    Andy Mackenzie’s commerciality and input into projects with which I have been involved have proved invaluable. He is practical, professional, extremely efficient and applies a good balance of having broad legal knowledge and offering practical advice.

    Very good, very professional.


    We were recommended to use Butcher & Barlow by a friend when we were considering the need for us to update our Wills. From our first approach to final completion of the process, we were dealt with in a timely, courteous and friendly manner. In particular, Ben Davenport-Lawton took time to explain our various options and possible future implications for ourselves and our families of whatever decisions we made. Ben was knowledgeable, friendly and professional at all times and we would certainly be happy to use their services for any further legal services which we may require in the future.

    I contacted Benjamin at one of the most difficult periods of my life; following the death of my mother. From the outset, Benjamin provided outstanding service, whilst being empathetic to mine and my family’s situation. He was able to navigate the whole legal process professionally and efficiently. I was really impressed with how he reassured me and also how quickly he was there when needed. I really felt that I was in safe hands with Benjamin and he is a credit to the firm. I would highly recommend Benjamin and Butcher & Barlow to friends and family and in fact, have instructed him for mine and my husband’s own affairs. Thank you so much for all of your work, it is greatly appreciated.


    I contacted Benjamin for some advice regarding a will. He was very clear and thorough. I came away fully understanding what was required of me. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and colleagues.


    We recently used Andy MacKenzie and his assistant Courtney to complete a sale of a commercial property for us. From instruction to completion took less than 3 weeks! They were professional and efficient throughout and we will definitely use their services again. Can highly recommend!


    I highly recommend Andy McKenzie as he has just helped resolve a case with our commercial landlord. He was friendly, professional and really quick to respond to us. We are delighted with the outcome and will not hesitate to use this firm of solicitors again in the future due to the help and advice we have received.

    After an accident in work I contacted Butcher & Barlow for advice. An appointment was arranged to speak to Andy Mackenzie one of their solicitors. Andy explained the procedure which made me feel comfortable & confident he would do his very best to get me the best outcome. My case lasted 4 years. During this period Andy & his team kept me well informed. Always available & offering me the best advice during this time building the case against the defendant. I was sent to all the relevant specialist & represented by a top barrister in court. I won my case. I feel this was due to all the hard work Andy had put into my case. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Butcher & Barlow as they provided an excellent service. In the future if I needed any legal advice. The only solicitors I would use would be Butcher & Barlow
