David was fantastic throughout the process from initial contact with all Shareholders through to negotiation and communication with the lawyers on the buyer side all the way through to completion of the deal. In addition to offering excellent advice, I was very impressed with how quickly David was able to respond throughout the process, helping to keep up the momentum to get the deal completed. I would thoroughly recommend David and Avery Law LLP to anyone who needs legal advice!

Excellent. I am a business angel supporting multiple early-stage and scale-up businesses. David is very knowledgeable, responsive and priced remarkably cheaply for the value of the insight he brings. Unreserved recommendation.

David has been extremely helpful, his response time was amazing (we were only just receiving quotes back from other lawyers by the time David already completed legal documents for our start up business). He's also provided us with useful contacts. Thank you!

David has been excellent - actually more than excellent. He has been super responsive and has nudged along myself an others involved in the process (our accountants have been terrible and will be fired as soon as we are done - so he has had to put up with a lot!) Couldn't recommend him highly enough :)

What I can say about our experience with David is that it was very positive. David was very pleasant to do business with. He was quick with replying to emails and offered a free consultation to find out what exactly we needed. He was clear with his explanations and helped us to decide what exactly we required. When we decided for him, he overdelivered, on time, and the costs were exactly as agreed beforehand.

David and I spoke immediately after our introduction by Lexoo and I found him to be personable, helpful and a breath of fresh air. He was not stuffy or condescending, was up front about the way Avery Law LLP operates and was clear and fair with the firm's pricing policy. Moreover, the job was turned around quickly, accurately and with value added. I would definitely use Avery Law again and was impressed with every aspect of my dealings with the practice.

Fantastic find, I have already recommended him to several friends, I believe one has asked for his help. The best thing about him? he REPLIES within hours! and tells you in advance the costs he will incur.
