  • Anon - Property Litigation

    The service I got from Lupton Fawcett through Daniel Edwards was excellent and led to what I think was the best possible outcome in our dispute. The legal advice and informal advice on procedure and communication with the other party was thoughtful and appropriate at all times. Daniel was available for consultation almost all the time and when he was not, the promptness of his response was also excellent. His formal communication was appropriate and effective and his tips on strategy were valuable.
