Insights by Edward



It was our first company acquisition and we knew we needed first class legal support; we certainly struck gold when with Alex and his team at Herrington Carmichael. Edward in particular was fantastic and guided us through the whole process with pragmatism and a level of calmness that was professional and reassuring. The experience was outstanding.

- Sean Sweet, Director of Blend Marketing Limited

We found Alex, Ed and the commercial team at Herrington Carmichael to be very knowledgeable, helpful and attentive from start to finish when we were selling our IFA business. We would have no hesitation in recommending them.

- Commercial Client

Navigating the legal and financial minefield that’s attached to a part residential, part commercial purchase, combined with the sale of our house and my Parents house was certainly challenging. Edward, Daniel and all of the Commercial and Residential teams did a fantastic job of advising us and steering us through this minefield. They understood exactly what the situation was and how to handle it. We put them under deadline pressures and their response was not only professional, friendly and courteous, but they responded fantastically, often going beyond what we would have reasonably expected. Their communication was great and they did what they said they would do. Since then, I have also worked with Herrington Carmichael on other business matters and will be doing so again in the near future.

- Commercial Client

We worked with Alex… and Ed… in the sale of our financial advice business and we found them extremely helpful in guiding us through the whole process and making what seemed like the complex and difficult, easy to understand. We found them approachable, knowledgeable and good listeners as well as advisers. I would certainly recommend them to any other firm who might be looking to take the same path as we have.

- Commercial Client

I would like to thank Herrington Carmichael for their professional service namely Edward from commercial and Daniel from property divisions. Being new in the U.K. and not understanding the processes, they both took time to explain the process and detailed reasons for the clauses put into the contracts. Well done 5 star treatment. Will definitely use you again.
