“David has been the relationship Management for Fairhome Group plc for 4 years. We find the advice David gives is clear to follow and shows strong knowledge of the sector in which we operate. This knowledge translates into a comprehensive service that is delivered in a timely way according to our needs.” - Joe G Newman,  Head of Legal Services Fairhome plc.

"David facilitated the purchase of our pub business in October 2015 allowing us to realise our ambition of running a free of tie operation. He and his colleagues were prompt, professional and most importantly presented the whole process in terms that my wife and I could understand. The purchase itself proved to be quite complicated with multiple concerned parties, and at times David also provided direct key guidance to both our accountant and mortgage provider saving us a substantial amount of money in the process. We cannot speak highly enough of this company, we would not hesitate to use them again in the future, which seems likely, and would recommend Stephensons to anyone seeking a top rate service." - Adam Haigh

"We wish to thank Stephensons and Julie Ball in particular, for guiding us through the process of lease negotiation  in respect of our recent office move.

Julie was a constant calming influence in what became, for us, a frustrating and long drawn process, for Julie it was just another day in the office and her professionalism and expertise won the day.

We would not hesitate to recommend your company to both family and friends in the future." - Lynne & Dave Lister

"I have had the pleasure of using your services recently and working with Mr Graves. I wanted to write to let you know how impressed I have been with the service he provided. He is very efficient, always returns calls and emails when he says he will and has always been patient and understanding with my lack of knowledge around purchasing a business and leasing commercial premises. He has also been utterly professional and incredibly patient with the Solicitor on the other side. He has provided sound advice and has always been willing to spend time to explain things to me. I will have no hesitation in recommending your firm to my friends and colleagues." - Aaron Barham

Birchwood Boulevard Business Park has leased a 2,124 sq ft office to Quintessa, a Scientific and Mathematical Consultancy. 

“The assistance we received in negotiating and completing the lease from David Baybut at Stephensons Solictors LLP was extremely helpful, with his local knowledge of the leasing market and his attention to detail helping us to secure the deal we wanted. David and his team kept us informed at regular intervals as the negotiations progressed and were rigorous in chasing up documents and information from the landlord’s solicitors on our behalf. This made the whole process efficient and stress-free. We are all delighted with the upcoming move to Birchwood Park, which will provide more space in a more convenient location for our Warrington-based consultants. - Dr David Hodgkinson, Quintessa’s Warrington Office Move to Birchwood Boulevard Business Park

"Can I please take this opportunity to thank you for all your help on what could have been a really daunting experience. Your service has been worth every penny and I really appreciated the way you explained everything in ‘non legal’ jargon. You have been patient and thorough and I can’t thank you enough. I shall certainly recommend you to others." - Sonia G. Dean, Events Incorporated Ltd

“Thank you very much for undertaking the conveyancing on our recent investment property purchase. I appreciate the acquisition of this property was far from straight forward and fraught with problems. However, your hard work and thorough approach allowed us to proceed and obtain the property at a significant reduction.

The level of service we received throughout the conveyancing process from you and your colleagues, for example if you were unavailable, there was always somebody to answer our calls or relay queries too and if messages were left phone calls were promptly returned. We also found the way in which legal matters were explained to us simple and easy to understand, therefore enforcing your company logo ‘Legal services the way you want them’.

I have no hesitation in recommending your services to business associates, family and friends as you provide a highly professional and competitive service.” - Chris Kay and Jenni Lord, First Impressions Cleaning Contractors

“We found your services thoroughly efficient and professional with our interests always in mind and we wouldn’t hesitate to use you again.” - Estonhill Ltd

“Very helpful, understanding and always there when needed. Helpful by email and telephone and always giving the correct advice.” - Prime Lettings

“Having built up a successful children’s nursery from scratch we decided the time was right to put the business up for sale. Stephensons was recommended to us for the handling of the transfer. We could not have wished for better service. Everything went so smoothly and any queries that we had were quickly sorted out. We were more than happy with the fee which we thought to be excellent value for money. Both my wife and I are professionals and we expect a professional service. We could not have asked for more.” - Ian and Linda Cameron

“The College has been working with Stephensons for some considerable time because, although it is a large firm with a national perspective, it understands local issues. Much of the work that the firm undertakes for us involves land transfer and the contracts this throws up. The law surrounding this field of work is complex and therefore we need, and are very happy with, the expertise that Stephensons provides.” - Jim Crewdson, former Principal of Wigan and Leigh College
