Speedy, practical, thorough

Client

Good expert service, well delivered, and with appropriate sensitivity to urgent issues.

Client

Alisa was very helpful, with efficient concise advise. This helped in securing our purchase of the commercial property.

Client

Thank you very much for the hard work and getting this done under such tight deadlines. Thomson Snell & Passmore nailed it again!

Client

Alisa kept us informed of progress, dealt with our concerns, was not intimidated by other party, agreed deed of variation that protects shareholders' interests

Client

I just wanted to say thanks TS&P and particularly to Alisa for all her hard work on helping us acquire our latest restaurant. We know it was a long and frustrating one and probably not made any easier for you by our inexperience! The hardwork has only just begun for us but please do come and see it or eat sometime.

Client

Thank you everyone particularly Alisa for the swiftest and most painless conveyances.  I have no doubt of its complexities that you have dealt with so professionally.

Client

Thanks both for chasing, working, fighting and staying sane!

Client

I cannot thank each of you enough for your good faith, composure, understanding, resilience, perseverance, and endurance with regard to this Lease. I am joyful and a bit shocked that we actually completed this (deceptively simple, almost utterly impossible) deal.

Client

Sticks n Sushi have worked with Alisa at Thomson Snell & Passmore from our first restaurant acquisition in the UK 10 years ago in Wimbledon. Since that time we have developed an excellent professional relationship with her and she has assisted us with all of our eight subsequent restaurant openings. Alisa’s ability to understand businesses and the bigger picture have been priceless in our development. We both work hard to meet our required times frames. She is efficient and responsive not only to us but also when dealing with other lawyers and property agents and provides sound pragmatic legal advice. As a business seeking further growth we look forward to the next 10 years of working with Alisa!

Sticks'n'Sushi - Andreas Karlsson, Group CEO

Alisa Sweeney is knowledgeable, thorough, determined, detail-focused, and relentless in pursuing what is best for her clients.  Her cheerful temperament and unfailing work-ethic are an incredible asset to those who engage her. Her contract analysis is razor-sharp, her responses are insightful, and her delivery is crisp!  It is a pleasure working with her and the results she achieves are optimal.  I heartily and unequivocally recommend her services.

Paris Baguette - Jack Moran, Chief Executive Officer

Alisa Sweeney at Thomson Snell & Passmore looked after the negotiation of a new pub lease in 2020 for us. She and her team did a great job in terms of communication and making the process as quick and efficient as possible. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone else, and indeed this is now the third project we have engaged her on in the last 4 years.

The Tiger Tavern - Alex Macnutt, Director

Alisa had done work for me in the past, and I was impressed with the quality and speed of her work. Alisa is very good at what she does. She knows her stuff, but is pragmatic, and she pushes things through in a timely way; including the other side.  I also do not get the feeling that she is running up extra fees. Speedy, practical, thorough.
