Bell Lax Limited is a ‘strong boutique litigation firm’ that provides ‘a very good level of service and provides very honest advice that takes into consideration clients’ objectives, putting clients’ interest above its own’. Associate director Liam Owen and associate Natalie Bradshaw  acted for RGB Group in a number of cases, including one regarding an alleged failure to pay for construction works done to a hotel in Leicester Square, and another case concerning its purchase of defective lifts. Owen also deals with reputation management matters; he advised a victim of the contaminated blood factor products scandal concerning a statement in Ken Clarke QC MP’s autobiography concerning the ex gratia payments to victims, which were initially inaccurately described as compensation. Consultant Peter Lax (‘very good with complex matters’) handles a variety of insolvency disputes and shareholder litigation. Solicitor-advocate Qarrar Somji is ‘an impressive and industrious litigator’. Director Richard Kerry , whose work includes shareholder disputes 'is very agreeable and doesn’t get ruffled; he looks after his clients’.
