From initial engagement through to deal completion, Simon Porter guided us through the process of selling our business. He, together with Jessica Williams, covered off all details and handled the mountains of paperwork involved. Throughout, Simon ensured that the best interests of our shareholders were represented, resulting in completion of the deal to the satisfaction of both sellers and buyers.

Emily Pope was and continues to be an incredible solicitor to work alongside. She went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure my case was thoroughly well handled. This meant that I was able to focus on other live events like my health issues at the time. She was always responsive and kept me informed of changes and updates. Her documentation was second to none and all record methods were reassuring. What I valued the most was her empathy and how I felt heard and understood. With regards to fees, they were also very straightforward as to costs so there were no surprises. Where two prior solicitors had failed woefully, Emily rescued my case with the utmost professionalism for which I will be eternally grateful. I've also had the pleasure of working with a couple other solicitors within the firm. Highly recommended.

Brilliant, had a tight deadline and Simon Porter literally bent over backwards to accommodate even though he had other deadlines to meet. Will definitely use again and from my experience of Solicitors so far these guys by far have been the brightest and best. Thank you so much.

I was referred by a client of mine to use Neves and specifically Beth Woodward for my divorce. Beth is about as calm and professional as you are ever going to meet. She allayed fears that I had and was very quick to give me a clear path. Beths approach gave me total faith in her and the process that she knows inside out. She is enormously talented and also very adaptive. I think what I valued most was the empathetic approach and quickly understood how I wanted/needed to be spoken to so the information would be retained. My now ex wife was told not to settle unless the figures were between 80-95%. She used 4 different law firms and a barrister and ended up with a huge outlay in fees. My fees were slightly under that predicted by Beth and my ex and I settle on a percentage under 60%. Beth is the consummate professional who over delivers at a little under her projected costs. I could not be happier. Thank you so much to Beth, Jayne and the rest of the team.
