Cordelia did an amazing job. Our case was hard to win, but Cordelia did a splendid job drafting a legal response. In the end, the panel decided in our favor. We won the case.

Cordelia's reply:
Thank you, Simon. It was a pleasure acting for you.

Cordelia has been easy to work with and very responsive to email. She has worked very quickly to get the company registered - we are now awaiting to hear about any objections. Not sure re value for money as it's our first and only time registering a company and via a solicitor so please ignore the stars. We assume the rate was competitive.

Cordelia for me was an easy choice. On our initial phone conversation I could tell straight away that she knew what she was talking about which put me at ease and gave me confidence in her (I had already talked to several solicitors by then and still she stood out). She is great to work with, totally reliable, responds promptly, explains things clearly and on top of that she is just a lovely person! I would highly recommend her to anyone.
