‘It is quite common to find lawyers with a solid understanding of the law, but it’s quite rare to find ones that have such a deep understanding of how businesses work. The team at Helix has helped us in a couple of disputes, and have often advised in a way that really focuses on commercial viability rather than just suggesting nuclear legal routes (that would most likely be more profitable for the law firm). What has also stood out, is the dedication of individual team members to their cases, and how invested they are in fully understanding your company’s needs – making sure they can meet and exceed them.’

‘They are very focused on securing a commercial outcome on the best possible terms for their clients. They are often instructed in cases against bigger and better known firms and they more than hold their own. They are very experienced in dealing with a wide variety of commercial disputes, often arising from property transactions, but also shareholder and general business disputes.’

‘Having been instructed by larger City firms whose costs can be very high, Helix’s fees are much more reasonable despite the firm providing the same level of service.’

‘An approachable, down to earth boutique law firm specialising in commercial disputes – always available, adapted well to the pandemic, would highly recommend.’

‘Alex Cook is an outstanding lawyer. He is absolutely determined to secure the best possible outcome for his clients, and will fight tenaciously to achieve that outcome. He is very experienced in dealing with a wide variety of commercial disputes, often arising from property transactions.’

‘Alex Cook is a hardworking and experienced litigator. He adopts a bullish style to litigation which is extremely effective and typically brings about a swift resolution.’

‘Having worked predominantly with Alex Cook, I have admired his transparency from the start of any engagement. He has absolutely no problem with telling you if something is a long shot, or if there is no case to be had. What is really special though about Alex, is his dedication to clients and how much he invests himself into their cases, making sure he fully understands the bigger picture and then advising accordingly.’
