I have been working with Lupton Fawcett Denison Till since 2000 in the areas of corporate finance, litigation and employment. I would rate them the equal of any of the larger London firms in their professionalism with the added advantage of superb customer service allied to excellent communication throughout any project, however complex. All the work undertaken has always had a successful outcome because they have always made the right calls as to whether to proceed or not.Peter Howard-Jones
I have known Dan for a number of years and he has been a valuable source of commercial advice across a wide range of issues.
Dirk Mischendahl, Ross and Cashmore Limited; Leeds Ice Cream Company Limited
Dan has carried out a number of share structure matters on behalf of Age Partnership and its subsidiaries. He is an individual I rate highly, deals with matters in a factual way with minimum fuss and is an excellent communicator. I have recommended Dan to others and have had similar feedback. A very good choice of solicitor in my opinion.
Andrew Thirkhill, Age Partnership Limited
Dan has been a trusted source of support and knowledge since we started our business six years ago. He has acted for us from day one and his attention to detail and commercial approach allows him to quickly identify the key points that we need to focus on.

I first came across Kevin Emsley in 1988, but it was only when I was appointed to the board of Renew Plc - in 2006 that we began working together. We have worked together on several projects both large and small. Kevin recently advised Renew Holdings Plc on the acquisition of Lewis Civil Engineering, an £8m transaction to buy a Welsh family based business It was important to Renew Plc that the deal was carried out efficiently, but also that the lawyers were able to empathise with a family run business. Kevin Emsley was a natural choice as he has a lot of experience with companies like ours. In contrast to some of the bigger law firms, we found that his personal approach very reassuring, and it made for a constructive rapport throughout.
John Samuel, Group Finance Director, Renew Holdings Plc
There's an old saying that a company is only as good as the last piece of advice they've given you. I have to say, all the advice that we've received from Lupton Fawcett has consistently been spot on. The main thing that differentiates the firm is their professional yet personal approach; you have people to talk to and rely on for the best possible legal guidance. Kevin in particular is a great mentor, and in fact everyone we've dealt with at Lupton Fawcett has proved to be worth his or her weight in gold. If this is the standard of practice across the whole firm then it certainly gives them the competitive advantage. Based on my personal Experience with the firm, I'd be happy to recommend them for commercial guidance.Ken Brook-Chrispin, Chief Executive and Chairman, Seabrook Crisps

Max is an excellent lawyer who knows my businesses inside out and always deal with my requirements promptly, efficiently and I can always rely on him to just 'sort it out' for me.John Hill, Hill Care Group
We have known the Corporate Team at Lupton Fawcett for many years and they have assisted the Crossroads Group on a number of commercial transactions. The most recent acquisition by the Group was, in my experience, one of the most complicated and sensitive deals that I have been involved with. The Corporate Team, led by Michele Phillips, performed in a highly professional and efficient manner and I have no doubt that their assistance was a major contributory factor in us closing our latest acquisition deal.Andrew Fletcher, Crossroads Group Limited
