Our client testimonials

“Many times in the last 3 months you have been the reason I have carried on with this messy and many times petty agreement. You have always been quick and to the point and so much better than the buyer’s solicitor. I’m sure I will been SE again but definitely not for one of these! “
Client 2023
“Hitendra Patel was the partner in charge. I have dealt with numerous corporate partners in large London firms over the years and no one comes close to his ability, intellect, commercial acumen and work ethic. He is a very humble, calm, soft spoken but determined individual who will fight your corner with rational and commercial arguments with great success.”
Client, The Legal 500 2024
“We have worked very closely with Andrew Woods and Andrew Querelle on complex matters for several years. Both are highly efficient and knowledgeable – they get things done.
