The diverse task has been tackled with great energy and knowledge – meeting each mutually agreed deadline, and all within the original quoted budget. From day one, Suzanne’s willingness to be challenged and debate during the process of compiling our documentation quickly demonstrated to us her professionalism and competency.

“Suzanne had been highly recommended to me by people in my network so when a legal issue came up within my business I had no hesitation in immediately asking Suzanne for help. As a small business owner I found her service second to none. She is super efficient, knowledgeable and prepared to go the extra mile for you. What also makes her brilliant to deal with is that she is straightforward, down to earth and just a lovely lady! All in all – an invaluable service.”

“Suzanne is extremely approachable, speaks plain English and gives me a very reasonably priced quote and sticks to it. I never had to chase her for information, in fact she is one of the most proactive, dynamic and warm professionals I have worked with. I would, and do recommend her work to others whole heartedly.”

“Suzanne has been prompt, efficient, patient and always available when I have needed to speak to her and her jargon-free manner meant I was able to understand all the legalities behind the documentation that was drafted for me. I would most definitely recommend Suzanne to my colleagues and I will be for sure taking up more of Suzanne’s services in the future.”

“Suzanne has been a godsend, helping us draw up listing agreements, website terms of use, privacy policy and e-commerce terms and conditions. She offered great advice and turned my ramblings into clear, concise and water tight legal documents all with efficient, friendly, expert and affordable service. I plan to use her services again soon and would recommend her highly.”

“Suzanne has helped make launching The Lemon Club straight forward and jargon-free. She provided easy-to-read licensing and affiliate agreements, membership terms and website Ts & Cs. We wouldn’t go anywhere else if we needed legal advice in the future. She’s also exceptionally dedicated, sending one critical agreement at 10pm on Christmas Eve! And her prices are excellent. Thank you, Suzanne!”

“Suzanne came along just when I really needed practical friendly legal advice. The consultancy agreement that she drafted for me was exceptional and covered all the angles, including areas I hadn’t even thought about. I now feel much more secure in my relationship with my consultant, safe in the knowledge that there is a proper contract in place defining expectations, and safeguarding the future. Suzanne turned around my request promptly and provided flexibility and acute legal knowledge. I would highly recommend her services.”

“Suzanne did a great job in drafting agreements for our business. She was well-informed, but challenging, which enabled us to get the right agreement drafted, not what we initially thought we needed. The peace of mind and protection that Suzanne has given us is priceless – however, we were very surprised to find out how affordable she was.”

Birgitte Lydum, founder of Baby Beamers Limited

“Suzanne has helped me with all the legal content for my website as well as my manufacturer contracts, and she has consistently gone above and beyond what I as a new business expected from a lawyer. She is professional in her manner, yet very approachable. She knows her stuff, is very proactive, quick to respond over email and phone, and knows how to explain what’s going on in layman’s terms.”

“I’m so lucky to have found Suzanne. Her involvement in our franchising has made all the difference to us making it happen. Suzanne took the time to understand the business and asked lots of questions to ensure we had considered every business and legal aspect of franchising. She really understood the pressures of a small business. She delivered as promised, responded very quickly to emails, didn’t confuse us with legal jargon and was very fair and clear with the costs. After 4 years and 3 other solicitors I have finally found one I can recommend and that I will use again.”

“Suzanne was a great person to work with on our licensing agreement. She was able to interpret our requirements, without the need for us to understand complicated legal jargon. She delivered documents quickly and efficiently and revisions were made overnight when we had a deadline. Suzanne has offered us support and guidance over and above what we anticipated and she provides a service which is friendly and affordable.”
