The Legal 500 2017

I have been very impressed with your professional desire to find an agreed solution out of court, without doubt it is the best option if both parties can agree.

Client

“Kirstie was helpful and very pleasant from the start. She gave me useful, informal advice before we agreed a formal legal relationship and I valued this very much.” 

Client

Thanks again for helping us find a route through our latest, and hopefully final thorny problem, after what had become a tortuous series of exchanges between our solicitors. As before, you skilfully helped us through finding a solution to what was a far more complicated problem than certainly I had previously understood
