I just wanted to say I would highly recommend and can't thank you enough.
My first encounter was with Shaylie who was so lovely and explained the process involved with a redundancy settlement. I was really concerned as I had such a short deadline to meet, so I sent Shaylie the necessary documentation and she informed me her colleague, Lucy, would be in touch.
I received an email from Lucy the same day, arranging a telephone appointment for the next day and I explained I had a newborn baby. Lucy was so accommodating and I was able to pick a time suitable for me and was told I didn't need to worry if I needed to cut the call short, she could always pick up later if my little one became unsettled. I was so grateful for this. Lucy was so lovely and friendly, and nothing was too much trouble. It was also just the little personal touches, she always remembered my little girls name and wished us well when it was all completed. Thank you for an amazing service.
I have been very pleased with your service and will from now on be using Spire for all my solicitor requirements. Thank you.

Lucy came recommended through an industry peer. I am pleased she did, as she was an excellent support during my settlement agreement process. Her ability to encapsulate my narrative into meaningful and sensible arguments was impressive. It gave me the confidence needed in an otherwise stressful situation. I felt looked after, received great advice, she has a great sense of humour too, so had a few laughs when needed the most. She comes highly recommended!

I would like to thank Lucy Churchill for the excellent support and guidance in getting my settlement agreement finalised. From the start Lucy gave me confidence that I was in good hands and reassurance throughout the process, I would have no hesitation in recommending Lucy for all employment law issues.

I just want to take this opportunity to thank you, Lucy, for all the time and effort you have put into getting this settlement agreement finalised for me. I know that you would usually charge far more for the service that you gave me and I genuinely appreciate it.
We received excellent service throughout, all concisely explained, Roger Margand helped ensure a quick turnaround as required before our year-end. We were particularly happy with the advice received by Lucy Churchill on the employee elements of the agreement which was very reassuring.

I’d like to express our sincere thanks for the superb advice and guidance Lucy Churchill gave us. Right from the outset, we were overwhelmed by her enthusiasm and the speed that she picked the case up and managed to turn it from almost certain failure to resounding success. We were tremendously impressed by her remarkable tactics. Very many thanks, her herculean efforts at such short notice, and the superb outcome were incredibly impressive, and we are very grateful.
