Taurus Developments has looked after the interests of Hammond Rutts Investments Ltd for the last six years. The Directors first met Michael nearly twenty years ago when he was at Land Securities PLC. His practical, sensible approach and attention to detail always stood out, as did his determination to see projects finished. We continue to work with Taurus today.

LaSalle Investment Management has worked successfully with Taurus over the last four years and in that time Michael Gibbens has delivered two very successful schemes. Michael is extremely pragmatic in his approach and brings considerable experience, knowledge, skill and professionalism; optimising a project outcome and delivering significant value. He is also a trusted partner and it has been a pleasure working with him.

Osborne has worked with Michael Gibbens over the last ten years both as a client during his time at Land Securities and Equity Estates and as an adviser to us since he established Taurus. Michael’s attention to detail and personable approach is highly regarded by Osborne and, in providing development acquisition and consultancy services, he gives clear, professional, balanced and considered advice.

I have used Taurus to provide advice relating to planning and feasibility on an existing holding in Greater London. I have found Michael to be very knowledgeable, professional and diligent on this particular instruction and am convinced that his insight and endeavour will provide added value for the Fund that previous advisers have been unable to extract.I would have no hesitation in recommending Taurus in terms of assessing development viability.
