Testimonials

‘Easy to access, always willing to help, very good value for money.’

‘James Atkins is genuine, very helpful and always does all he can to support us.’

‘Skilled negotiators. Timely responses and delivery. They don’t just answer the question you ask, they get to the nub of the issues we are trying to resolve and cover in legal agreements.’

‘I recently worked with Bevan Brittan’s healthcare real estate team led by James Atkins. James was my main point of contact and I was very impressed with service and quality of the advice he provided. I was particularly struck by the degree to which he made himself available and the speed of response – especially bearing in mind that he would, I am sure, have been juggling a multitude of matters. Highly recommended.’

‘The Leeds office has been incredibly helpful with judicial review cases. Very knowledgeable about the law, ability to explain in clear English and give excellent advice.’

‘Susan Trigg. She has been absolutely excellent. She is clever, well-prepared, knowledgeable, and very easy to get along with too.’

‘James Atkins. Totally reliable, highly responsive, extremely knowledgeable of his field. A partner in every sense of the word not just an adviser.’
