William, thank you so much for your excellent service in relation to my recent employment Settlement Agreement. I was impressed and reassured by the thorough approach and attention to detail you showed throughout. Having reviewed the original offer proposed by my former employer you explained this to me carefully, ensuring I understood the implications of each section and individual clause. You also highlighted aspects that you felt might be improved upon and assisted me in negotiations concerning these. The final Agreement arrived at was significantly better from my perspective as a result, not only financially but in a range of other aspects and the advice and assistance you provided was pivotal in achieving this. Mr C

Poppy made us feel very comfortable.

Considering we were all in lockdown at this time, everything was carried out efficiently. I found Rachel to be a very friendly and efficient person, easy to speak to and she explained everything very clearly.

Really pleased with Will's assistance on my case. A super quick turnaround with clarity, guidance and support on hand though the whole process. Definitely recommend! Ms C

I was made to feel very confident and well looked after and never had to chase for updates. Many thanks for such care and consideration. W Jones

As the matter gained momentum and deadlines loomed closer, Amy Husk went above and beyond to facilitate completion, especially given obstacles due to Covid-19 and, more impactful, Christmas holidays. The desired outcome was achieved aided by her commitment. Jenny Santos, Choose Leisure Limited.

Poppy was very courteous and patient. Mr and Mrs Rouse

It is very rare in buying and selling houses to say at the end of the process "well that went smoothly with no real issues or problems" but that is what I said and it was largely down to Girlings, so a massive Thank you.

Mr Busette was very kind and considerate to me and made me feel valued and respected. I felt he had all my interests at heart and was also warm and friendly. Mrs Pleace
