Those clients describe the firm's solicitors as 'very flexible and responsive,' and are quick to recommend their services" Chambers UK, 2012


Jolyon Smith on the quality of our work


"One of the most interesting transactions that I’ve worked on was in the dispute resolution department, where there was a potential fraud, and one of the first things that got me into law, was the idea of just going to a courtroom and seeing barristers argue and solicitors helping advise them. And it was really good to see the entire legal process, from start to finish, and being instructed by our solicitors and seeing the barristers arguing the case in front of the judge. And, as a trainee, getting that experience down at the High Court was fantastic and something that I’d always wanted to be involved in."
