- "When I decided to sell my practice I was lucky enough to have been introduced to Andrew Roberts. He conducted a rigorous research process but, more importantly I think, then managed the sale process adeptly to a conclusion which both I and the buyer were pleased with. He was always available with wise counsel and I am sure that I would not have got to the same position without his help. I have no hesitation in recommending him to other managing partners." Clive Matthews,Former MD of FMW Law Ltd
- "We have used Andrew Roberts to assist in the identification and approach to possible acquisition targets and have found working with him very helpful. He listened to our key business objectives and tried to locate and match possible target firms - the resulting introductions were always well prepared." Richard Hill, Managing Director, Gregg Latchams
- "Andrew Roberts worked with us in 2016 and 2017 when we transferred our niche healthcare law practice to another law firm. Apart from his negotiation skills, there were two things that stood out in his professional service. First, he took a great deal of care and time to understand the detail of our business so that there were no unplanned issues along the way and second was the fact that he was always available to talk about the proposed arrangements." Andrew Lockhart, Lockharts and VWV
