CLIENT: Anonymous U.S.-Based Company
TESTIMONIAL: Based on an exceptional referral from our Q.C., we first turned to litigation partner Steven Mash on the eve of opening statements in a trial where sudden exigent issues arose between us and then-litigation counsel. Although the trial experience in the U.K. High Court was novel and mysterious to us, a U.S.-based company, Steven and his partner, Nick Mumby, provided excellent, practical advice while guiding us through various legal and business risks that came up in our unique circumstances. Since the favourable resolution of that initial matter, we have continued to look to Steven and Nick on other U.K. litigation and real estate-related matters and we could not be more pleased with their service.

CLIENT: London 2017 World Athletics Championships
TESTIMONIAL: James Earl and David Quinlan played a vital role in our success by advising our Boards on a wide range of issues as well as providing practical support for contracts and procurement. Like any great endeavour putting on the championships was not always easy but James and David worked tirelessly to help minimise difficulties and keep us on track.  On one occasion this even involved them providing advice in the early hours of the morning which was well beyond the call of duty but very very much appreciated by our Board.

CLIENT: Argo Blockchain Plc
TESTIMONIAL: Working with the team at Fladgate has been one of the best legal services experiences of my 20 year career.   They have incredible customer service and their work is very thorough and professional.  Most importantly for us, the in-house team included experts in public markets, regulation, HR and general corporate legal advice.   I would highly recommend David Robinson, David Lee and the rest of the Fladgate team to any company looking for considered and practical advice in a complex business environment.  

TESTIMONIAL: I have known Alan Woolston who heads up the Construction & Projects Team at Fladgate, for many years.  He is an exceptional and unique lawyer: pragmatic, technically superb, and dynamic and on deal after deal, he delivers, always giving 100%. These qualities are reflected in his brilliant team.  I have dealt with a number of people in the Construction Team from senior lawyers to paralegals and each and every time I receive an excellent service.  There is a consistent excellence, and this is not an easy feat to achieve.

CLIENT: Patron Capital
TESTIMONIAL: The Fladgate team we work with are all experts in their fields, highly capable individuals. They manage to combine a strong academic knowledge of the law with a commercial approach to deal-making - a rare combination.  They understand our business and know how private equity works. Gideon Dabby-Joory, our client partner, is a pleasure to deal with.  Not only is he fiercely intelligent but, perhaps as importantly, he is very responsive and commercial and does not try to over-complicate matters.

CLIENT: Zouk Capital
TESTIMONIAL: Fladgate have been our principal legal advisers on our European deals for many years. The team, which is led by Graham Spitz – with support principally from the hardworking and talented Yulia Leyko - has proven itself to be an effective and supportive partner on due diligence and complex negotiations over the course of numerous transactions. Graham is highly pragmatic and provides clear and helpful legal advice. Most recently, the team represented us, together with the other major private equity shareholders, in the successful sale of iZettle to PayPal; a cross border and complex transaction with multiple parties and which was completed within a very tight timetable.

CLIENT: Weston Homes Plc
TESTIMONIAL: We have worked closely with Richard Reuben for many years and cannot speak highly enough about the quality of service that he has given us.  Richard has advised us many times during land acquisition negotiations with large landowners, and the deals he has secured on our behalf have been complex and at times requiring patience. We have always found him to provide first class advice, and enter legal discussions with sellers and their representatives in a methodical, calm, but firm manner.
