding of the hospitality scene at all levels; he can also be relied on for a sharp appraisal, keen common sense and a realistic prognosis of the situation. This is rare in a sector generally very keen to 'puff up' any opportunity they can.”
