"Stacy is very friendly, patient and accommodating. She is extremely professional, her knowledge is extensive and an asset to any client. We worked through creating thorough terms and conditions and answered any questions I had in great detail, spending many hours editing the initial draft. This was our first project with SW19 Lawyers and I will not hesitate to instruct them in future."
[A Commercial client]
“I have worked with SW19 who have always been incredibly dedicated and focused on the task in hand. They provide pragmatic and commercial advice notwithstanding the legal complexities. I highly value their high standard of client service and concern for their clients’ interests and I positively recommend them to others.”
As the director of a small tech firm dealing with very large multinational firms, I was finding it hard to find good commercial legal advice to cover both US and UK law and commercial practice. Luckily Stacy has been an absolute star, taking time to personally go into the finer details of the of transatlantic legalities and commercial realities while bringing her extensive legal knowledge and commercial experience to bear. So far she's been invaluable in moving things forward, being extremely quick to respond and diligent in her work. I look forward to continuing to work with her and can wholeheartedly recommend her services.
