  • 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.

  • I work for a Registered Provider (RP) of social housing with properties all over the country, my work with WHN specialises on breach of contract and debt recovery. I have instructed WHN to recover debts from corporate clients via a winding up/high court petition or county court work. WHN have assisted us in recovering thousands from debtors which has had a positive impact on our cashflow. I would highly recommend WHN if you are looking to recover debts or check your legal position to do so.
