It has been a pleasure to work with Holly. I’ve always found her to be very approachable and obliging. She responds to my requests for support in a way that increases my understanding of the legislation that we have to act on and implement. Where there is scope for interpretation or options to consider she is forthcoming in highlighting these and I have always found her willing to spend time discussing these with me. Over the years she has been really helpful and supportive.

“Alex handled a very sensitive and complex legal situation exceptionally well with the utmost professionalism. Alex did not over complicate the issue and instead explained in plain English all legal concepts and as a result we achieved a fantastic result. Alex remained extremely focused and was determined to get the matter finalised in a timely manner even to the extent of ensuring completion during a period of pre-booked annual leave. Thank you Alex, a true professional and excellent as always.”

"He (Andy Gilchrist) is a great lawyer. He is very thorough, detail-orientated and ensures clients understand the issues."

Chambers and Partners 2021

I had excellent advice and support from Andy Gilchrist on an employment matter. Andy explained the risks and issues at hand very clearly and was pragmatic and commercially focused in his approach to resolving my situation. His negotiation skills are second to none and as a result I achieved much more financially than I first anticipated. He is very approachable, was always quick to respond to my emails and also took the time to talk through issues over the phone. I can not recommend Andy highly enough, we worked well together as a team and achieved all our objectives.

Emily

‘Andrew Gilchrist is my go-to person for employment law. He always responds to my calls or emails same day, so I am never left in the lurch, and issues get dealt with very quickly and effectively. In the last 12 months, we have had several needs for advice and he always gives us the time we require to explain the law, the risk and the possible outcomes. His communication skills are superb and his plain speaking is very appreciated for non-legally-trained clients.‘

Legal 500 2021

"In my eight years of using Lupton Fawcett, I have had nothing but a positive experience. Whenever I get referred to a different team or colleague whom I have not worked with before, they are completely up to speed with my company and are very responsive and helpful. Their fees are very reasonable too. All in all, an excellent experience at every level of the organisation.‘
