Words from our clients

At Spearing Waite we are fortunate to work with some fantastic businesses & individuals. Here we share a small selection of their feedback.

“Ever since we started working with Spearing Waite, way back in 2002, it was clear that this was no ordinary law firm. The culture was strong and we immediately felt an affinity. It quickly became apparent that it not only attracts the best academic candidates but that it also only selects those with personality. In a very dry corporate world it is refreshing that, like our company, Spearing Waite encourages its employees to bring their personalities to work and not box them away at the front door. ”

Robert Poutch, Director, Imperial Corporate Events Ltd

“We at Quora have used many of the top law firms including Spearing Waite. Many of our schemes are very complex in nature and we trust Spearing Waite to deliver. We would highly recommend this firm to others”

Jason L Davis, Director, Quora Ltd

“Throughout my five years as Head of Group Risk for FCT Enterprises I have had tremendous affection for the solicitors I have worked with at Spearing Waite. They have given immense amounts of time and patience to ensure that the “preferred” route was perhaps not such the “wisest” route in order to win cases, and their wisdom has encouraged me to advise my groups about picking the right legal battles. Many a time they have simply provided a listening ear, hypothetical options, shared experiences, and of course, many a jovial moment. I continue to consider everyone as simply an inherent part of the team, something that I cannot praise enough”

Ian Francis LLB, Director, Virtual Barn Limited

“I have dealt with Tom Bower and his team for the past four years and I can honestly say they are the best legal firm I have ever used. They are professional, resourceful, speedy, efficient and great value to boot! ”

Tamsin May, Company Secretary, FXL
