Thank you to our wonderful clients and referrers who gave some lovely testimonials about our teams, including:

‘Mullis & Peake have solicitors who specialise in a wide array of disciplines. As regards commercial litigation, they are able to deal with high-value, complex and multi-party disputes with relative ease.’

Martyn Trenerry is an experienced commercial litigator who can turn his hand to anything. He is hardworking and proactive.’

Holly Minney is also an impressive solicitor; she is very clever and great with clients.’

‘Litigation is rare for us but Mullis & Peake are always our first choice when it does occur. I have found Esther Marshall to be very diligent and knowledgeable and have an eye for detail, primary qualities that are needed in litigation from a client’s perspective. I’ve also found Esther very responsive, approachable and personable. Whist this has been an exceptional last 12 months for all the wrong reasons, I have seen few if any signs that it has impacted on the quality of work or response times.’

‘The team has two significant advantages when comparing them to other practices; firstly their speed of response which is both commercially vital as well as comforting. Secondly the individual practitioners communicate internally so you can always be sure that you will receive expert advice.’

‘They are well-trained and well-supported. The firm has a positive can-do ethos. The individuals I have met appear to support and encourage each other. When a problem arises, they deal with it. They engage with the issue in front of them. They are not a box-ticking, 9-5 firm. Their associates and partners are always available on mobile. They get back to you when a problem arises. They seem on top of their work. This is very different from other firms I work for.’

Martyn Trenerry provides exceptional work in difficult and highly contested matters such as probate, injury, commercial litigation including matters where party conduct is in issue. He has several decades of experience and it shows.’

Holly Minney has a genuine expertise across a range of civil litigation topics. Careful and methodical but also quick witted when needed.’

Jessica Thrower offers practical legal advice to her clients to produce a swift resolution to proceedings.’

‘A small but experienced team committed to finding solutions tailored to their clients’ individual needs.’

Jessica Thrower is knowledgeable and approachable. She has a warmth and understanding of her clients’ cases, which is outstanding.’

‘I find them efficient and available to deal with my commercial property needs in a good time frame.’

Andrew Fidler has been my ‘go to’ person ever since I took over managing our property portfolio around 10 years ago. I find him approachable, diligent and very knowledgeable. Most importantly he is very accessible. He is also my primary contact within the firm so pretty much everything that I need legal advice on I speak to him first. If he can’t advise (which is rare), he will know who can. I trust his advice and appreciate his ability to foresee problems before they occur. In particular his work in getting things through over the last year in such difficult times has been valued by our company.’

‘Our primary contacts are Jo Wood and Andrew Fidler, both of whom have always been freely available and happy to discuss issues before they start charging.’

‘Our main point of contact for dealing with our needs is Andrew Fidler who is always on hand to assist us in matters of conveyancing together with large land acquisitions in relation to purchasing for house building. Andrew is extremely experienced in this field and we have every confidence in his abilities to protect our company when large sums of money are involved. His approach is both professional and friendly at all times.’

‘Very personable and organised team. Efficient systems, very responsive to emails and coordinate well with reporting to clients.’

‘M&P were recommended to me. I phoned them and gave a very brief overview of my requirements and was promised a call back. The return call was from Andrew Fidler and it was obvious that my overview had been relayed to him. We arranged a meeting. I came away from the meeting with confidence of Andrew’s commercial competence. Legal competence is, or should be, a given commercial competence and understanding is harder to find.’

A big congratulations to all of these teams in helping the firm to achieve success and recognition.  We are looking forward to developing all of our teams with a view to climbing the Legal 500 rankings in the coming years.
