What people say about us

Legal 500 UK 2021

‘I found the practice to be very effective and professional and I did feel that I was dealing with a highly professional company and team of individuals. I felt that the costs were transparent and that you offered fantastic advice before I even instructed your firm on this project. I used Tees Law for a range of legal matters and I always felt there was a relevant professional available to speak to me.‘

Legal 500 UK 2021

‘The lawyer handling our lease negotiation took us, step by step through all the lease provisions and issues thereby safeguarding us, where necessary, with agreed amendments. She also assisted both sides with workarounds and solutions to some lease issues such as level of service charge provisions.’

Legal 500 UK 2021

‘I have always found Tees to be highly efficient, very commercially minded, and capable of providing practical solutions to their clients’ problems.’

Legal 500 UK 2021

‘Kay Piper’s work is comprehensive, clear, and goes above and beyond – always. She is always incredibly helpful, ensures she keeps me informed of all stages, and I am never unsure of where I stand legally. I have had to use other solicitors previously and have always found the experience slightly anxiety-ridden – not so with Kay. I would simply not consider using another solicitor while she is still working.’

Legal 500 UK 2021

‘Alex’s keen and thorough understanding of the law was apparent throughout, leading to a smooth and successful purchase, and a large financial saving in part (Farm Purchase)’

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.
