What our Private Client Law candidates and clients say

 

“Having been in my last role over a decade, I was very cautious about looking for a new role. Having met Kelly at a few networking events, I asked to meet her for a coffee and she was able to answer all my questions.

She was very discreet and communicated with me every step of the way. She was really open and honest, so I always felt she had my best interests at heart. I would absolutely recommend Kelly to anyone considering their next move.”

Elaine Roche, Tax & Estate Planning Partner at Kuits Solicitors

 

“I have recently worked with Kelly on a difficult role to fill due to a lack of candidates on the market for Private Client. Kelly was really helpful throughout - she listened to what I was looking for and actively applied that to the candidates she was representing so the candidate on paper was perfect and in person even more so!

Kelly is responsive and works hard to understand the role and our 'ideal'. It is a refreshing and reassuring approach. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services!”

Sarah Walker, Head of Wills, Trusts, Tax and Probate at Weightmans

 

"We turned to Kelly when we were looking for a Head of our Private Client department. She took the time to understand our business and culture and quickly provided several very credible candidates for a role for which we had been finding it difficult to find the right person.

We found a fantastic solicitor with great skills and who fits our ethos very well. Kelly supported us throughout and I highly recommend her."

Chris Gawne, Director at Price Slater Gawne Solicitors
