I am delighted to recommend Chris whom I have known for a number of years since appointing him as one or the legal advisors with the IoD's Directors' Advisory Service. Chris can advise on a broad range of legal matters, which has been a great asset for the Service. His knowledge and friendly approach have won him many a praise from IoD members and staff alike. It was a pleasure to work with Chris.

Mark Bleach – Deputy Chairman, Jubilee Market, Covent Garden, London.

 

When we first appointed Chris, our company was in crisis with errant directors, complex lease disputes, shareholder and corporate governance issues. Taking a pragmatic approach to legal matters with a focus on strategy and end results, his unbiased analysis, identification of risk and honest opinion has always put us in the best possible position, delivering excellent results. Chris has been instrumental in transforming our company fortunes and through his diligence and professionalism, has ensured that we have every confidence we always receive first- rate representation. I cannot recommend his services highly enough.

I have been fortunate to have had Chris Browne’s advice on a wide variety of commercial legal matters over recent years and I have been consistently impressed with the quality support that he has been able to provide. I have found that he works very efficiently to understand each new situation and then develops and delivers practical solutions that have often led to  very favourable outcomes for us. It’s very reassuring as an owner of an SME to know that you are getting excellent legal advice at a reasonable cost.

Marcus Hume-Humphreys – Director, Root 6 Limited

 

I found working with Amanda refreshing; she has an innate ability to simplify complex issues that can appear opaque at first glance. Amanda’s quick grasp of a subject allows her to quote accurately and she delivered all of our documentation promptly and on budget. Amanda was happy to discuss and rework some elements of documentation as subsequent negotiations demanded. Amanda’s work helped us to conclude a protracted and difficult negotiation and I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending her.

May I take this opportunity to say thank you very much to Amanda Heath for her hard work, speed and general enthusiasm to conclude the transaction in an efficient and professional manner. The people with whom we were negotiating, and I quote, told me that “there would be no way our law firm would turn something of this nature around so quickly” – congratulations, maybe another client could be coming your way!

Summerfield Browne Solicitors provided legal guidance in relation to a project in Zambia. They got to grips with the structural and contractual issues very quickly and drafted contractual documentation based on this analysis. We didn’t need to request any amendments to their first draft documentation! I would certainly recommend their services.

Tim Hardcastle - Chairman, F2X Group Limited

 

We worked with Deborah on a critical financial deal.  

 

At short notice she was up and running very quickly and provided us with a high level of confidence that not only would our interests be looked after but that the deal would be executed at speed.  She exceeded our expectations.

 

She broke the mould of a typical legal engagement.  She became extension of our team providing us with absolute clarity on issues and progress even chasing down the other side in a firm but friendly manner.

 

We would highly recommend Deborah and would not hesitate to work with her again.

Amanda Gage - Director, Route Marketing Limited

 

We recently had two customers who refused to pay our fees. I instructed Anthony Reeves at Summerfield Browne and in both cases he cut through their unconvincing reasons for not paying and both were resolved before a court hearing. I was impressed with the efficient and personal service provided by Summerfield Browne.

Robert Grays - Managing Director, Prospero Group Limited

 

I instructed Lisa Shocker of Summerfield Browne a few months ago to act on our behalf in a number of litigation and contractual matters.  I have been hugely impressed with her work, namely her attention to detail combined with the speed and efficiency at which she gets back to me.  Overall her professionalism and client care has impressed me, and I would highly recommend her.

Shirley Cottam - Virtual Office Box

 

I approached Summerfield Browne with no pre-existing knowledge of their services or background. I needed a Services Agreement drafting for my small but rapidly growing business.  Summerfield Browne achieved not only this within 72 hours, but have subsequently addressed all my proposed edits and queries within a very tight timescale and continues to be supportive.    I will be recommending Summerfield Browne to all my Clients and Associates.
