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.”
