Holly Baker is a strong performer. She is extremely thorough, and she anticipates what is needed, and has done it before it is asked. I really valued her calm efficiency. She gets the line between authoritative and accessible exactly right.

Having worked with Holly Baker for the best part of two years, I have found her to be most helpful and considerate in her handling of a particularly complicated dispute. Her attention to detail and knowledge of company law is to be commended. The case is ongoing with a satisfactory conclusion anticipated and I have no hesitation in recommending her services to others in the future.
Our company retained Holly for advice with a difficult case involving our partners. She is excellent in responding to emails and calls and gives clear, constructive advice. I would definitely recommend her and use her again if required.
It’s been a long couple of years but thanks to Holly and the team at Machins I can finally move on with my life. They have been professional, patient, and supportive through a very difficult time with an extremely complex case.
