What you have said about working with Jayme...

Jayme Nicholson is extremely approachable and is always able to provide the advice I am looking for. She is also very good at spotting an opportunity to bring my skill-set into the mix'

Jayme is personable yet professional. She appreciates that our business operates in the real world and that no HR situation is entirely text book. Jayme has always given us timely, accurate and complete advice and has helped us develop our Human Resources department in a proactive way. I am always happy to recommend Kitsons as a firm and am regularly heard singing Jayme's praises. In short she helps to make my professional life easier and my business better. (Emma Trebble, Trucksmith)

Jayme has incredible empathy for us as clients. This is unlike solicitors we have met and used in the past who don’t understand the difference between the legal world and real life.

Jayme was very understanding and explained everything in a clear and concise manner. I was kept up to date as the matter progressed and would definitely recommend Kitsons to friends and family.
