I first went to Griffin Law given their reputation as one of the UK’s leading niche law firms. They did not disappoint. They somehow manage to combine a strategically tenacious approach with empathy and a ‘human touch’ to get the right results. I cannot recommend Griffin Law more highly. Thank you Mark!

Thank you Mark, I am so glad Malcolm recommended you as his “go sort it guy”, you have done us proud and we as a team appreciate what you have done for us.
If we have any issues in the future, you will be the first person we turn to.
It’s certainly lifted the weight and worry off our shoulders, we can now get on with running the business.
Again, thank you so much, from Gary, Ben and Vulcan Motors.

Right from the beginning Jack outlined the procedure and went through all the paperwork. The positive outcome is down to Jack’s professionalism, hard work and tenacity for which we are very grateful.
