‘You’ve done an excellent job in dealing with this so quickly and pragmatically’.
Stephen Dash – The Dash Group February 2019

‘My mortgage broker recommended me to Paddle & Cocks, and I am so glad they did! I will certainly be using them again, as Penny was so efficient, and extremely thorough in her advice. In my experience of using a solicitor for legal advice and debt collection in my business, I have had to chase like crazy, and experienced delay after delay… not with Paddle & Cocks. I have had excellent service, advice and great communication throughout. Thank you Penny’.
Amanda Kerrison May 2019

‘Penny sorted out the legals on a share sale of our company. This was a time critical instruction and Penny went above and beyond to make sure everything was done within the timescales we had. A very professional job. Well done.’
