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.

- Commercial Contracts Client

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.
