...exceptional... I consider her to be a critical member of my extended virtual team, and won’t hesitate to engage with the team on any legal matters.

Debbie Venn, she’s just exceptional! She’s able to distil and deliver complex convoluted framework agreements in a simple clear way that helps everyone involved to understand the key points easily and well detailed.

Debbie Venn managed our initial interview in a very professional and friendly way. She showed a genuine interest in the needs and goals of the client, in order to conduct a deep thorough analysis needed, to produce a quotation. In comparison, other solicitors I had vetted for the work failed to gain my confidence because they were too quick to issue a quotation when they had not understood the full scope of work to be done.
