Recent clients have said the following about Anna:

"Hello Anna. Thank you very much for your time and valuable advice yesterday, it's great to get some straight answers for a change. Hopefully we will be in touch soon or at least at some point in the near future."

 

"Anna was really good, I will definitely recommend her to others, and would use her services again myself with no hesitation"

 

"Anna communicated with me using plain English with none of the legal jargon that most solicitors tend to use and was very patient in answering the questions I had. She went on to draft a standard set of terms and conditions that were then tailored to suit my business' needs and it was done professionally and extremely thoroughly.

Anna is now taking my business through the trademarking process to protect its name which I am really excited about. 

I cannot recommend Anna and AMD highly enough for their hard work, patience and professionalism in creating work that will massively aid in the development of my business."

 

“Dear Anna and Grant,

I am writing to thank you both for the hard work you put in during our recent merger. I am very grateful for the effort you put in and thank you for the late hours you worked trying to deliver to the timescales that were being asked.

I always felt that you were part of our extended team and it felt very reassuring knowing that you had our back. Your attention to detail and ability to manage the process were excellent and one area that you re-wrote in one of the agreements could end up saving us a lot of money over the next three years.

I have no hesitation in recommending AMD and will gladly provide a reference if you ever need one.”
