'Sara Stabler and her team are consistently really strong performers. They have excellent work and it is clear that their clients receive really good service'

Legal 500 UK 2021

"Sara and James are truly excellent exponents of the legal profession and, in terms of ability and incisive thought and delivery, combined with response time, leave contemporaries in some other organisations in the shade."

Legal 500 UK 2021

"Sara Stabler brings a pragmatic approach to litigation, providing realistic solutions for her clients."

Legal 500 UK 2021

"I have worked with Sara Stabler, senior associate at Tees Law, on two matters. One was a complex commercial dispute with a great deal of personal animosity between the parties and the other a challenging trust case. In the trust case, Sara showed a maturity beyond her years, standing up to difficult bullying opponents and, frankly, out-lawyering them. In the other, she conducted the negotiation of a settlement with consummate skill, never overstating her case but arguing with forceful reasoning. In my book, she is definitely one to watch for the future."
