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

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

I really appreciate the effort you and your team have put in and also for the goodwill of keeping the costs down. I certainly hope this to be the start of a long term relationship. I’ve been extremely impressed by you and thank you so much for turning it around quickly. It goes without saying I’d be happy to recommend you.

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

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

An excellent all round service from everyone involved.

Managing Director of Greenstar Hotels PLC

We have worked closely with TS&P for a number of years and have concluded several commercial transactions during that time. The service has always been professional, responsive and reliable.

Client

I would like to say a big thank you for all your efforts on our behalf over the past year. You have been extremely proactive, which was one of our principal requirements, and have taken the time to understand our business; it has been appreciated.

Client

Very personable partners, vast experience in most areas of lawyer business.

Corporate Intermediary

At TS&P I have a contact and we were in deep discussion for hours. There was obviously a personal relationship that built up.

Client

Their commerciality is important - they know where we want to get to.

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
