Testimonials: Employment

I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help, obviously as an established company within the construction industry we have had times we have had to deal with various solicitors, and at times that has been quite taxing. However, with yourself and your company it has been a breath of fresh air in that you have been on hand and approachable whenever we have needed help or advice. We will definitely be retaining your services when we need them, and it feels very assuring to know we have a business partner we can trust in, and work with as good as yourselves.

I have had the pleasure of working with the team at Dixcart Legal for over 12 years. Mel and Anne-Marie have been instrumental in the success of our employment law seminars, which we deliver in partnership to a local audience of HR professionals. Their ‘straight talking’ and insightful presentations are very popular with our clients and our audience numbers continue to grow as a result, with many attendees going on to become clients of Dixcart Legal. Dixcart Legal also represent Amber Employment Services legally, and we know that we are always in the best hands. They are true professionals and much trusted experts whilst retaining a ‘human element’ to law.

Rebecca Bannerman – Director – Amber Employment Services Ltd

I have been a satisfied client of Dixcart for 11 years using their corporate and personal accountancy services and more recently this year with Dixcart Legal’s employment law services. I have always found Dixcart to be very pragmatic, straight talking, technically strong and safe, very proactive and always very good value for money. Moreover I have found the team (I am looked after by Julia Wigram and Anne-Marie Pavitt) to be very empathetic, personally supportive and “fun” to work with, and as such I have now entrusted my Son’s start-up business to them.

I have used the legal services of Mel Smith, Anne-Marie Pavitt and their team since 2004, particularly the professional skills of the Employment Law department. With headquarters in Dublin, WELink employs 120 people in 7 different countries and it is therefore critical that we use legal advisers with a real understanding of complex international commercial issues. The team is flexible and always responds in a comprehensive and well considered manner. We have developed a close relationship over the years and I am always impressed with the detail and quality of the legal advice provided. I enjoy working with Mel Smith, Anne-Marie Pavitt and their colleagues and look forward to continuing our professional relationship.

Ann Keenan – HR Director – WELink

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.
