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.
Having known the Dixcart Legal team for many years and, having instructed them on various matters, they were my first choice when looking to acquire a company to expand our estate agency operation.
Using a niche commercial practice means that whatever point is raised during the negotiating process they are able to identify the key legal and commercial issues quickly and provide options and solutions for us to consider. Their flexibility and friendly approach means that, whatever the issue, I know that experienced lawyers are always protecting my business’s best interests and I can rely on them to deliver.
I would whole-heartedly recommend them to others looking for business lawyers with sound commercial awareness.
In the last year I have dealt with Dixcart International, Dixcart Legal in Weybridge, and Dixcart offices in Lisbon. In every instance I have received thorough professional attention. In particular Director Laurence Binge has been exceptionally helpful and considered, while Annabel Jump in Weybridge has been a paragon of efficiency with regard to property matters. For me, and my company, the Dixcart group has an excellent blend of professionalism and commercial savvy.
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.
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.”
Importantly to me, I consider Dixcart Legal as a business partner and an extension of my team. Working alongside the employment law team for a number of years now, we have developed a working partnership where my issues are understood easily and prompt advice is given. With Dixcart Legal being instrumental in the creation of legal documents used throughout our business, I do not have to constantly explain the fundamentals for the team to gain a thorough understanding when issues arise.
We work particularly closely with Anne-Marie Pavitt and Sophie Banks who are extremely professional and combines this with a friendly approach, educational at times, and never patronising. They understand the real commercial risks a business can be faced with but also recognise the human elements of each situation, offering advice from both perspectives.”
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.
