Corporate and Commercial Law Testimonials

I was so grateful for all of Roger's help and support in sorting out my contract. His patience, knowledge and understanding was exceptional and it was a great comfort to have him on my side.
Mr Lister, ML Financial Associates Ltd

A massive thank you to Roger Margand for preparing my franchise agreement document relating to Squiggle Magic Ltd. The documentation was prepared swiftly and with minimal fuss. Every detail was explained to me in a simple, no jargon language. Thanks again and I will have no hesitation using, and recommending your services in the future.
Mr Goodman, Simply Magic

Wholeheartedly recommend Spires, particularly Roger Margand who I found to be efficient, professional and very knowledgeable. He was incredibly accommodating of my very specific and complex requirements and inflexible schedule, working to ensure I had a smooth transaction. In fact, he was the strongest link in the chain of professionals I was dealing with. I'm very pleased to have dealt with him and wouldn't hesitate to use his or Spires services again in the future.
