Bjorn and his colleagues have been very helpful, patient and overall professional. We are very happy to have come to Avery Law this way and are most certainly pleased with the service we have received.
It's pot luck choosing a lawyer that you've never met but it turns out that luck was on my side. I was selling the goodwill of a chartered accountancy practice. It was relatively straightforward but Bjorn was "super efficient" and ensured that the deadline that we set ourselves was met with relative ease. His explanations were very clear. I can most definitely recommend him.
Bjorn was superb, dealing with all matters in a very efficient and trustworthy way.
I was involved in a private company merger which ultimately did not go ahead. But we selected Bjorn on the grounds of his experience and value for money. He started at a cracking pace before we ended the discussions.
Speedy and attentive! Understood the project specs and completed quickly.
Excellent work, rapid turnaround, and friendly. I'll most definitely call on Bjorn again.
I was pleased to have worked with Bjorn, he acted in a very professional manner and did a great job!
Bjorn got our NDA done very quickly. It wasn't personalised for our needs - but it was very cheap and quick - and we amended it. So no complaints. Would recommend.
Bjorn was great. I had originally been told that this job would cost about £6000. Bjorn completed the task in a couple of days, via email, filled in and submitted forms, and provided me with scanned copies of the paperwork, for the price of a couple of bottles of Krug and a bowl of nuts on Chancery Lane. Good job Bjorn!
Bjorn was flexible and attentive to my requirements throughout the entire process. I never felt awkward or that I was being pushed for time when asking for explanations (this occurred on countless occasions). I cannot speak highly enough of Avery Law and would certainly recommend them without any hesitation.
Excellent work, very responsive lawyer.
Bjorn was efficient and professional for a fair and reasonable fee, not something you can say for most lawyers! Would highly recommend
Bjorn was fantastic, I couldn't have asked for more from him. I would recommend Bjorn to everyone. I had a short time scale to buy a buisness and Bjorn ensured this happened fast and with every corner covered.
Very pleased with the service I received. Highly professional yet good value compared to many other firms I consulted before instructing Bjorn. High recommended!
Thank You very much Bjorn. Your expertise was much appreciated. Thanks for your patience and understanding. Work has been completed 100%. Would certainly recommend your services to others. Many Thanks
Great service, flexible approach and good communication - highly recommended.
Excellent service from Bjorn Benckert - Avery Law LLP Good business understanding and practical recommendations Excellent value for money - Stephen Evans, MD Evans Hart Ltd
super fast and really clear
Bjorn assisted us on a complex sale (exit) of a company involving 3 VC funds and 15 individual shareholders. It was a very intense sale process over a short period of time and Bjorn made a great contribution towards its successful outcome by whole-heartedly engaging in the process by guiding and advising us in a commercial and practical way. I can recommend Avery Law to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a company. Great value for money!
Bjorn helped me establish a limited corporation. Did a great job.
Bjorn certainly looked after our interests, and pointed out any concerns he had with the documentation relating to our impending business transaction, and advised on the best way forward. The whole process was quite painless and I would definitely use Bjorn again for our business needs.
Bjorn was excellent to work with. He got to grips with existing documentation very quickly and prepared the required materials for me in a very short timeframe. He explained everything clearly and in simple terms, something I find many solicitors either can't or won't do! Efficient, high quality and good value.
Highly recommend Bjorn. Very fast to respond and went through everything with me clearly (in laymans terms) and patiently. I wouldn't hesitate in using Bjorn again in the future.
Bjorn was great, I would highly recommend him to all startups.
Great lawyer, great team, fair price. Highly recommended!
Overall, Bjorn was a pleasure to work with, and I wouldn't hesitate to work with him again or recommend him to anyone. He was very prompt to meetings by phone, and super responsive to emails. He explained matters and answered questions in an easy to understand manner, discussed options and consequences of choosing a particular direction, and was very helpful in explaining, in our situation, the process/procedure of an IPO, what's to be expected, not expected, and how to go about our actions.
Bjorn was a supportive solicitor - and gave me a lot of appropriate guidance during a stressful time. He was very quick to reply which was very helpful. Would definitely recommend their services- amazing value for money.
Very helpful, held my hand all the way through the project (merging two companies etc was not something I had had experience of) I was sort of a middle woman between my FD and Bjorn - it was a little complicated in as much as we are an American owned company, so getting documents signed etc was not as easy as could have been. The combining of the two companies and everything that went with it went very well, everything is now filed at Companies House.
Excellent work on a significant, challenging Series A fundraising
Bjorn is a really great professional who helped us with advice and shareholder agreements. He is very helpful and always responds quickly which helped the whole process enormously.
Great working together. Will use Bjorn for corporate legal advice going forward.
Bjorn was ace. Approachable and human, he really helped us pull together the right documents at the right time.
Fantastic knowledge, very speedy and pays a lot of attention to detail. He knew everything without hesitating and we felt comfortable throughout the whole process. Would wholeheartedly recommend him!
I was very pleased with the way Bjorn handled the proposed sale of my business. He totally understood our priorities and was straightforward with us. He refunded all the deposit apart from one hours work when the sale of our business did not go through which was decent of him
Bjorn and his partner David Turney did a super, practical job handling a Series A investment round for one of my portfolio companies, opposite a very challenging private equity investor and their lawyers. Bjorn has excellent knowledge both of the applicable law, and of UK practice on investment transactions.
Bjorn gave me advice on contract I was having issues with. He was quick to respond and answered all of the questions I had. I found him both professional and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Bjorn and would use him again in the future.
Thoroughly enjoyed my short interaction with Bjorn. And, more importantly, he also provided swift and articulate advice. Many thanks.
Excellent advice and service. Very impressed.
Bjorn Benckert helped me with Shareholder Agreement and Service Agreement and thanks to his great support I was able to set up the new UK based branch easily and with no unnecessary difficulties.
Björn was a pleasure to work with. Very straight forward and proactive.
All good, great lawyer, recommended.
I've had the pleasure of working with Bjorn over the past couple of months and I have nothing but positive words to say about him. He's quick, professional and goes above and beyond to deliver a fantastic experience.
Very good service and prompt response received from Bjorn.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Bjorn. He's patient, professional and thorough in understanding and drafting a range of legal documents. I can highly recommend Bjorn and his team!
Bjorn was great. Would use again.
I found Bjorn to be knowledgeable and helpful and wouldn't hesitate to use him again, which I'm sure I will.
Bjorn and his colleagues were quick efficient and helped us with a particularly urgent requirement. Would definitely recommend their services to anyone.
Great service and professional work at a reasonable price. Definitely recommended.
From my initial first enquiry to Bjorn Benckert, I felt that he had a noticeable integrity relating to his legal services. I found him very responsive and professional in dealing with my enquiries. I was very satisfied with the final results and outcome that Bjorn provided for me, creating positive results in a short period of time. Avery Law is very good value for money considering their experience and professionalism.
Bjorn Benckert was very commercially aware and responsive to all my requests. He has a piercing attention to detail and understanding of complex legal issues, both of which he applies to any legal problem. His city background is very noticeable and such Avery Law provides phenomenal value for money. Bjorn and Avery Law comes highly recommended for any corporate work.
Very responsive, great advice and very quick turnaround. I can definitely recommend Bjorn/Avery Law and will use them again if/when I need legal advice relating to our business.
Mr. Benckert is an outstanding lawyer who has a great understanding of how businesses function, where the real issues lie and how to address them, and he is modest and personable, which are refreshing traits for a lawyer to have.
