What our clients say

Convoi Exceptionnel

We are delighted with your excellent service. You grasped our unusual situation very quickly, you picked up on the implications, without us having to spell them all out, and your repeated assertions during our first exchanges… were so very reassuring. Our company needed your expertise. You delivered. Money well spent.

Hollands Country Clothing Limited

Butcher & Barlow LLP has the depth and strength within to deal with all legal issues most individuals/enterprises would require. Having encountered several other law practices over time, Butcher & Barlow have proven to be the most impressive, reasonable, and reassuring of them all. I can enthusiastically say that I would recommend Butcher & Barlow to any individual or enterprise needing specialist legal assistance with almost any legal matter. Whether that may be a historical ‘pepercorn’ rent agreement, a multi-million-pound property transaction, or a change of name declaration.

I have worked with Butcher & Barlow for 20 years on a business and personal level. They cover every aspect of law. One-stop shop & excellent at what they provide from advice to costing. I have always felt secure with them. I trust them with my life and I don’t say that lightly.
