Girlings have been invaluable in helping us navigate our way through the company acquisition process, educating us where necessary and dealing with business owners and their advisers. Client

Chris Brightling has always been very supportive and co-operative. On the two large transactions that he has worked with us on, he has been extremely calm and organised in getting the deal over the line and always working with a smile on his face. No question is too difficult for him to take on and he is always very accommodating. Client

We feel that Girlings have been the first firm to understand how we work and also explain legal terminology in plain English. Nothing is too much trouble for the individuals we have dealt with and they always respond promptly with the information we require. Client

Throughout this process, I highly valued your input, your support and your timely responses. You were always very courteous and professional. I will definitely recommend your services to anyone that may need you. Thank you again for your professional services. Private banking professional

I cannot recommend Paul McAleavey at Girlings Solicitors enough. Despite my complex case and English being my second language, he has been extremely patient and made the whole process a lot easier for me to understand. His friendly approach made me feel at ease throughout this stressful process while his determination and professionalism led us to achieve a favorable settlement. I could not have asked for a better service. Thank you!

I found I could get in contact with Julie Smith at any point of my proceedings. Julie and her team were friendly, informative, always there with me at every point of the purchase and in these times of uncertainty I was kept up to date every step of the way. I will definitely promote Girlings to my family and friends. Maggie Yexley
