Amaka did all the conveyancing work until completion. We were first time buyer and were a bit lost on how things were working but Amaka explained us all the process and replied with patience to the numerous questions we had.
I required a ﬁrm to advise and provide contracts for a service based business. Also used for conveyancing work. Amaka was very professional from the outset and patient despite numerous questions asked, and produced excellent work both from an individual and business perspective. Would never need to go to anybody else. Highly recommend… This is the one time I can honestly say everything was done perfectly!
My business partner and I had decided to part ways and I required a solicitor to overlook our separation agreement for me. Amaka prepared the agreement to ensure that I was protected from future disputes. Very efficient.
Mr J Brown
You made writing my Will less painful than anticipated. Clear, Concise information and advice…
Amaka was hired to work as legal consultant and associate producer on our film project "The Tenant" - she brought immense value to the project, marshalled all things legal and brought on board new ways of tackling the myriad challenges that are inherent in the production processes. She was a respected member of the core group and we look forward to working with her in the soonest future.
