Since the 1990s, Shell has been at war with John Donovan

It is fair to say that the first dozen years of the business relationship between Shell and Don Marketing was very successful for both parties. Not only in the UK but around the world. We enjoyed a mutually beneficial and trusting relationship.

We also regularly publish legal documents involving Shell that would otherwise be hidden was from preying eyes behind a paywall. read more
