Partner & Director of Legal Engineering
I went through an extremely difficult litigation with my business partners, and spoke to a number of legal firms. Ihsane, who was shortlisted for England Woman Lawyer of the year, was recommended to me. My initial contact was Seth whose professionalism, transparency, and friendliness gave me confidence. Then, when I spoke to Ihsane, she quickly grasped the very complex circumstances of my situation and got me straight away. She meticulously went through a large amount of evidence and turned what I was thinking but unable to articulate and express into an outstanding written format. I was incredibly impressed that Ihsane was able to see aspects of my case that I was blind to, and that no one else suggested to me.
Her hard working and tactically astute team worked tirelessly to ensure I had the opportunity for the best outcome possible, while constantly giving me reassurance.
Not only is work and outcome excellent but they are a pleasure to deal with. Few sentences seem inadequate to express my appreciation for your effort on my behalf. You stood up for me, and I am truly grateful for helping me to move on.
Through their thorough and focused service with a personal touch, both Ihsane Elidrissi and Hamza Sekkar ensured that the experience was as painless as possible.
They made sure to take the time to get us comfortable in navigating some of the more challenging aspects of the process, and fought hard on our behalf to protect our interests for the long term.
A pleasure to work with, and we look forward to continuing the relationship as our business grows.
