“The handling of my appointment with Verifone was an effective and pleasant process, even though quite protracted due to events beyond our control. The team at Carmichael Fisher was outstanding, openly communicated and kept abreast of both sides of the situation, getting the balance between providing direct input and knowing when to step back and just facilitate the process.”
