Alex and Louise Goodwin recently acted for me in relation to a commercial dispute which resulted in a multi-million pound payment of damages and costs to me.

I would definitely recommend their services.”

Alex has assisted myself and a number of my commercial property clients, on a range of property matters, from lease renewals through to property sales. I have found Alex’s knowledge to be second to none, providing reasoned advice, yet approaching matters sensibly in order to arrive at a solution. I would not hesitate recommending him to any of my clients.”

“When we decided to sell our company Freeman Fisher came highly recommended and although we did have conversations with other companies we immediately felt at ease with Gary Black and his team. Daniel Rodgerson headed up the team to assist and guide us through the Due Dilgence process and ensure all information was collated in an efficiently and timely manner. Gary, Daniel and the rest of the team were on hand to offer reassurance at times when things seemed to ‘slow down’. Every effort was made to gain the information needed throughout, without intrusion into our day to day running of the business, which was appreciated.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Freeman Fisher in the future.”

Having used Gary both in private practice and Inhouse I am well aware of his capabilities and would always use him as a sounding board before embarking on any venture”
“Just a brilliant service from start to finish – unpretentious and highly effective. Dan is a pleasure to deal with and always presents his advice in a clear and commercial manner. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Freeman Fisher.”
“Well we finally got there, I just wanted to really thank the team at Freeman Fisher for all the help. I think without your decisive input on the transaction we would have failed. We wish you well for the future.”
“Daniel Rodgerson was ever present, working all hours to get the deal done. His attention to detail and grasp of all the documents was hugely impressive and his tenacity – particularly in the latter stages – was much appreciated.
Gary Black was always there in the background guiding the whole operation. He stepped in when required, most particularly towards the end of the process, with decisive and clear advice, which gave us the confidence to sign on the dotted line.
All together a great effort by Gary and his team at Freeman Fisher, which enabled us to achieve our objective in successfully selling our business.”
“Gary, Daniel, and the team handled the recent sale of our longstanding care business. Although the business itself wasn’t too complicated, it turned out that the negotiations surrounding warranties and indemnities was. Thankfully, the team at Freeman Fisher are very good at what they do. Each time the buying team created a ‘speed bump’ in the road, the team were able to deal with it as if it were not there. We were always consulted with and offered expert advice. We ended up with an agreement that offered us watertight protection and the minimum of exposure. Finally, we would like to thank all at Freeman Fisher for the warm, welcoming and friendly way we were always met with.”

“Gary and Melissa helped make an extremely complicated legal process not only understandable but manageable. Their dedication and no nonsense approach helped get the deal over the line and definitely took some of the stress away from us!”
We recently required support with a legal issue and contacted Freeman Fisher for assistance. The service received from Melissa (the lawyer assigned to deal with our project) has been second to none. In particular Melissa has provided a truly responsive service which has been delivered in an accessible manner; helping us to find a positive way forward in relation to the issue concerned. We would highly recommend Freeman Fisher for its responsiveness and client-centered approach to any organisation needing legal assistance.
Unreserved recommendation for all of the team at Freeman Fisher. We engaged them recently when our organisation was acquired: Dan, Melissa, Kin, Sinead, Gary, Jonathan and all of the team were absolutely terrific, nothing was too much trouble and they all went over and above to deliver a consistently excellent service from start to finish. An exceptional and hugely likeable team who walked us patiently through a minefield of issues and worked tirelessly on our behalf: wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them and use them again ourselves should any occasion arise.
“Freeman Fisher have assisted us in a variety of litigation matters in England and the service has been excellent. The work has always been carried out to a very high standard and turned around quickly. Louise Goodwin went above what was expected and recently negotiated a good settlement for one of our clients. I would highly recommend Freeman Fisher to others.”
“Freeman Fisher smoothed out the extremely stressful process of selling our company and delivered far beyond our expectations in terms of quality of service and timescale for all of our needs and requests. The team were accomplished, supportive and in control of every aspect of the complicated transaction, but what truly impressed us was the personable and accommodating service we received at every step, and through every level of the company: from juniors to the partners. We would recommend Freeman Fisher without hesitation.”
‘Melissa, through a very stressful time, you’ve been absolutely fantastic to deal with, really reassuring and commercially minded. All your advice has been fantastic, clear and simple. It’s been so good for my situation, the whole process has gone much easier than I anticipated. I’ve been so impressed and happy with the service you’ve provided, I really appreciate everything you have done so far.’
Gary, Mel and Dan worked tirelessly to get the deal done in such a short space of time, with lots of late nights and weekend spent in the office. Their energy and determination was instrumental and we were delighted to have them on our side and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone else who is looking to sell their business.
I was recommended the services of Freeman Fisher following a sudden challenging situation my organisation was put under through no fault of our own. I explained the tight deadlines we were under to Alex Walsh which were non-negotiable during our initial conversation and he assured me he would do his very best to meet the stated deadlines. Alex and his team worked tirelessly to ensure we met the deadlines discussed without compromising the quality of the service they offer. I would certainly recommend Alex Walsh and his team at Freeman Fisher and would have no hesitations in using their wonderful service again.
“Gary, Dan and Melissa, I wish to convey my thanks and appreciation for a job well done and arriving at a successful conclusion to the acquisition of our business. Pushing back where required and on the key elements gaining ground, resulting in a successful smooth transition. I embarked upon the process with some trepidation and from the outset, I was impressed by your organisational culture, immediate grasp of the facts and the superb advice and guidance I received throughout, gave me confidence we would complete the process with myself and business partners best interests at the forefront of your actions. Thank you, I look forward to the next one!”
“Dan and Melissa gave us great confidence that “all will get sorted” as they handled an extremely complex & detailed demerger process of of several companies following the untimely passing of one of the founding shareholders. Melissa’s understanding and knowledge of the myriad of documents & facts involved was outstanding and she soon became an extension to our company with her office number on autodial. I can truly say that they made the potentially stressful process almost enjoyable and I have no hesitation in recommending Freeman Fisher to new clients.”
“Dan Rodgerson has recently acted for us in connection with the sale of our Company. Myself and all my fellow shareholders were absolutely delighted with the level of advice, guidance and efficient service that we received from Dan during a stressful period for us all. We would have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Dan for the manner and work he carried out for us.”
“Daniel has not only given his time to myself to help strengthen our legals, make valuable introductions to trustworthy and helpful connections, but has also introduced and facilitated meetings between myself and investors for Cool Cold Brew. Ultimately, Daniel has been a fantastic sounding board. To highlight all of this, I know the founders of three other startup businesses very well who all say Daniel does exactly the same for them.”
“I approached Daniel at Freeman Fisher as my business was in the process of raising investment. As this was a new experience for me, I needed assistance in ensuring that any deal that was done, was done properly. Daniel found the time and dedicated resource to helping me understand this better. The deal ultimately fell through, but Daniel has remained engaged, willing to help and proactive in finding other investors and has introduced me to countless people who can also help along this journey. This type of approach is so refreshing and I’m sure many startup and small businesses, like mine, will benefit from having Daniel on their side”
