Our business has grown rapidly in recent years and Hewlett Swanson has been at the heart of this. Their advice is consistently first class and they punch well above their weight both in terms of breadth and quality of service. I am only sorry I didn’t come across them sooner.
Tristan Rodgers, Finance Director, Newcore Capital Management LLP
During a 40 year career in the aviation industry, I have worked alongside numerous commercial lawyers. Hewlett Swanson easily stand out from the crowd. The team is led by a number of extremely effective lawyers, having secured no less than two High Court successes in which I was involved. Refreshingly honest, hard-working and tenacious, no stone is left unturned. From my experience, what gives Hewlett Swanson a certain uniqueness is the time they take to really learn about a business and work alongside clients in the strategic development and preparation of a case. Chris Hobbs, Director, Fairoaks Operations Limited
We have always found Hewlett Swanson to be very responsive and commercial in their approach, highly professional and knowledgeable. They adopt a pragmatic approach cutting to the very heart of the problem and get results. Nick S Wood, Partner and Ian Richardson, Director – Grant Thornton UK LLP, Fraud Insolvency Division (‘FinD’)
Law firms that are in tune with the needs of businesses and willing to share the risks of litigation are few and far between, but this is exactly what Hewlett Swanson does. Their advisers are accessible and straightforward in their approach. In being forthright, honest and completely transparent, Lee makes it very easy to trust his judgement and recommendations, not least because he invests a significant amount of time and effort in getting to grips with the issues at hand. As well as being technically skilled, his advice is delivered with a profound appreciation of the commercial implications and risks involved.
Julian Henley-Price, Barrister and Director at Kendso Limited
I have worked with Hewlett Swanson on a number of successful cases and they are, without question, first class litigation solicitors – more than a match for firms many times their size. What marks them out is the fact that they combine well-focused strategic thinking with a professional case management team that has proved itself in substantial multiparty litigation in the High Court. The firm’s senior partners invest the time and effort to keep cases on track and communicate progress with clients. This is not a firm where work is delegated to inexperienced personnel; clients deal directly with experienced litigators who help them devise the best strategy for resolving their dispute or (if incapable of resolution) securing a successful outcome through the court process.
