Thank you for the wonderful service that your firm has provided us.

Client Testimonial Shri Guru Ravidass Cultural Association

I am incredibly grateful to HCR Law, my solicitor Clare Emery and her fantastic team, including Motunrayo, Imran and Rhondda, for their exceptional support and expertise in helping me purchase my new dental practice. They guided me every step of the way, providing invaluable advice and ensuring that my best interests were always protected. I would like to specially thank Motunrayo for her instrumental role and unwavering support throughout the entire process, being prompt, responsive and patient in answering my questions, and keeping me informed at every step of the transaction. I highly recommend their services to anyone seeking a knowledgeable and dedicated solicitor for their business ventures.

Client Purchase of a new dental practice

Thank you so much for all of your support with our transaction. Our Chair of the Building Committee and myself are so grateful for both your professionalism and for the personal commitments that you both made to support the School.

The matter required a quick resolution to ensure that the school was able to secure the facility promptly, as otherwise there was a risk they would lose their existing use of the site altogether. However thanks to the work of Morgan and James, as well as assistance from the wider team of Paul Watkins, Steve Thomas and Oliver Daniels the school was able to secure the site and the assets of the outgoing operator in a timely manner.

Bromsgrove School Sport centre acquisition

Emme has proven herself to be a thoroughly professional property lawyer handling a wide range of property types and values from modest residential to high value commercial units.

Approachable and readily contactable, she is easy to work with, and I would have no hesitation recommending her to other lenders or clients who require a reliable, technically competent and very thorough property lawyer.

Mark Walker Lloyds Bank’s commercial banking division

Just wanted to send a quick note over to thank you once again for your hard work in delivering the deal in time for Christmas!

Throughout the process you were both incredibly helpful and pragmatic which has led to the deal getting done. Thank you. Look forward to working together again in the new year.

Successful nursery acquisition following Real Estate Partner’s expertise

We valued Suzy’s clear advice and guidance throughout the process greatly, and highly recommend Suzy and HCR to any organisations who may need similar support.

Client Sublease negotiation

Ben Thomas and the team at HCR were able to help and support us with all areas of the lease negotiations, legal advice and successful completion of the deal and did so within budget, in a friendly and professional manner and I would use them again for any future real estate work.

Martin Loader, MD Devonvale Bakery

We really appreciate your help with all of this – and have recommended you and the team to several of our contacts and friends already, and will continue to do so when asked. We’ve been really impressed with your commitment, patience and professionalism throughout the whole process, despite the numerous hiccups along the way. You and your team have been fab.

Joanne Kerley, Director Tank 2 Create

From our first telephone call, Tahlia was very professional and helpful, giving us sound legal advice.

Throughout the process, Tahlia was not only proactive, efficient and precise but she patiently took the time to explain in plain English the reasoning of the process. All in all, she provided us with excellent legal services and I would thoroughly recommend her.
