What people say about Kirbys…

I have known and worked with both Kirbys and, more importantly, Roger Dooley for more than 20 years now and could not recommend them highly enough! Dealing with Roger is comparable to having an “In-house Solicitor” as I feel I can discuss all aspects of our business from properties to personalities. Moreover, I feel Roger brings a high degree of commerciality that I don’t find common in all legal advice. He is more than our business’s solicitor, he is part of Our Team! Additionally, Roger is exactly what you want in a solicitor, methodical and extremely detailed, whilst his commerciality and his aforementioned integration with our organisation has resulted in us trusting Roger to make unilateral decisions on our behalf! I also find Roger is acceptable to new ideas and has a hunger to understand more than the top level of instruction. All round, Roger is a great commercial legal asset to any business!
