Just a short note to thank you for your outstanding support. I have seldom been through such a frustrating experience, but this was greatly eased by the thoroughly professional way in which you supported us. I cannot imagine there will be any more acquisitions coming my way, but if there is, you may be sure that I will seek your support again.

Client

Congratulations on your 10 years of success, with the quality of service you and your team provide I am sure the next 10 years will see more deserved success for you.

Client

Having the experienced and professional team from Thomson Snell & Passmore on board during the sale definitely added value to the transaction. Their tireless pressure and determination on legal points did not go unnoticed and I will always be grateful for the impact their hard work delivered to achieve the final result.

Client

I’ve been so impressed with you all and it’s been a real pleasure working with you and I hope this is the start of a long relationship. I’ve really appreciated the extra time and out of hours effort you have put in to help us get to the finish line. So thank you so much.

Client

We have had very good service across a number of disciplines and look forward to doing more in the future.

Client

I realise they have not been the easiest outfit to work with but I just wanted to say thank you - to you and your team - for the extraordinary commitment you have all put in to get us to the line. I was expecting you to hit your limit of tolerance these last few days, if that happened you hid it well and due to your effort, flexibility and forward thinking we finally got there… despite their best efforts at times!

Client

Thomson Snell & Passmore provides an ‘excellent level of service’ and ‘shows a good understanding of what is needed in all situations’.

The Legal 500 2014

Many thanks indeed for all you have done and particularly the way you have done it.  Straight to the point and very pragmatic – exactly how I was told you work and the way I like to do things too. The recommendation was spot on.

Client

There was much to this conversion that was not encountered before by TS&P, and much which we discovered, which belied the siren voices of how easy it would be. We are now there, on our way, and picking up momentum. So I offer our thanks to TSP.

Client

Had I not been recommended to TS&P and simply came across them, my answers would have been in the exceeded section but I was expecting exceptional and that is what I got!

Client

TSP converted a business idea to an achieved business goal.

Client

An excellent all round service from everyone involved.

10 out of 10 for their clarity, plain English which helped me tremendously.

If I had carte blanche to use any firm, I would use Thomson Snell & Passmore.

Chambers UK

Everyone we had contact with was a pleasure to work with and showed great patience with us through the whole process. Knowing that we were novices they always spent time explaining the situation - putting legal speak into terms we could understand and making sure we knew what was expected of us. By the end I certainly felt I had learnt a lot as well as completing the deal.

Client

Superb professional service. Instant replies to issues and enquiries. Easy access to decision makers.  

Client

Carry on as now; service like that is hard to beat.  

Client

Very professional in terms of driving the deal to a swift and satisfactory conclusion; legally very competent; did what was necessary to get the job done.

Highly professional, not only dealing with the legal details but also with keeping the eyes on the overall commercial objective.

Client

I would recommend any business people who wish to sell their business to use Joanne Gallagher.

Client

I use TS&P as I have a very longstanding relationship. James Partridge has detailed knowledge of the affairs of my organisation and this, coupled with his sharp legal skills, means that I don't look elsewhere

Client

I expect and receive first class advice and service. This is helped by James's knowledge of my organisation and a good chemistry between us. I like to understand the reasons for the advice and James is focussed and succinct when discussing matters over the phone
