Client Testimonial:
“Kitsons were quick to fully understand the transaction we required them to carry out for us.
From the point of our instruction, they were extremely diligent, and hardworking, in getting together the enormous amount of legal documents that were necessary within a short timescale, to complete our transaction.
Throughout the complicated process they gave us an enormous amount of good, solid, and commercial advice, to help steer us to a successful completion date, on time.
Stuart Mathews lead an accomplished and professional team, who were always on hand to answer the many questions that we hit them with on a daily basis – Hannah Sellick was instrumental in helping us get our “ducks in row.”
