Chris Malloy – Managing Director – MA Ltd

The team acted for us on the sale of one of our most successful companies. The company had been established by our father almost five decades before, and having never been through the sale process before we relied on their legal expertise to guide us through it. In particular they helped us to understand the legal implications at every step so that we could make fully-informed commercial decisions. Not only did they provide us with regular updates they also worked hand-in-hand with our financial advisers.

With such a complex deal a number of the departments were involved in bringing this transaction to a very satisfying conclusion. It was obvious to us that they worked together effectively and communicated regularly to help move the transaction forward, never losing pace.

Importantly, we were regularly updated with costs so that at any time we had a good feel for our anticipated expenditure. This we found a very reassuring aspect of the commercial approach taken. 

The entire team worked hard from beginning to end and we were impressed at the effort they made day after day and the energy that they have. We will have no hesitation in using them again for all our legal needs.

Michael Cumper, Director and David Cumper, Director – Quadrant Ventures Limited

Before I started Firebrand Promotions Ltd in 2002 I sought assistance from Peter Wilman & together we planned the new business & used the Dixcart tax & legal specialists. Since then I have continued using the services of the accountants and lawyers at Dixcart. Following setting up the company Peter has unofficially performed the role of Finance Director. Over a long period of time he has acted as a sounding board for me personally and has offered advice to the numerous issues or concerns that affect every Business owner, then providing advice as needed or introducing me to the correct specialist at Dixcart when their skills are required.

Dixcart produce our annual statutory accounts and deal with the corporation tax returns, as well giving tax advice when it is required. The lawyers deal with all the company’s legal matters including drafting documentation, contracts and property matters, as they arise; but I am particularly grateful for the assistance with employment law. With frequent changes to UK Employment Law it is reassuring to be advised by Dixcart Legal for all ad hoc employment law matters. The team has a strong commercial acumen and consistently provides high quality, appropriate advice. I have worked with Mel Smith and Anne-Marie Pavitt, and their other lawyers and legal support staff, who combine experience and common sense with excellent client handling skills. I appreciate the lawyers’ personable manner and their initial swift responses to my queries by telephone which are then supported by detailed legal justification where required.

I find that my accountants and lawyers working together as one team is both efficient and effective, greatly helping reducing delays and misunderstandings that occur when using two different firms. It is for this reason that I have moved my personal affairs to them as well. After working with Dixcart for nearly two decades I have no hesitation in recommending them for their first-class professional services.

Andrew Bourne – Managing Director – Firebrand Promotions Limited

I have developed an excellent working relationship with Dixcart Legal having instructed the team on finance agreements, including guarantees and loans, and employment law matters, including employment contracts and policy issues as well as consultancy work. In all instances key legal and commercial issues were presented efficiently by the team who provided solutions to meet our corporate objectives. I value the clear, honest advice and support provided by Mel Smith and Ben Habershon, who are decisive, strategically astute and commercially minded. Anne-Marie Pavitt advises us on employment law issues and is incredibly strong on detail, has a practical grasp on matters and a sound legal judgement.

I highly recommend the team at Dixcart Legal to any company seeking dedicated, professional corporate and employment lawyers in the UK.
