'It is a real pleasure to work with this firm. Communication is prompt and clear, files are available well ahead of the required time, they follow up on every matter, and if I have any additional requests in respect of my responsibilities they are very helpful'

M Devlin


'Working with Jane Winfield at Tees Lew on our commercial law needs was a total game-changer. She knows her stuff and made all the legal information super easy to understand. She was always just a call or email away when we had questions. Big thumbs up to Jane! If you're looking for someone who pays attention to detail, stick to timelines and is approachable, she’s your person'

Caroline & Alan

Bishop's Stortford

'A big thank you Catherine for your help in securing our recent equity release. Your clear and precise speaking made the process very easy'



'A heartfelt thank you for all you have done in preparation for and during the settlement meeting, as well as for your unfailing support along the way, in and out of hours. It is undoubtedly due to your high professionalism if the outcome today has exceeded all expectations; it will be a huge help for us going forward and we will be forever grateful'


Bishop's Stortford

'Sally kept me fully informed at every stage of the process and undoubtedly went ‘the extra mile’ to complete the matter on time. Overall a very professional service for which I am extremely grateful'


Bishop's Stortford

'Helen and Elaine were both brilliant and would highly recommend. Very thorough and had a solution for every situation thrown our way'


'Excitech have been advised by Lucy and her team for almost 20 years. We’ve confidently navigated a multitude of complex events and transactions in our corporate life with their support, including acquisitions, property sales/purchases, demergers, employee-related matters and, ultimately, the sale of the business. We have benefitted from their extensive knowledge in both tax and legal matters, with their expertise shared in a balanced and pragmatic manner. This approach has proven invaluable when negotiating with third parties, enabling deals to be closed and the interests of the company and shareholders protected. Their dedication and commitment to helping the board and shareholders achieve their goals is second to none'

Excitech - Peter

'Lucy is a standout professional; expert in her field, commercially aware, empathetic to business and individual pressures….and a pleasure to work with. She’s absolutely one of our team'

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.

Mr Gough


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 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.

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.

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.

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.

Nordic Sky

Tonbridge, Kent

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.

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.

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.

Jeff Sadler


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.

Peter Bottery

Saffron Walden

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!

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.

Mrs B.


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.

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.

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.

John Latham


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.

Mr Lawrance Lucas

Hunsdon, Herts

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.

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!

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.

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.

Mr Jeganathan


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 W


We've been very impressed by the foresight the team at Tees have 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 Tees were instrumental in this approach.

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.

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.

Mr and Mrs Robin Lincoln

Bishop's Stortford

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.

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.
