‘The majority of work I undertake is with Sarah Temple, Partner, and she is an absolute pleasure to work with. We have a constant pipeline of work with Sarah ranging from simple lease renewals through to complex acquisitions and disposals, all of which are delivered with the same level of professionalism and expertise. Sarah fully understands how our organisation works, the things we see as risks and the standard protections we look to secure. She knows where I need extra guidance and support and takes the time to provide this advice on a case by case basis. Sarah is incredibly approachable.'

'I have worked with Lupton Fawcett LLP for a number of years now and in a number of different roles. They have provided a wide range of legal support including contract drafting, property transactions and litigation all of which have been delivered with an incredibly high level of professionalism. As a practice they go the extra mile to provide me with advice and support in a format that I require avoiding unnecessary jargon. A stand out feature with Lupton is their desire to reach a resolution rather than creating opportunities to bill a client. '
