Henry is extremely knowledgeable and has been thorough throughout. I like the fact he has such a hands on approach to my case. I really felt he knew my case from start to finish. When I met Henry I was apprehensive about the situation I had found myself in. Henry put me at ease from our first conversation and I felt confident to know I had a legal expert on my side. I would have no hesitation recommending Henry in the future. Thanks Henry.

I had a client that behaved incredibly unprofessionally at the end of a contract and then hired one of London’s largest law firms to try to push their agenda. Henry and team did what was right and cleaned up their mess efficiently and effectively.

I have no hesitation in recommending Henry at Doswell Law. He supplied prompt and highly valuable advice and was incredibly professional from start to finish.

I found myself in the position of needing an employment lawyer to act for the company to deal with a dispute we were having with a member of staff. I spoke to a couple of other solicitors before contacting Doswell Law Solicitors and found that they either took too long to come back to me or just didn’t make me feel comfortable. I then found Doswell Law Solicitors and never looked back. I found Henry Doswell and his team to be extremely knowledgeable. The firm offered nothing but the best advice to ensure that our business interests were always protected. I would have no hesitation in recommending the firm to any business in the need of an expert employment lawyer. We will certainly continue to use their HR/employment law services going forward.

Henry gave me legal advice further to a very stressful situation at work; the way my employer dealt with this and their grievance process only increased the stress upon me and I was feeling overwhelmed. Henry helped me to make sense of my options and to find a way through this. Further to his assistance, I have achieved a settlement agreement with my former employer and been able to move on and find another job which I am enjoying.
