Business Testimonials


Corporate & Commerical:


Thank you for your assistance with our recent commercial issue.  The outcome was exactly as we wished, and we are more than confident that this was due in very large part to your time and efforts, underpinned by two key factors – your substantial breadth of knowledge and experience, but also your very client-centric focus. In many years of commercial leadership, legal meetings have often been a frustration between what was needed and what was actually achieved.  You more than broke that perception, exploring our requirements and advising on the most appropriate and timely actions to secure those outcomes.

We have always rated MLP, but your recent work with some of our clients and now for us has very much highlighted the breadth and depth of your skills and service levels – from your legal knowledge and experience right through to James ringing to check after a key meeting in the process.

A professional service with a personal touch

Stephen, Just a personal note to say thank you for the way in which you handled the sale of my company. Your advice and guidance proved invaluable throughout. It was obviously a time of apprehension and uncertainty for myself, but the professionalism and the level of communication provided by both of you helped give me the confidence to see it through, and your outstanding negotiating skills mean I can now look forward to a relaxing and comfortable retirement. I would certainly recommend your company to others. Thanks Again

– Chris Cole – Character World Limited


Very professional, re-assuring and totally sound

Mrs L S


Just a quick email to say thanks. It was very useful to meet with you the other week, and we’re very pleased with the maintenance agreement contract that Awena has constructed for us.

The contract met our requirements with only minimal amendments. It was reassuringly readable, which meant our client didn’t need to constantly refer things to their solicitors. As a direct result of this there have been no delays in getting the agreement sorted and commencing work promptly.

I expect to be contacting Awena again in the next few months to draw up Terms & Conditions and trademark registration for our new software services.

– Jonathan Powell – Level B


MLP Law oversaw the legal aspects of an application I made to the EU Media fund. If successful the grant is worth over £400,000 which is a substantial sum of money for our company.

The application was made to a very tight deadline but throughout the process MLP were invaluable and unstinting in their support. All legal documents were delivered ahead of schedule with minimum fuss and maximum efficiency. Their Professionalism is to be commended and was a refreshing change from the lacklustre service I had become accustomed to from our previous, city centre firm of Solicitors.

– Peter Saunders – Mackinnon and Saunders


Thank you so much for keeping the difficult situation with an employee to a minimum level with your expert knowledge, good negotiating skills and patience.

As an accountant, I’m not easily shocked and I was very relieved when you reassured me that I’m not the only business who needs help in the way I did.

You explained the situation extremely well and I felt that you shared some of my frustrations, which made me feel much better about the situation.

– Mrs Kay, Managing Director (May 2017)


Gareth listened and cared which mattered a lot. He was efficient and always kept in touch calling me and replying to emails quickly. He explained what he would do for me and any options I had. He allowed me to ask questions if I needed to and made me feel supported during a difficult time.
– Mrs I


I run the UK admin and finance team for an international business. Gareth has always been on hand to resolve employment issues quickly, whilst understanding the other demands on my time. Gareth also provides feedback and updates on our policies, procedures and Contracts of Employment. It’s reassuring to know that Gareth does a great job and we are up to date with the law. I would highly recommend Gareth to anyone as dealing with him has been a pleasure.

– Simon Kane, National Administration Manager at GKR Karate


I have worked with MLP Law for the last two years as our Legal Employment Lawyers. We work very closely together and almost feels that Karen and Gareth are part of our team. They are reactive and efficient, providing us with rationale advice and support on a range of employment related cases as well as project work including contracts, handbooks, polices etc.  to keep us up to date.

Karen and Gareth have a very solid understanding of our business and the hospitality industry, keeping us not only in line with the law, but also industry trends to help shape our strategy and the way we do things. We have regular meetings, training sessions and monthly legal updates which I can share with my team.

They are down to earth and professional providing a great support to fast paced and changeable business and I would highly recommend MLP Law, in particular Karen Bexley and Gareth Matthews.

– Lindsay Southward, Group P&D Director – Malmaison & Hotel Du Vin


I was having major issues with my employer and my union gave me very little confidence in their ability to deal with them. I had not called upon the services of an employment lawyer before and I was put through to Karen at MLP, from a friend in a large corporate organisation, who told me that ‘she was the best’. From day one I felt confident that I would have all the support I needed from someone who was able to empathise with my situation, whilst being realistic about possible outcomes. Over the time I was with MLP, I met several of their employees and I knew I was in the hands of a great team, experienced and very personable. Karen was able to agree a settlement not only for me but for my wife, who was with the same employer, meaning we could move on with our lives after a very successful outcome.

Mr K


Thank you so much for all your help with the Compromise Agreement, for fitting it in at short notice and for getting everything done so quickly. Your advice was much appreciated, it’s at times like this that it makes such a difference to have someone who knows what they’re talking about on your side, and who gets things done!

Mrs E N

The Employment team took out all the worry of the process

Mr C G

Top qualities:Great Results, Expert, On Time – “I recently needed advice over a lease. In our experience this is usually a painfully slow process with endless frustrations whilst details are ironed out. But not this time…..This time we were introduced to MLP Law. They dealt with the lease negotiations in a really professional way. We were given great advice on what we should and should not agree to and were always kept informed and advised on progress. This was really important as we were up against a tight timescale. MLP are a professional but approachable firm and it struck us that they took a real interest in us and our business and genuinely wanted to help us get off to a great start. We will definitely be using MLP for future legal work and are happy to recommend them to any business looking for a quality service at a great price.”

– Mr P C

Real Estate:

My co-director Jon Landy and I instructed Richard when we were in the process of buying and converting the building that is now the HQ for Acumen Financial Partnership Ltd. The matter wasn’t straightforward but Richard was on the case from the minute we asked him to act for us and gave us such outstanding service, we have continued to recommend him ever since. I can recommend Richard and MLP Law Ltd without hesitation.

– A Maher


MLP Law has provided legal services to both myself and several companies I am a Director of. Richard is my senior point of contact and is always available to support us via either himself or the team at MLP. We are very happy with the service we receive and I’d highly recommend working with both Richard and MLP.

– A Brown

Richard is an extremely driven, knowledgeable, capable and commercially minded solicitor specialising in property law. When I’ve worked with Richard the transaction has always occurred in a fast and efficient manner. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Richard. His approach is outstanding.

– C Reay


We have employed the services of MLP Law on various occasions in the areas of landlord and tenant, renewal of leases, acquisition and litigation. On all occasions we have been extremely satisfied with the approach to each commission and the professional manner in which they have been delivered. We would have no hesitation in recommending MLP Law to others.

I recently completed the buying of my dream home and as part of this transaction I used Anna to conduct the legal requirements for this purchase. Anna was very keen and enthusiastic from start to finish and kept us informed at every single stage. We were amazed by her work ethic of going above and beyond even replying to emails literally the late evening. We want to say a huge thank you to Anna and the team at MLP for their excellent work. We really do appreciate everything you have done for us and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

So, I can highly recommend Anna for all your conveyancing needs and will not hesitate to refer everyone I know her way! Thanks Anna (and your team) for all of your hard work – very much appreciated.

Gina Campbell, Director at Plan and Protect Solutions Ltd.



As a part-time BTL residential property landlord I used MLP LAW legal services to sell a property on my portfolio. Working in the nhs, I compare customer service to what I would wish my patients to receive…mlplaw has been exemplary – specifically timely (!) and courteous with a personal-though-still-professional touch, even via email! Summary, closure and or course settled payment was concise and exceedingly prompt! Very well done!

– Mr Biswas


Pete and I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you and everyone that supported our purchase and Sale. We were warned by everyone about how horrendous Solicitors are and to prepare for a nightmare. How wrong they were, you guys were honest, efficient and constantly in communication with us.

– The Wilsons



Lucy, can I just say a big thank you for dealing with our house sale. You have been very efficient in everything and a credit to your company. (April 2017)

– Mr A


You have changed mine and many others opinions of conveyancing solicitors with your proactive and pragmatic approach to client focused conveyancing. Having been blown away by Anna’s services, I have recommended her to many friends and peers that have confirmed how good she really is.

– Mr Casey – Director


Lucy, Just wanted to say a huge thank-you for all your help getting these two transactions over the line on schedule – we really appreciate your effort and dedication to the project.
