Our client testimonials

“After 30 years of running my own company I was approached by a larger group that wanted to buy me out. The whole process of selling your life’s work is in itself hard work. I certainly couldn’t have achieved the results I did without the knowledge, experience, care and support that SE Solicitors provided me. The actual Share Purchase Agreement was a 90 page document and I’m very pleased I had such a great team checking through it. Hitendra kept me very much in the loop with what was happening and was always available to go through any concerns. The sale went through and I’m extremely grateful to Hitendra and his team for the high quality advice, support and service they provided to me. “

“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. With SE-Solicitors we don’t have to hold on the telephone, in a queue to be put through to the wrong person – we call through and they answer. The firm delivers!”
