Testimonials

‘Savvy and wise, quick to roll up their sleeves, on top of the law and commercially strategic’

‘Matt Getz and Natasha Harrison are exceptional. Very smart, thoughtful, commercial. Great sounding boards for any kind of complex legal issue really. They are capable of thinking outside of the box.’

‘Team was very professional in dealing with corporate fraud and advise given was relevant and concise’

‘Matt Getz was particularly helpful in addressing concerns and went out of his way to address concerns. Was knowledgeable and honest in assessing the case and giving advise’

‘Excellent at dealing objectively with whistleblower allegations and ensuring clients respond to these appropriately. The sooner Pallas Partners are brought in to help a corporate client manage an investigation or an allegation of corporate crime, the better. Their advice is always measured but never formulaic.’

‘I have worked most of all with Tracey Dovaston, and found her to be calm under pressure but forceful with her advice, which is always well balanced and underpinned by commercial as well as legal strategy. She is a robust defender of her clients’ interests. She is capable of dealing with any number of issues which might arise during a dispute, both purely legal but also issues to do with reputation, media strategies, forensics and investigations in general. Her sophistication in leveraging these different components serves clients extremely well. Alessia de Quincey has also impressed me with her handling of the detail.’
