An excellent outcome and outstaying service from the team at Postlethwaite. Their advice at every stage was clear and they were first class in terms of demystifying what looked at the outset a rather daunting process.

My wife and I have recently transitioned our business into a 100% Employee Owned Trust.We both unreservedly recommend using Postlethwaite solicitors.Right from our initial contact with David Reuben it was clear that this was someone who listened carefully to our plans and explained what is a complex transaction clearly and concisely.David promised a turn key solution and that is exactly what he and his team delivered .As the process progressed, we were introduced to Jo Cunningham who's attention to detail and speed of reply to any question very often outside of normal working hours was amazing .The entire process was completed on time and under budget we were never rushed or felt under pressure. Postlethwaite really do deliver client satisfaction.In summary if you are looking to transact what may well be the biggest step in your company’s journey you need sound clear thoughtful professional advise, in our opinion you need Postlethwaite!Howard and Anna JonesJust Pudding Basins Ltd
