Testimonials

Excellent work. Excellent communication. Excellent  overall. Theodoros Skouzos.’

Personal touch and approach to client contact especially first contact. They were able to give us the appropriate legal advice and guide us to the best outcome for our situation. When we contacted other firms the first thing they informed us about was the cost of the first meeting rather than asking us about our problem. They were very good listeners and more importantly asked us questions – the right questions, questions we did not think about, this showed us excellent knowledge of the field. They did not give us false assurances, straight to the point, they managed to solve our problem in as little time as possible and obviously as little cost as possible to us.

A very responsive and commercial firm, which is very knowledgeable in its fields and strives to get the best result. Theo Skouzos is excellent – very knowledgeable, but tempered with a very good commercial approach to problem solving. Theodoros always makes himself available and can be counted on to get the best result for clients.
