Testimonials

I switched from another (bigger) firm halfway through a time sensitive process as I felt I was competing for time with another big client. It was a risky move but from the first call, I knew it was the right one. The team at Ince were reassuring, focused on the detail from the start, firm on my behalf when needed and committed throughout the process to the extent that it felt like they cared about the outcome as much as I did.

Matthew Stratton – he has provided excellent counsel throughout my work with him. Matt is incredibly thorough, responsive and diligent and I have absolute faith in his advice – I trust him implicitly. He’s committed to getting you the best possible result, whatever that takes, and shows incredible resilience to get you there. He’s witty and pleasant to deal with and I value all my dealings with him, and would have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending him.

The team is very proactive and knowledgeable in their field of work.

Matthew Stratton has a good proactive approach and is a very good problem solver with a commercial mindset.’

Testimonials

A highly professional outfit with a fierce determination to win for the client.

Nick Goldstone: a terrier-like grip on litigation and excellent negotiator.

The teams are very good at dealing with urgent issues and working hard to ensure that deadlines are met and that clients get the best service.

Nick Goldstone is an expert at ensuring the litigation teams know what is required of them and working with Counsel to get the best results for the client in a cost-effective way.

The team is extremely well managed. They are efficient, knowledgeable and explain things in a no-nonsense way. They are very commercially minded.

We normally deal with Nick Goldstone who gives good advice. We find him extremely tough but with an underlying sense of humour. He is very knowledgeable but unlike some solicitors is aiming for an end result rather than prolonging cases.

Excellent partner engagement with the work, and highly skilled associates. Melanie Hart is a particular star: really gets to grips with the clients’ needs, and combines strategic insight with hands-on hard work.

A very “savvy” firm, offering firm practical advice.

Philip Cohen (partner) and Vikash Savani (associate) are a formidable team.

Nick Goldstone is the leading light in the team and increasingly prominent in the firm as a whole.

Nick Goldstone is an outsanding litigator whose judgement is excellent. He is very tenacious and has great intuition.

Pragmatic and results-focused firm that does not over bill.

Melanie Hart – very rare to find a lawyer who has the full package, but Melanie does. Great client management skills – reassuring, expert, confident but caring. Fine legal mind. Determined deliverer. Very very impressed by her work.

Robin Shaw is a superlative litigator who is leading a diverse young team of keen and talented junior lawyers. The firm is properly resourced and provides an all-round, value-for-money service with the client’s interests at the heart of everything they do.
