‘One of the key strengths of Lavelle Partners is that they put a lot of focus and effort on understanding their client’s business no matter how complex or bespoke a particular process is and they always manage to find practical solutions to any problems we encounter in our business. From my experience with other law firms, Lavelle Partners are more “hands on” and more client focused E.g. regular updates are provided on cases and tasks which they are working on. Lavelle Partners are excellent at keeping their clients up-to-date on fees and costs so there are never any surprises when it comes to their invoices. Another key strength of Lavelle Partners is their excellent publications and updates provided to clients on all legal areas relevant to businesses.’
