Over a period of some 20 years I have used Mark Carter for legal advice. Always the answers have been provided promptly and efficiently. We have become very reliant on Mark for the provision of legal help and advice whenever required.
The Latham family have used Tees Solicitors and Catherine Mowat over many years. Their and her advice has always been, sound, constructive, and highly professional. Catherine offers a personal service, delivered within a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We always respect her judgement, opinion and advice.
Bursar, Brentwood School
Thank you very much for all your hard work on what has been a protracted and difficult sale, particularly conducted at a distance.
Hilary and John Curley
I just wanted to say a big thank you for the help and practical support and advice you gave throughout what was a protracted selling experience! With a difficult buyer, it was only your level headed advice and direction that stopped me from pulling out at what would have been the wrong time!
Thanks for everything, even with all the set backs and delays I feel very satisfied that you did a great job in getting us in the shop as quick as possible and was very clear in all communications.
Mr and Mrs W
I would like to thank Kirsten and Pat for your excellent professional service in this transaction on our behalf and which further cements an already strong relationship with your firm, which we have experienced over the years, both on a personal and professional basis.
Mr Hugh Birley
We've been clients of Tees all our lives, and my grandmother and great-grandfather before me. We've been looked after by the ever-efficient Allan Wright, Cathy Izzard and Eleanor Worby. Each of them have been efficient, effective, pleasant to deal with and unfazed by our disorganisation!
We approached you after 6 months of difficulties with our old solicitors and we were directed to Jane Winfield who has been tremendous from the offset. She made instant progress, kept us informed on a daily basis, exceeding expectations. The service was excellent and efficient.
Mr and Mrs Baker
Thank you for the excellent service and for dealing so promptly with matters as they arose. We felt that the three of you made an excellent team and were impressed that each of you knew precisely the stage we were at, when we telephoned or wrote to you.
Mrs Isabel Corbett
I just wanted to thank you for all your help in the purchase of our apartment. You and your team have made the process much more straight forward and knowing we had your knowledge and expertise behind us, has made our property purchase journey in France so much less stressful.
John and Barbara Gilmurray
We are very grateful to you for your patience and sound professional advice during the drawn-out assignment process and have no doubt that we will need your services again in the future. We were so fortunate to have Jane Winfield’s help.
Mr Lawrance Lucas
I'm very grateful for the professional service that everyone at Tees has shown me: Cathy Izzard who drew up my late mother’s Will and obtained probate; Toni Chalmers-Smith for care fees planning and Allan Wright for the conveyancing. They're knowledgeable, approachable and have empathy.
My house purchase was fraught with issues and delays. Natacha did an amazing job at keeping things going, indeed our seller's estate agent said that he had never seen a solicitor work so hard for so long to make sure a deal went through. She has been amazing and kept me informed throughout.
Mr Jason Herring, Benfleet Forwarding Ltd
It has been a pleasure working with Lucy Folley and her team. Lucy’s understanding of the complicated process of selling a business became the overriding factor in reaching a completion. Lucy’s guidance and support to all shareholders throughout the sale process has been greatly appreciated.
Ms. D. C.
Caroline Andrews has helped with my divorce and with two separate child arrangement orders. Her advice is easy to understand and she has been a tremendous support to our family during some very tough times. Thank you once again for all that you have done over the years, for me and my kids.
I have often thought back to some of our conversations in 2007 and your wise words on future possibilities. As I approach retirement, I will be left with some choices to make, but am in the fortunate position of being able to make those choices without financial pressure. Thank you.
Alex and Jenny
We were going the through the most challenging appeal process to secure our daughter’s Education Health and Care Plan provision. Polly put together a coherent working document which the Tribunal agreed almost all of. Our daughter started a new school and we’re thrilled with the outcome.
Miss Lauren Addicott
I came to Tees with no knowledge of how a medical negligence claim would work or the machinations of the compensation system. My assigned paralegal, Katheryn Rigg, was consistently helpful, clear, available and empathetic. I am very pleased with not only the end result, but with how swiftly the process was completed.
We've used Mark Carter for years on residential property transactions and planning issues. We've also used Tees for wills, family trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney and company formation. We've found Tees prompt, friendly and efficient; as a retired lawyer, I strongly recommend them.
We would like to thank Abby Westell - her compassionate professionalism, wisdom and support is very much appreciated.
Many thanks again for speed of transaction on acquisition of the lease!! Made all the difference. Can’t tell you how much we both appreciated that.
I would just like to say thank you to Louise Margiotta for all your hard work and support and thought you did an amazing job ... I also thought you were fantastic in court as we achieved pretty much everything we wanted.
Mr Nick Loftus
I have instructed Caroline Metcalf twice on what turned out to be very complex and protracted disputes. Her hard work and determination have ensured we’ve reached a very satisfactory resolution. Caroline is always very responsive, diligent in all she does and very pleasant to deal with.
Mr Jon Tidbury, Ramsden Trailer Conversions
I'd like to say how helpful Sarah Stanyer was. Sarah gave me reassuring and great advice first thing, followed by an excellent email that appears to have made the gentleman in question back down. For the average 'Joe Bloggs' like me with no legal knowledge, it was invaluable.
I was impressed by your prompt responses, your clarity and the way you all kept me on track. I couldn’t have asked for more from the team and I honestly believe I wouldn’t be in such a good place now if it hadn’t have been for you all as a team. A very big thank you.
Mr Glyn Goddard
I have always found Mark to be knowledgeable, responsive, pragmatic and proactive when needed. In the past year we have dealt with a substantial sale by a consortium and a lease renegotiation with a large company tenant. Mark helped us reach a good conclusion whilst avoiding unnecessary fees.
Mr Andrew Rowell, Chairman, Stronghold International Ltd
Mark has worked on the property legal requirements for my Self Administered Pension Scheme. On all occasions that I have required his services I have found him to be prompt and efficient, always considering the client's best interests.
Mr. and Mrs. P
Thank you to you and your team for assisting us with both our purchase and sale. You and your team have been the most professional and efficient team we have ever come across and given that we both deal with conveyancers on a regular basis it is a real testimony to you.
Adrian listens carefully and provides impartial advice which has been invaluable in helping to me reach my retirement and lifestyle goals. I have no hesitation in recommending Adrian, as his people skills are excellent and the advice given is always uncomplicated and succinct.
Mr T & Mrs N Smerdon
Kieron was able to explain things to us in simple terms which we understood and even made pensions sound interesting! You can tell that he loves what he does and really knows his stuff. He has a friendly approachable manner and we look forward to working with him again in the future.
Mr and Mrs W
We've been very impressed by the foresight Gavin has shown, for example, with planning for pensions, in light of the new rules introduced by the government. We’ve been made to think about our approach to finance in a completely new way and Gavin was instrumental in this approach.
You did a great job countering barristers engaged by my then wife, to conclude a reasonable settlement for me at the Court. Thanks very much for your help and advice all those years ago - it has proven to be excellent!
Before our discussions, I felt a bit like someone who had been parachuted into the middle of a minefield; after our discussions, I feel that at least I have been given a mine detector and a map!
All in all, I still can’t thank you enough for all the help, advice and encouragement you gave me at the time of the divorce. I always felt really safe that you would get the best settlement in the nicest possible way.
Mr and Mrs W
Entrusting the accumulated wealth of a lifetime's endeavours is one of the most important decisions a person makes. Our experience with Tees allows us to feel confident that our money is in safe hands.
Mrs Mary Pope
Toni Chalmers-Smith and her colleagues define "where there's a will there's a way". Toni demonstrated tenacity, drive and an ability to think round problems and find solutions to deliver a result. Toni and the team at Tees are a must for anyone considering financial advice.
Mr and Mrs Robin Lincoln
Tim Deeming took me through the settlement process step by step and was a master tactician in the final negotiation, who I was proud to have represent me. Katheryn Riggs gave me all the support to file the claim. Tees draw on their vast experience to bring the very best medical experts to the table.
Mr Colin Keating
St. Ives, Cambridgeshire
Tees as a company and service were fantastic in every respect. The expertise and solutions are brilliant. We had difficult times but Tees took control of everything and the third parties they involved in our case were top of their field - their skills and knowledge were magnificent.
