“Thank you for great professionalism over the last few months. It appears that everything I could have reasonably hoped for has been achieved, in no small part due to your efforts. This has been a very stressful time for me but your calm professionalism and patient explanations have made this period far more endurable than it might otherwise have been. I had absolutely no knowledge of this legal process but your clear and informative phone calls and emails have kept me abreast of matters and been something of an education. I am aware that you have worked long hours and you have phoned me late in the day to ensure various deadlines were met.”
Alex Hughes, Markel Law Client
“Since 2005, your firm has assisted us with all matters relating to Employment law. In the 11 years we have only had 1 very minor tribunal claim. This is all thanks to the tireless dedication, passion and commitment of Edward Pearce who took the trouble to understand our business needs and how we operate and is thus able to offer us the best solution in each instance. Edward is one of the reasons our company has grown from 16 staff in 2005 to around 236 today. He together with his colleague, John Waring we are forever indebted to for always assisting us with our numerous requests, I would always recommend their expertise to anyone requiring employment assistance.”
Gaj Ragunathan, Director, Ashton Cares Homes Ltd
“I just wanted to put on record our thanks to Judith Gould for achieving a positive result. Last week Judith helped us to win a ‘simple’ (but costly) sexual harassment case. It was only ‘simple’ because Judith had expertly narrowed it down in preliminary hearings. I do sometimes wonder when she sleeps? But then this is nothing I am not used to from all the years we have worked together.”
Gaby Ackerman, Care Worldwide
“Employee issues can be a minefield, but thanks to Edward Pearce, any issues that we have had to deal with have been done so with a safe a reassuring hand by our side.

Mr & Mrs W, Markel Law Client
“Thank you so much to Judith Gould for your input, patience and attention to this, which has very much helped us to get the result we wanted. This is very much appreciated.

“A great example of a legal business with real purpose, willing to challenge convention…”
Will Shu, Co-founder, Deliveroo
“I would like to say special thank you to Judith Gould who is extremely sharp minded and handled our case extremely well. She was patient, provided clear guidance and never failed to answer my queries, even during the middle of the night or at weekends - she doesn’t seem to sleep at all! Thank you also to Edward Pearce for chairing our meeting, and Keith Haddock for assisting this case through.”
Terry Cheung, Markel Law Client
