Nicholsons have represented the developers on numerous projects that I have been involved in. I have always found them quick to act, totally thorough with any clauses and great at following up the buyers solicitors. When other law firms are just sending emails, my contacts at Nicholsons are only too happy to get on the phone to try and sort out any potential or actual problems. On a personal note, I have used Paul Morris from Nicholsons for 20 + years and find he is a cut above the rest in property. He started out as my lawyer for my development company and I now consider him a close personal friend.

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.
