CLIENT: Corporate and Commercial client, January 2021
COMPANY/FIRM: Charlotte Alexander, TWM Solicitors LLP
TESTIMONIAL: “I first came across TWM a few years ago when an elderly lady needed assistance with her Will. Having the necessary power of attorney my wife and I liaised with Charlotte Mandy at TWM branch in Wimbledon. This was concluded efficiently, professionally and in a most personable style. Charlotte certainly dealt with an elderly lady in a most considerate manner.

So when I needed further assistance on updating and re-writing Company documentation including Articles of Association and share issues for the Directors (etc.) I made enquiries and was referred to Ms Charlotte Alexander based in the Guildford branch of TWM.

Over a period of just under a year Ms Alexander displayed prompt responses to any queries, gave valued professional direction and advice as well as displaying infinite patience. She was hindered by the reluctance of a few Directors to give up to date information and she skilfully suggested and achieved alternative procedures when necessary. She produced a template agenda for an AGM which enabled the decisions to be completed swiftly.

So overall I have been delighted with the outcome when dealing with TWM. The solicitors involved displayed specialist expertise allied with both a personable and professional approach. When I next need professional legal advice, I know that TWM have the necessary specialists to help. Thankyou.”

In addition to providing sound legal advice, Jamie was very helpful in thinking through various elements of negotiation, pre-completion Due Diligence, and post completion strategy. I thoroughly recommend the service to any commercial organisation looking for professional and pragmatic advice and support.”


CLIENT: Corporate and Commercial client, November 2019
COMPANY/FIRM: Jamie Berry, TWM Solicitors LLP
TESTIMONIAL: “Our disposal wasn’t without its challenges and we were particularly impressed with the goodwill, tenacity and professionalism of the TWM team assisting us – certainly Jonny Forrest and Jamie Berry should be specifically mentioned in despatches. For us, the key to the success of our professional relationship was that TWM demonstrated, on numerous occasions, that they were right there in the trenches with us whilst maintaining a focus on achieving our desired goal.

“The deal, in its successful conclusion, certainly had its moments but we worked through them together with a sense of fun – unreservedly, we would recommend and work with TWM again in a heartbeat.”


CLIENT: Family Law client, April 2019
COMPANY/FIRM: Caroline Keeley, TWM Solicitors LLP
TESTIMONIAL: “Caroline [Keeley] has been an excellent legal adviser to me over the years. She is a delight to work with, tailoring her approach to always achieve my brief and desired outcome.

She has deep legal knowledge of family law which combined with her style and high integrity, brings great outcomes whilst making the process as positive as possible for all. I cannot recommend Caroline enough.”
