"We have been working with the Employment Team at Hopson Solicitors for almost a year now and have been very pleased with every aspect of the service delivered.
I would say the Hopson team have exceeded our expectations in every area and with them, in a short space of time we have resolved a number of long standing legacy issues that we were struggling with and I am confident now that we have a framework that is practical, robust, fully compliant with the various legal requirements that we are obligated to meet and future proof across all aspects of our HR activity.
Whilst Andréa herself is well regarded for the extent of her knowledge, it is her accessibility, speed of response and personable approach, from the factory floor to Board level, that has stood out for me.
Andréa and the Hopson team have proven to have the ability to rapidly understand the issues that we face as a business and this, combined with their refreshingly pragmatic, commercial approach and desire to ‘get things done’ helps to ensure that our business can progress as it needs to in what is a competitive, and increasingly contentious, market place.
In summary, 10/10 for the service and full confidence that we are in very safe hands."Peter Santo, CEO, Schlegel International
"The way in which Guy and his team dealt with our legal requirements was excellent. When requiring sound & prudent Legal advice during a company re-structuring process, the last thing you want is the process to hit a snag. Guy ensured all formalities were clearly laid out and agreed by all parties prior to the transaction being duly completed. Not an easy task when dealing with a foreign shareholder.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Hopson Solicitors to other businesses."Mrs Jose Bosse & Mr Jensen Bosse - Bosse Interspice Ltd

As our business has grown over the last 21 years so has the amount of my time that has been swallowed up fighting for the recovery of bad debts. The prevalence of opportunistic insolvency to avoid debts is a significant threat to legitimate businesses. This has damaged our balance sheet and al lot of time has been lost which should have been spent running my business. An introduction to Tim Wheeler by a customer significantly changed this and a few simple tweaks to our terms and conditions has enabled us to pass over all these issues to Hopson Solicitors who take all this stress and time wasting away.Alexander Golesworthy - Managing Director, Timberpride Limited
We have dealt personally with Tim Wheeler for many years and have had faultless service from Tim and his team. In such an important part of any business it is essential that you can have someone ‘on tap’ to discuss heightened issues at a moment’s notice and Tim will always make himself available on such occasion. I can highly recommend Tim’s approach and manner when it comes to a debt recovery and dispute resolution.Paul Bence - Managing Director, George Bence Group
