Simcocks ‘is very responsive, technically excellent and commercial’ and clients appreciate that the firm’s corporate and commercial experts ‘deal with the Isle of Man aspects of transactions in a professional and autonomous manner’. Practice head Amy Coole acted for the seller in the acquisition of a local trust and company service provider by a competitor, and ‘excellent team player’ Alex Spencer collaborated with advocate Sarah Wolter to advise a company on the transfer of different classes of shares from its largest shareholder to select individuals. Clients also recommend Irini Newby, advocate Kevin O\'Loughlin, who ‘gives strong technical advice’, and the ‘friendly, responsive and always helpful’ Peter Chemaly.
