This team really cares; they take the time to understand your issue properly. You never feel rushed and they always have your wellbeing at heart. As experts in this field, and with the firm only specialising in this area, they are technically excellent.

Good, clear, honest advice from a small, highly effective team. Clients benefit from a highly personalised service and specialist advice; and they know they can speak to the team whenever they need to, and get top-quality, up-to-the minute advice. I highly recommend them.

Dedicated almost solely to solicitors’ disciplinary matters, so that the team has a granular understanding of both the SRA and the SDT.

A real open, friendly approach that left me feeling very comfortable and able to ask any questions/float any ideas.

Andrew Blatt has very strong, deep knowledge of the SRA investigation process, and the rules and the case law surrounding it, as well as good communication, a down-to-earth approach, and knowledge of the case handlers at the SRA – he focuses on delivering a great result.

Andrew Blatt was excellent – guided me expertly through the process and helped achieve an outstanding outcome through his knowledge of the law and the regulator.

Senior consultant Robert Forman is very much a solicitor’s solicitor, and extremely knowledgeable and pragmatic in his approach.

Nicholas Trevette was personable and easy to talk to – always on the end of the phone and incredibly reassuring.
