A Client

I personally would like to thank you so much for all the work that you did for us. We don't like the stodge/incompetence of provincial firms which explains why we came to you. We both had memories of the past (almost back to the late 80s when Kingsley Napley was a name to be reckoned with!) wanting top quality quick, effective, legal and commercial advice with no messing about and that is exactly what we got - but plus, plus, plus as everyone was so quick to respond, courteous, helpful and ready to laugh with us. Just great!"

Client

We really appreciated your weighing up of the situation and balancing one thing against another. At the end of the day, yes a sensible solution was achieved and we are on to the next thing."

So, all in all a good result and thank you very much again. You deserve to be at the very top and recognised as such.”

Client

I really appreciate the effort that Moira put in on my behalf, especially going the extra mile to turn things around at the weekend, against a background of a cost-conscious client".

Client

I will definitely continue to recommend Kingsley Napley to friends if they are unfortunate enough to find themselves in an uncomfortable position at work.”

thank you for your very prompt, efficient, and professional services.”
