What they say about Suzanne

We recently appointed Suzanne Dibble to deal with all the legal requirements of a project. The diverse task has been tackled with great energy and knowledge – meeting each mutually agreed deadline, and all within the original quoted budget. From day one, Suzanne’s willingness to be challenged and debate during the process of compiling our documentation quickly demonstrated to us her professionalism and competency. We look forward to working with Suzanne and the firm again in the future.” John Palmer, MA C.Dir, CEO, exec4

It was a pleasure to work with Suzanne – she quickly understood the concept of the company and drafted an agency agreement which exceeded my expectations. She has been very proactive and available and met the deadline I gave her even though it was very tight. She really did provide excellent work and I do not hesitate to recommend her!” Managing Director of Giv’Organic

I’m so lucky to have found Suzanne.  Her involvement in our franchising has made all the difference to us making it happen.  Suzanne took the time to understand the business and asked lots of questions to ensure we had considered every business and legal aspect of franchising.  She really understood the pressures of a small business.  She delivered as promised, responded very quickly to emails, didn’t confuse us with legal jargon and was very fair and clear with the costs.  After 4 years and 3 other solicitors I have finally found one I can recommend and that I will use again.” Sam Willoughby, founder of What’s on 4 Limited

Suzanne has been prompt, efficient, patient and always available when I have needed to speak to her and her jargon-free manner meant I was able to understand all the legalities behind the documentation that was drafted for me. I would most definitely recommend Suzanne to my colleagues and I will be for sure taking up more of Suzanne’s services in the future.” Payal Patel, founder of Enfusion Events Limited
