Technology is empowering clients to expect more from solicitors and elXtr allows a range of services to be delivered in an innovative and efficient manner at an affordable price point.”
“The information listed on elXtr has been invaluable to us and at a very reasonable price. I only wish I knew of their service when setting up my business. They cover the key legal documents in business that are important to us, and had allowed us to learn about other areas in business we had not yet considered.”
“We contacted LHS via the FSB legal help line, knowing nothing about the company. Our enquiry was treated with speed and efficiency by Louise and Montarnna but above all, with human interest and sympathy. They were people who listened and not anonymous detached voices on the end of a phone. It helped that our interpretation of the legal issue was correct but even so their take up of the important points was quick and their response about the points of law was emphatic. Their fast action in confirming the legal status should not only stop our dispute from escalating, but should kill it stone dead. Many thanks.”
BL Marks, LHS Client
“Helena, thank you very much for this. Have looked through my emails and we did discuss things with a long term sickness employee about 2 years ago. You were brilliant then as you are being again!”
Marcus Brasier, Managing Director, b3 jobs ltd
“Over the last few months I have had cause to seek advice via my FSB membership in relation to employment issues. I have had advice initially from Tina Din and more lately from Ethan Peters and Richard Streeter. The service from all of the above has been second to none and delivered in a professional objective manner.
Once Tina was no longer available, I have been advised by Ethan and Richard in relation to investigations and disciplinary meetings regarding some of my staff team. Both Ethan and Richard provided excellent professional advice and equally as importantly provided me with clear thinking at a time of great stress. At one time, Ethan was advising me regarding a number of people at the same time.
One case was extremely complicated as it involved three concurrent but unconnected processes; grievance, investigation and disciplinary. Richard was able to support me to extract the facts from many pages of complicated and often seemingly conflicting evidence to arrive at a conclusion. This involved him reviewing a multi page dismissal letter that I drafted, in fact he said that he often has to get clients to write more and in my case he had to edit it down!!!
I recommend FSB membership to many of my contacts and this is for one reason alone, the access to and the quality of the legal advice provided.
I have just spoken to Richard regarding a reference request from one of those who was subject to disciplinary action, he called me back within 3 minutes, listened to me, analysed the situation and provided advice with a rationale. When I spoke to Richard, I thanked him personally for his support and professional service and I asked if there was any way that I could pass on my comments to his line manager, hence this email.
I would be grateful if you could pass on my comments to Richard, Ethan and Tina.”
Care Home Owner, LHS Client
“From start to finish the advice given from the team at LHS was superb. I needed guidance having never dealt with such complex issues and was aware that without this I could seriously compromise the situation in hand.
I would without hesitation recommend LHS to anyone being an individual or company that needed legal assistance.
Thank you so much!”
Dee Bird, LHS Client
“Montarnna was extremely helpful in drawing up new terms and conditions for our clients and contractors. She was very approachable and kept us informed at all stages. We are extremely happy with the service we received from LHS Solicitors. Thank you.”
Jacqueline Cox, LHS Client
“I recently had several dealings with Tahira from your legal advice line whilst working for a client of mine. We were undergoing a restructure and needed some support on a redundancy situation. My client is a member of the FSB hence we made contact.
I just wanted to pass on my sincere thanks for the excellent support and service that we received over a period of several weeks. There were a number of times I had reason to call Tahira - she always called me back promptly, provided numerous templates and fact sheets for our use and ultimately helped us to undertake this process in a compliant and professional manner.
Having spent years working in large corporates and battling with internal HR & legal departments with these sorts of matters it was a pleasure to work in this way with the FSB.”
“LHS were absolutely brilliant in assisting with TUPE – they gave me so much advice and support but only actually charged me for the drawing up of the settlement agreements for each of the people. I can’t praise them highly enough.”
“Thank you Louise for all you have done. Your good humour, professional attention to detail and advice have very much helped to ease the process. It will always be a stressful time. It was good to know you protected our interests and you were always there to help.”
David Gomm, Kandor Modelmakers
"At very short notice we required a specific contract drafted for a new client. My query was dealt with by Montarnna Gorringe. Received the contract the next day, exactly what we wanted. An excellent service, second to none! Efficient, professional and all the staff I dealt with helpful and courteous. Highly recommended."
Paul Carne, Operations Director, CHC Waste Facilities Management Ltd
"I’m writing this email to express my thanks for the wonderful work Mona Marashi has been doing. We have been seeking advice with regards to a number of cases through our FSB membership, and Mona has always been thorough, precise and patient in her attitude. In particular over the course of the past few days we have been dealing with a particularly difficult matter, and the manner in which Mona has assisted us has been outstanding. Were it not for the support provided, I would honestly have been at a loss as to how to proceed with this particular case. I therefore felt that the least I could was express my formal thanks to Mona, as well as inform you of the great work that she and your firm are doing."
“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
"We have just completed a challenging employment matter and sought advice on three separate occasions. The team who supported us were very helpful and gave us a lot of reassurance that what we were doing was both compliant and appropriate. I just wanted to take this opportunity to let you know about this, and to thank you for encouraging us to take this service up, which has proved most valuable."
“Since 2005, LHS Solicitors has assisted us with all matters relating to Employment law. In the 11 years we have only had 1 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 and 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

Will Shu, Co-founder, Deliveroo
“Rachael Brown, Suzanne Hassan and all of the solicitors at LHS do a sterling job for the FSB. I would recommend LHS Solicitors to anybody who needs a solicitor. I really felt like everyone talked to me on the same wavelength and cared about my plight. Many thanks to you all.”
Anne Weston, LHS Client
“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
