  • Testimonials:
    " Working with you and Xxxx on this deal has been a revelation to me; we had two solicitors who were dealmakers and with no agenda other that get to completion. Neither of you had any interest in scoring Brownie points off each other
    or blinding the other with legal acumen. At no time was there any rancor
    or anger and you are both to be sincerely congratulated." (Unsolicited comment when acting on an acquisition of a business)

    July 2014 - "Our proposed joint venture with another company looked about to be derailed by purchase of shares technicalities. Following a recommendation from our solicitor, Susan Singleton stepped into the breach and completed in two days what we feared would not happen at all. We can’t recommend her services enough and will be retaining her number on speed dial.” (Gary Oliver, Systema Fire and Security)
