On arrival at GHP Legal Carter said: “After commuting into London for many years I decided it was time to take advantage of the international freedom that IT has brought to the workplace and enjoy a better quality of life in the more relaxed environment of rural Shropshire and North Wales. Now I am looking forward to representing both new and old clients within the growing company and commercial department at GHP Legal.”
