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.

Andreea Rusu from JLN did an excellent job on getting our SEIS/EIS Advance Assurance and the compliance statements. She is very detail oriented and knows the process very well and asks all the right questions. We got the Advance Assurance in a record two weeks and the compliance statements in almost the same time. I highly recommend Andreea and overall The Jonathan Lea Network.

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 !

Simon Porter of Jonathan Lea assisted us with the sale of our business and registering a debenture. He clearly cares about his clients as he checked in with me several times to make sure certain things were completed on time as being late would cause us problems.He was available on the day of signing our business over even though it was a Saturday and I did, in fact, phone him a few times for help and advice.Simon was always very helpful, thorough and professional which gave me, as his client, a feeling of support and safety throughout our dealings.I would have no hesitation at all in recommending him to anyone who requires a knowledgeable and empathetic solicitor.
