Ian’s wide ranging knowledge and practical experience is an extremely valuable combination”.

Stephen Prosser – Regional Manager, St Modwen PLC

“Linchpin are knowledgeable, professional and trusted advisers, who do what they say on the tin. I have always been happy with the quality of their work and their client-focused, friendly approach.”

Ian Watson – Chief Executive, Hansteen PLC

“I worked with Ian Summersgill for a number of years on a grant-funded project to develop a 50 acre business park in East Lancashire. The developer was a joint venture between my company and Enterprise plc later Ashtenne plc, both of which Ian represented. We installed the main infrastructure throughout the park, procured and let a 20,000sf office building in a dozen short tenancies and then sold the building as an investment and the park as a development prospect, both very successfully. Ian was always a joy to work with: unflappable, diligent, knowledgeable - sound in every way and I am pleased to recommend him most highly”.
