“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.”
