An introduction and how if affects your business.
“When I was renewing a lease and required a Commercial Property Solicitor, I called the FSB for direction as I am a member. They directed me to LHS who quickly, following a telephone conversation, provided a quotation. The quote was far more reasonable than numerous other quotations, received from various Commercial Solicitors. I have been advised and communicated with constantly during this process. I have been delighted with the service I have received and I would highly recommend LHS, Louise Scott-Nichols and team without hesitation. Thank you for making this process easier than expected.”
Sue Burgess-Lock, Client Services Director, Rejuvenate
“I just wanted to put on record my sincere thanks to Deborah Britstone for the fantastic work you have done on my behalf. The workload you have undertaken is phenomenal, and seemingly whatever time of day or night I have contacted you, you have always responded and been able to advise or provide the guidance I needed.”
Lee Bruckshaw, Chief Superintendent
“We went to LHS Solicitors LLP following a recommendation from a colleague who runs a business via another website – LHS had prepared the legal notices for that website (i.e. terms and conditions, disclaimer etc.). I am very pleased that we did. We have two websites, for TaxationWeb and Taxbookshop respectively – LHS updated the legal notices for the first website, and prepared completely new legal notices for the second site. We were very pleased with the work on both websites – it was done both quickly and very efficiently. Louise Scott-Nichols was extremely helpful, and the service was friendly. Overall, we were very satisfied and pleased with the end result.”
Mark McLaughlin CTA (Fellow) ATT (Fellow) TEP, Director and Managing Editor, TaxationWeb Ltd
“Thank you for great professionalism over the last few months. It appears that everything I could have reasonably hoped for has been achieved, in no small part due to your efforts. This has been a very stressful time for me but your calm professionalism and patient explanations have made this period far more endurable than it might otherwise have been. I had absolutely no knowledge of this legal process but your clear and informative phone calls and emails have kept me abreast of matters and been something of an education. I am aware that you have worked long hours and you have phoned me late in the day to ensure various deadlines were met.”
Alex Hughes, LHS Client
“Since 2005, LHS Solicitors has assisted us with all matters relating to employment law. In the 11 years we have only had one very minor tribunal claim. This is all thanks to the tireless dedication, passion and commitment of Edward Pearce who took the trouble to understand our business needs and how we operate and is thus able to offer us the best solution in each instance. Edward is one of the reasons our company has grown from 16 staff in 2005 to around 236 today. He together with his colleague, John Waring we are forever indebted to for always assisting us with our numerous requests, I would always recommend their expertise to anyone requiring employment assistance.”
Gaj Ragunathan, Director, Ashton Cares Homes Ltd
“I just wanted to put on record our thanks to Judith Gould and Ben Roberts for achieving a positive result. Last week Judith helped us to win a ‘simple’ (but costly) sexual harassment case. It was only ‘simple’ because Judith had expertly narrowed it down in preliminary hearings. I do sometimes wonder when she sleeps? Ben too guided and supported us expertly and skilfully during the disciplinary process to reach the outcome we desired, safely. But then this is nothing I am not used to from all the years we have worked together.”
Gaby Ackerman, Care Worldwide
“I was arrested, suspended and was subject to national media exposure. Following a recommendation, I instructed Dee Scott from LHS, who immediately gripped the key issues of my case and proactively took control. Dee not only gave clear and intelligible advice throughout, but crucially provided guidance through some of the most challenging times, ensuring that I remained mentally strong enough to cope with the various key phases of the respective two investigations - finalised in my acquittal in respect of any criminal or disciplinary conduct. I have now returned back to work as a Superintendent and can positively move forward in my career. I would have absolutely no hesitation in personally recommending Dee Scott to any colleagues, friends or family.”
Superintendent, LHS Client
“Employee issues can be a minefield, but thanks to Edward Pearce and LHS, any issues that we have had to deal with have been done so with a safe a reassuring hand by our side. The service provided is second to none no matter whether this issue or question is a simple one or a complex one and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending the service to anyone.”
Samantha Wiltshire, HR & Admin Manager, Eurogate Logistics Limited
“I have recently had some work done by Alex Woolf of LHS Solicitors, and found him to be polite, professional and extremely efficient. I was delighted with the outcome, and would have no hesitation in recommending this company.”
Beverley Elliott, LHS Client
“Could not have helped more... Gareth was a star from start to finish.”
Mr & Mrs W, LHS Client
“Thank you so much to Judith Gould for your input, patience and attention to this, which has very much helped us to get the result we wanted. This is very much appreciated. It was a pleasure meeting you and despite the stress of the matter, you made the entire process far easier and manageable for me.”
Wayne Lipman, LHS Client
“Dee has great tactical judgement, clear focus and superb client handling skills. Her results acting for professionals are second to none. She always goes the extra mile for her clients.”
Leading Police QC
“A great example of a legal business with real purpose, willing to challenge convention…”
Will Shu, Co-founder, Deliveroo
“I would recommend LHS to anyone if they need legal help or advice because of the friendly and relaxed but professional approach experienced by us from your solicitor."
“I would like to say special thank you to Judith Gould who is extremely sharp minded and handled our case extremely well. She was patient, provided clear guidance and never failed to answer my queries, even during the middle of the night or at weekends - she doesn’t seem to sleep at all! Thank you also to Edward Pearce for chairing our meeting, and Keith Haddock for assisting this case through. I would highly recommend LHS Solicitors.”
Terry Cheung, LHS Client
