What Matthew’s clients say

Matthew Russell is a detail-orientated solicitor whom I’ve had the pleasure of working with for over 10 years. Matthew has assisted me personally and many clients of our firm with many legal matters ranging simple acquisitions to complex contracts and agreements. Advice I’ve received from Matthew as well as other staff of Nicholsons Solicitors has always been professional, impartial and appropriate.

I have been a client of Nicholsons Solicitors since 2007 when working with Matthew Russell on the documentation to do with the purchase of my Management Rights business. Since then I have had reason to engage Nicholsons several more times, all to do with commercial real estate transactions. Whether it was to do with further property purchases, applying for and gaining two five-year extensions to the Management and Letting Agreements or creating a Management Rights Operator Agreement to have a contractor take over the running of my Management Rights, Matthew has been there to assist over all these years. The benefit to me of only working with the one firm has been the continuity of dealing with the same person who can recall all my previous dealings. It is handy having just one place where past business documents, contracts, trusts etc. are located.

Matthew Russell and Simon Thompson have been looking after our legal matters both business and personal, for almost a decade. They have taken the time to get to know our business intimately and we appreciate having a legal contact who can cover such a broad range of services for us. Our personal dealings have always run very smoothly and they are always extremely thorough in reviewing contract for us.

I have worked closely with Matthew Russell and his team at Nicholsons Solicitors for a number of years on a variety of different projects from house sales and purchases to loan agreements and leasing contracts and consider Matthew to be a close friend as we have grown to know each other on a personal basis through our dealings. Matthew is always available and ready to support me and my family at any time, is efficient and extremely knowledgeable in his field. I am confident every time I seek Matthew’s advice that I will be guided with honesty and the correct information. I look forward to a long standing and continuing relationship with Matthew and Nicholsons Solicitors into the future.

Over the last seven years I have known Matthew Russell he has been involved in numerous transactions and services on my behalf. These have included  Management Rights Sales, Purchases and Agreement Variations. He has also undertaken House Conveyancing work. Much of this work has been protracted and complex and Matthew provided excellent advice and assurance through each stage of the process. I would highly recommend Matthew and the Team at Nicholsons who have always provided great service and assistance in a friendly and efficient manner.

I have been dealing with the firm for circa 12 years after they were recommended to us by a business associate. We initially started dealing with Matthew Weaver and his associate Matthew Russell and must say were impressed with their Corporate acumen. Subsequently, I have been dealing predominantly with Matt Russell and have found him to be dynamic in his approach, Matt has always provided us with a can-do approach. The most admirable quality about Matt and the staff at Nicholson’s, is accessibility to your Lawyer needless to say Matt has always been prompt in reply. Therefore, I would highly recommend Nicholson’s Lawyers.
