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
