'I cannot praise the firm too highly', says a client of Prettys Solicitors LLP in Ipswich, adding that 'it always provides top-notch contextual advice'. 'The level of support we receive is exceptional', says one client who adds that the practice has 'the ability to consider the commercial aspects that are important to us as a business; it provides superb value for money and expert advice'. Head of employment Kelly Sayers stands out with one client noting that 'although the whole team is approachable, knowledgeable and professional, she should be singled out for particular recommendation - she really knows her stuff'. 'Her expertise is highly commendable,' notes another who adds that 'she is very responsive and has both a pragmatic approach and dynamic personality that is a blessing to work with'. As part of their busy caseload Matthew Cole and senior associate Vanessa Bell handled high-value holiday pay claims. The addition of senior associate Laura Pharez Zea from Mayer Brown International LLP adds experience in both contentious and non-contentious matters to a practice that 'goes the extra mile to understand its clients’ business needs and objectives; its no-nonsense approach is a very refreshing attribute'.
