    Yavan’s approach in dealing with negotiations and in dealing with the city lawyers on a multi-million pound investment were commercially focused, ensured that progress was made and that we concentrated on the areas of the greatest importance. It greatly assisted in ensuring that a potentially complex closing was dealt with effectively and with a successful result. Always approachable and responsive, Yavan and his team are professional and a pleasure to deal with. When the deal was complete, our new partners also remarked on the extremely pragmatic and professional input from Yavan and his team.

    - Clayton Sullivan-Webb, Finance Director, Grundon Waste Management Limited

    Yavan and his team at Herrington Carmichael recently advised us on the assignment of two loans and associated security from third party lenders onto our books. Yavan and Matt provided advice of the highest quality and ensured the transactions completed swiftly. They were available whenever we needed to contact them and kept their advice commercially focused to our specific requirements. We have built a good relationship up with the whole team at Herrington Carmichael and would certainly recommend them.

    - Chris Hector, Strata Residential Finance PLC

    Chris and his team were a pleasure to work with as part of a CBILS loan application we made in Q1 2021 via our new bank, Silicon Valley Bank. Chris was incredibly pro-active and responsive throughout the entire process. He understood very clearly, from the outset, the importance of securing the loan for the business given the relatively early stage nature of the company. He and his team drove this forward, facilitating the required dialogue with SVB’s legal counsel to get the deal over the line. I would not hesitate to use Chris and his teams legal services in the future.
