The Legal 500 2019

Accessible and friendly, advice always positive and pragmatic, entirely trusted through years of service with Nicola Plant and her predecessor, Simon Brown.

Client

The advice and support from the initial phone call through to the completion of the document was clear, thorough and very efficient. I felt I received a personal service tailored to my needs

At the first meeting, they listened carefully to my needs and clearly explained the options available to me and how this could be achieved. I left the meeting with a clear understanding of what to do next  

Client

Thank you for providing such clear advice and executing this in such a painless and professional way.  I don’t think I can recall the last time someone did some professional work for me where there were no typos or mistakes, or where I didn’t have to chase and do part of the work myself  

Client

Nicola Plant very quickly understood the need, and gave us confidence in the proposed solution by explaining very well the legal language in simple terms.

The service Nicola provided was highly professional; her flexibility with timescales was especially appreciated

Client
