Having worked with Sherbornes over a 24 month period, I have found them to be honest and is direct and unambiguous. This is critical for us. We need expert, dispassionate advice. They make notes and ensures that solicitor dealing with the case is fully engaged. They never make me, as Managing Director, feel foolish, even when some of my questions are quite ridiculous. I can trust them and that makes all the difference. They smile. Seems such a small thing but makes trading with them both relaxing and enjoyable. In a world where we buy our services from people we like, it makes sense.
