Client Testimonials

I must thank you again for all the help in selling the business. It was an emotive matter for me, but your support made the whole process so much easier.


Throughout the acquisition, Coodes were able to give us an excellent all-round service. They have been as good as any top London firm I've worked with and I certainly plan to use them again.


I first instructed Kirsty, arding a complex share sale and purchase which I was required to enter into, prior to my retirement. Kirsty's concise, timely and excellent advice enabled a better outcome for me from this transaction with a few concessions thus granted by the vendor, which I would otherwise not have benefitted from. I would have no hesitation in recommending Coodes to other clients.


Straightforward, comprehensive, professional legal advice, delivered in a friendly informal manner.


Professional, personable and great to collaborate with on all legal matters brought to her attention.


I employed Kirsty to help complete the purchase of the 50% of the shares in a Limited Company owned by a business partner. I worked with Kirsty Davey and her team to accomplish what turned out to be a complex and lengthy transaction. Throughout this process I consider I was well advised by Kirsty Davey and she showed a professional attention to detail. She was aware of drafts from the other parties solicitors that might have prejudiced me and suggested alterations and inclusions to protect my interests. I was very happy to conclude a the purchase that would not have been possible without Kirsty's input.


Massive thanks Kirsty. You are quite simply the best lawyer I have ever worked with and there have been many.


Kirsty Davey - I cannot rate her highly enough. Responsive, thoughtful, insightful and intuitive as to what we needed in this crisis.


Excellent liaison throughout the work undertaken on our behalf. Mrs Davey was wonderful in helping when we were against very tight deadlines, always calm and reassuring. Jess Field was fantastic in helping us too. Much appreciated, you are an asset to your company.


We do a significant amount of work with Kirsty, with us advising on the taxation aspects of a deal and Kirsty advising on the legal side. Kirsty provides a personal service to her clients and importantly makes a point of adopting an extremely practical and pragmatic approach to her advice.
