“Bernard McIlroy and Fiona Sutherland acted for us in the sale of our business (of which I was a co-founder & owner) to Schlumberger, the world’s leading oilfield services group. Throughout all of our dealings with Bernard & Fiona, they displayed complete mastery of their specialism, but more than that, I have always found them very likeable & approachable people whose judgment, professionalism and advice I value very highly."
Ged Fogharty, former FD of Diamould Limited

"Fiona went some way to restoring for me some measure of faith in the legal profession when I dealt with her recently because of her ability to listen properly, think complicated things through and give sound advice in an appropriate way, promptly."
John Clapham, Chairman of LabLogic Systems Limited.

“I have worked with Bernard and Fiona for the last twelve years and their depth of knowledge, professionalism and responsiveness has always been first rate. From my own experience deciding to branch out on your own is a big step, however, I have no doubt that the complementary skill sets that both exhibit will serve Bernard and Fiona well in a sector where the ability to provide a personal touch in a nimble manner will be compelling."
Justin Thomas, Co-Founder of Affinity Private Wealth

"They have impressed with their ability to fully understand what we want to achieve and then advise how best to proceed based upon their in depth knowledge of the legal and taxation issues. I always feel I can pick up the phone and chat ideas through and this has been invaluable when the situation is fluid".
Paul Goodson, Chairman of Great Bear Distribution

“Beyond helping to facilitate transactions in a tax efficient manner, Fiona and Bernard understand the need to bring commercially practical solutions to complex scenarios.”
Neil Mitchell, Partner, Rickitt Mitchell
