Client

Thank you to Nick Hobden, for the support and advice offered to me during a rather difficult period in my life.

Client

I have used TSP’s Workplace Law updates for number of years in my leadership roles with NCG, Royal British Legion Industries and now with Franksson David Consultancy Services.  In terms of up to the minute content, simple to understand language and ease of use they are by far the best quality updates I have come across as a HR practitioner.  I would strongly recommend them as an essential read to any HR professional.

Client

As one of the largest Multi-Academy Trusts often requiring immediate and reliable legal counsel, we have been so impressed with the services provided by TSP. Having confidence in the advice provided is the most important aspect of a solicitor/client relationship. The very nature of our business means that we seek legal support on a varied number of issues and the team at TSP have always been well equipped to manage that demand.  I cannot recommend them enough.
