"I truly appreciate everyone's efforts in completing the transaction very quickly. Everyone was a pleasure to work with and should I be asked to recommend any Solicitors in the UK, Sydney Mitchell will be at the top of the list."
Knoxford Ltd

"We were impressed with Kam from the moment he walked into the room. His professional, friendly, but no nonsense approach was perfect. He grasped the complicated family dynamics surrounding the claim against us, vehement rebuttal of it and our suggested defence immediately.

He explained options regarding the nature of our response in simple terms, very quickly agreeing the wording  there and then. Two letters and only this one meeting saw the claim against us emphatically defeated.

Kam was very professional, concise and gave sound and effective advice. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him and his team at Sydney Mitchell."
