What our clients say

Sundeep inherited a case from a colleague who left after spending over three years on it. He got up to speed very quickly and pushed the case on through several court hearings, appointing some excellent Barristers along the way. His calm professional and totally unflappable nature and use of simple language to communicate some seemingly bizarre court procedures and rulings was the only reason that we continued with the claim, eventually recovering a substantial sum, and a significant proportion of our costs. Sundeep was never afraid to give us advice which was contrary to what we wanted to hear, but eventually his belt and braces approach leaving no avenue unexplored meant an ultimately successful outcome. Sundeep and his team at Sydney Mitchell have been excellent and, although we hope to avoid any future litigation, we would not hesitate to use him and the firm again.


...The way in which you have gone about your craft, has left us more than satisfied and to achieve the outcome which you have, is far better than we ever anticipated.

I would gladly give reference to any other potential clients, as right from our very first meeting, we felt that engaging your services, left us feeling confident in our position and that having you on board was a huge weight off our shoulders..
