    “Straker is New Zealand founded company in the translation technolody space. We are listed on the ASX and have been operating in Spain since 2013 with offices in 9 countries. As part of our acquisition growth phase we have purchased several entities in Europe and Scudamore Law have been assisting us with our three Spanish entities. The process and system in Spain is sometimes frustrating for us where we are used to a more simplified and electronic means of transacting in legal matters. Jeremy and his team have really smoothed the journey in this area and we are exceptionally pleased to have them on our team and assisting both when we are in market or from New Zealand.”
