Testimonials

‘They have the ability to understand new briefs and get up the curve quickly.’

‘Bryan McCarthy has a strategic mindset and commercial focus. Sarah Slevin is very smart and detail orientated.’

‘They are approachable and offer specialised advice in various areas of law.’

‘Quick responses, clear advice and very service-minded.’

‘Sarah Slevin is incredibly responsive. I send the same emails to seven law firms in seven countries, and Sarah is always the first to respond. And her responses are clear, thorough and practical, and I feel confident that her legal advice is 100% correct and trustworthy. She also gives feedback in a form that can easily be reused internally, such as by providing specific text proposals or mark-ups. This saves me a lot of work, which I’m very grateful for. She’s my favourite foreign legal counsel, mostly because of her high-quality legal advice but also because of her ultra-fast responsiveness.’
