Apart from the strength and depth of their expertise at the partner level what is important is that this goes right through the team in terms of skill and efficiency. This is something you will not find in any other legal practice in the area and additionally means that they are good value for money when the bill arrives.’

Andy Coyle, the senior partner is widely regarded as the best property lawyer in the Chilterns, in terms of expertise and quality of advice and is excellent particularly where complex and difficult property issues are concerned.’

The team have expanded and have bought in some very experienced personnel; however, they are still approachable and flexible. They stand out above other firms in that they are keen to understand situations and they work actively with commercial property consultants such as myself, rather than being slightly aloof, as some solicitors are.

They are very knowledgeable and pragmatic.’

The team we work with provide an excellent level of advice and cover. Critically if someone is away, there is another that will pick up the workload.’

Their level of experience and knowledge enables us to fully trust them. This puts them at a level far above other people we have worked with.’

Resolution

At Lennons Solicitors, we value and encourage individuality. We share knowledge, ideas, good practice and life experiences, both professionally and socially. By holding these values close to the heart of the firm, we’ve been able to build a team who come from a plethora of different backgrounds, with each and every member of staff bringing something unique to the table.

By nurturing a team who each have their own experiences, viewpoints and stories to tell, we’re often able to relate to our clients in ways that other law firms simply cannot. We go to great lengths to be the most down-to-earth, approachable lawyers you could possibly hope to meet. A solicitor should be so much more than someone who simply spouts legal jargon; it’s a real skill to be able to deliver dependable legal advice in a way that clients from all backgrounds and walks of life can relate to.

As a result of our outlook on diversity, our staff come from a wide range of backgrounds. Many of our talented solicitors can speak foreign languages in addition to English. This means that you’ll often hear clients conversing with us in languages such as Korean, Romanian, Punjabi or Urdu. We’re very proud to be able to offer legal advice to a diverse array of clients – both individuals and businesses – some of whom travel from across the country to speak with us.

Whilst our commitment to diversity is engrained in the values of the firm, we have also adopted a formal equality and diversity policy, as we are bound to by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. We are an equal opportunities employer and all the staff at Lennons are committed to avoiding discrimination based on any “protected characteristics”, as outlined in the Equality Act 2010. This applies to our conduct in each and every element of our business, from internal procedures, to dealing with our clients, to speaking with applicants who wish to join Lennons. This includes making any necessary adjustments to accommodate disabled or vulnerable clients, so that they feel at ease. All of our team are aware of this policy and receive training to ensure that it is universally understood and applied.

To track diversity in the firm, we encourage all of our team to complete our annual diversity questionnaire, the results of which we publish on our website. Whilst completion of the questionnaire is not mandatory, the majority of our staff completed the most recent (2019) edition. This allows us to monitor the diversity of our team and report our findings to the Solicitors Regulation Authority.

At Lennons, we’re very proud to have such a diverse range of talented staff, who each offer something different to the firm. It’s the combined talents of our team that drive us forward and allow us to be one of Buckinghamshire’s leading law firms.


CLIENT: Alexander Dressler
TESTIMONIAL: I have been a client of Lennons Solicitors, Chess Chambers, for over a year. My solicitor, Gavin Henshaw, has done an amazing job during this time. I have been trying to get a divorce for more than 20 years — without luck. The efforts have spanned four countries — the United States, Hungary, Guatemala and the UK — and half-a-dozen lawyers and solicitors. Due to a combination of my ex-wife’s stalling tactics and legal representation not up to the job of handling an international divorce case, I thought I would never get divorced — until Gavin took on the case. Gavin was quick to grasp the difficulties in the case, looked for solutions, and followed through with determination and excellent knowledge of the law. When he needed additional advice, he was quick to get it. He always let me know where matters stood. As a result, I am now divorced and all outstanding financial issues have been resolved.


CLIENT: Alison Chauhan
TESTIMONIAL: Lennons Solicitors were highly recommended by 2 lots of friends and Lennons lived up to our expectations when selling a house in York via probate and some very technical aspects linked to Land Registry – we live in Bucks – and the whole process was very efficient and economic under Ros Nolan who proved to be a very safe pair of hands. We were fully kept in the picture throughout the process with an outcome we were looking for. We will appoint Lennons for legal services in the future and would recommend Lennons to others as well.


CLIENT: Kieran Byrne
TESTIMONIAL: I had the pleasure of dealing with Rezaul from Lennons in a couple of recent transactions, both residential and commercial. I found him to be extremely professional and knowledgeable. He was also tenacious in protecting my interests. Altogether my experience of using Lennons was excellent, I will use them again and recommend them to friends.


CLIENT: Deborah Porter
TESTIMONIAL: Andrew King from Lennons Solicitors is excellent. Andrew explains everything in a way you can understand & not in solicitor speak like some solicitors do. I had another solicitor who was working on a very sensitive case for myself & my ex-husband after our son was tragically killed in a road traffic accident. I needed help to understand the letters I was receiving from this solicitor, so I got in contact with Andrew King for a second opinion. Andrew was very understanding and helpful handling my sensitive case and helped me out tremendously. The way Andrew explained things made it easier for me to understand the letters. Andrew is a very good solicitor, who I would recommend 100%.


CLIENT: Nigel
TESTIMONIAL: I have used Lennons many times for property transactions and bridging loans. This time Rezaul kindly helped with what proved to be a very difficult bridging loan to push through. Rezaul was extremely diligent, professional and extremely tenacious when faced with unresponsive and disorganised solicitors from the other side. He stayed calm and professional and always kept me updated although I know he was losing his mind with how hard it was to get anywhere with the other side’s solicitors. Thank you so much Rezaul. I highly recommend Rezaul and Lennons to anyone.


CLIENT: Anonymous (Employment)
TESTIMONIAL: Lennons provided me with practical, no-nonsense advice that made me aware of the positives and negatives of all possible courses of action. Tamara was an outstanding adviser – she was very responsive, even over the Christmas period when the office was shut.
