After searching for someone with expertise and a solid reputation, we engaged with JL for a Declaration of Trust. We were assigned Andreea Rusu (trainee) but felt we were in safe hands from the outset. The process was relatively smooth - the only wrinkles were teething issues during signing as we had to move to no-contact, fully digital method as it was Covid lockdown. Never-the-less, Andreea was always available to help out and during drafting and signing process, she certainly went the "extra mile or two". Dealing with Andreea was an absolute delight. She was super responsive, professional, helpful and friendly. I would have no hesitation in endorsing Andreea to others. Thank you Andreea you made a potentially complex process, simple, easy and stress-free !

I wish to express my sincere appreciation for the excellent legal services provided by Jonathan Lea and his firm. Jonathan is extremely professional, yet personal with clients. I had an urgent property matter that needed immediate attention. Jonathan and his team provided an initial consultation to fully understand my complex requirements and produced our legal documents expeditiously. Furthermore, the team were ALWAYS contactable by phone and email responding promptly to any queries I had. I would also add that Jonathan is one of the most genuine lawyers I know in the industry. I admire his quest for continuous growth and learning and is certainly passionate about the industry.. I highly recommend the firm to any business or individuals requiring the firm's legal expertise and knowledge.

I have known Jonathan for several years and have sent numerous clients to him who have all gotten back with great feedback. I would highly recommend Jonathan's services. He is highly competent, commercially savvy and very cost effective.You'll also find that, unlike many legal firms, he replies promptly to emails and ... just gets on with the job!Whether it's a startup situation, a matter involving general company law / contracts, or the buying/selling of the shares/assets of a business, make Jonathan your go-to guy! He is mine.

Simon Brooks, along with Jonathan Lea, helped us secure certification for the Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS), which we needed to do retrospectively and without having obtained pre-approval.This was not a straightforward application, and I am sure we could not have achieved HMRC approval so smoothly without their attention to detail, forensic analysis of our application, and encyclopaedic knowledge of the scheme rules. Simon also tidied up our historic filings with Companies House quickly and efficiently. Simon and Jonathan did a first-class job.
