  • I have used WHN Solicitors twice in recent times for assistance in two challenging legal cases faced by our company.  In both instances, our assigned solicitors Paul Matthews and Sara Beaumont were very helpful and were able to break down the complications of the legal jargon into something easily understandable to allow us to make the correct decisions to move forward.  In both cases, they were prompt, professional and easy to work with.  We would have no hesitation in recommending and using WHN again in the future.
