An unflappable nature is a prerequisite for handling large property portfolios.
Would like to thank you, Charlie and Marios for all the help extended. It was great working with you all and thanks once again for all the help. I know you were not there at the tail end but others pitched in and it was conducted smoothly.

Contentious Probate Testimonials
I was recommended to use Healys LLP, for a rather delicate probate issue. The expert advice that I received from Mr Ben Parr-Ferris prompted my decision to move forward with the matter, despite my initial anxieties. He instilled confidence from the outset and this continued throughout the process as he clearly knows his stuff! He was always keen to listen to my concerns and all legal correspondence were shared with me prior to sending. This was indeed something I greatly appreciated as it is nice to be kept totally in the loop.
In a nutshell he made a very difficult situation bearable by answering any concerns I had along the way in a timely fashion. I would therefore not hesitate to use both Ben’s and the firm’s services again should the need arise.
Corporate Services Testimonials
Tracy Evans and Healys helped us to navigate the legal world of e-commerce as a limited British company. They have made the process of launching our business in a smart, protected way so smooth. Initially Tracy met with me to better understand our needs and in doing so she also clarified for us how legally all the parts of our business should interact. We put together an action plan for the legal documents we should have in place before launching, and Tracy also gave us practical recommendations on legal best practices for our industry. We started working together immediately and we were instantly blown away by her professionalism and dedication. She was extremely thorough in her drafting of the legal documents, and was flexible in making changes when they were needed. We will be working with Tracy and Healys in the future as our business grows. We couldn’t have done it without them.
Founder of an online business in the health and fitness sector
Tracy Evans came very highly recommended to us by our accountant. At the time we were meeting with a selection of law firms; given that we specialise in the legal market the bar to entry was very high. We chose to work with Tracy for a number of reasons, firstly it became apparent very early on that she understood our sector, the challenges we faced and was able to not only offer legal but also practical advice. Secondly with Tracy she effectively made herself a dedicated resource, the personal approach meant we felt like she was as close to being in-house counsel for want of a better phrase. The quality of her advice has stood up to scrutiny and her responsiveness meant we could make key business decisions effectively and in a timely fashion. We operate out of London and Dubai which throws up its own legal challenges as well as having clients in most jurisdictions on the planet. Being supported by solid UK legal advice has ensured we operate and cooperate professionally with clients that range from the largest financial institutions on the planet to law firms, all the way down to small family offices and funds.

Nick was a massive help winning us a settlement over a property dispute. He was professional throughout and very informative, putting our minds at rest whenever we needed it. He was always contactable and a pleasure to deal with. We would highly recommend him. He is clearly an expert in his field, knew exactly how to negotiate the terms of our settlement to our advantage, and someone we would definitely use again.
I just wanted to say a big thank you for the support you have given us all as a business and also the advice dispensed. I think your help during the mediation session was second to none, as well as the support during the strike out etc. At all times you were very professional and indeed gave us all some comfort factor. I would without doubt recommend Healys to anyone in the future.
The UPS Company
After being left out of pocket by a negligent local solicitor, I instructed Robert Johnson to act on my behalf to try and retrieve the monies that were owed to me. Robert and his team not only kept me informed and up to date throughout the whole time but was successful in retrieving nearly the whole amount in an out of court settlement. I cannot thank Robert Johnson enough and would recommend Robert and Healys Solicitors.

Insurance Disputes Testimonials
Jerome has always given us practical and accurate legal advice in regard to the legal and quantum aspects of disputes. He is very practical and commercial and has a very good negotiating abilities. His strategic and tactical focus is on reaching an acceptable settlement as soon as reasonably possible, with a view to avoiding us suffering the costs and risks of a trial lasting several weeks.
John KeehanFinance Director at Keltbray Group (Holdings) Ltd
I was very impressed as to how quickly you were able to obtain a grasp of the situation and advise me of the key facts and legal issues. Your advice to me as to how my case should be conducted was excellent.
I “hired” Jerome O’Sullivan , to provide me with expert advice and guidance in a compensation claim against a well know and high profile bank. From the outset, he gave me excellent advice, and predicted how the claim would proceed. He was entirely correct, and whenever I started to consider accepting the bank’s offer, Jerome told me to ” hold my line “. He did this on at least three occasions. His understanding of the law, his sensitivity to his client , his constant updating me of the situation and above all his experience of claims such as mine ensured that we achieved the optimal outcome.
Your approach to practical and insurance issues was concise and helpful and phrased in simple language in order that I and my team could understand the issues. Your advice on the settlement issues was comprehensive and sensible in order that a reasonable settlement could be reached.

Personal Injury Testimonials
I would never have dreamed of being in such a position… you have indeed provided me with more over the past year than just pushing my case forwards, but you have pushed me as well like a mentor.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the time and effort you have spent on my case and for the excellent service I have received. The small details, such as immediate replies to letters etc. make dealing with these kind of situations much easier and therefore thank you once again.
I would like to thank you for your kind and helpful assistance…I am now able to visit my son in Australia with my wife and the grandkids.
Further to our recent correspondence I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for bringing this matter to a successful conclusion. I have received and cleared both settlement cheques, and am pleased with the overall outcome. You have been both professional and efficient throughout, indeed your advice and final push maximised the final settlement to my benefit. My arm is still not yet perfect, and is still pretty weak, but at least the settlement covers all my costs and gives me the opportunity for some recuperation, and push the unfortunate events of 2011 into the past. Thank you again, I should point out that I would be very happy to recommend you to others if the situation arises.

Professional Negligence Testimonials
I just like to say many thanks for the service you give me in obtaining the money which I thought I had lost you have restored my faith in solicitors which was at a low before contacting you once again many thanks.
Robert Johnson was confidently recommended to me by a partner at one of the Big Four accounting firms, and from our first meeting I have understood why the introduction was so positive.
Once Robert saw that the core of my case had merit, he showed that he had no fear of taking on a different, also major, accounting firm, and that he was steadfastly results-oriented. He cut through the parts of my claim which were unlikely to produce an outcome, and explained why. From my knowledge of the issues he was able to devise his own coherent and tough-minded strategy, and I was pleased that from the outset he steered our preparations towards a settlement rather than a trial. As a private, non-corporate client, I also appreciated his sensitivity over costs, not least his willingness to work on a CFA.
Naturally I have strong convictions about my case, and Robert has been very good at respecting them – even appreciating them – while never allowing my layman’s instincts and passions to cloud his lawyerly judgement. My sense is that the constructive collaboration which has arisen between us has made the presentation of the case more compelling – for all that at the time of writing this has yet to be proven…
I have every confidence that Robert will see the case through to a successful conclusion, and am enjoying my association with him.
At our first meeting with Robert Johnson we were sure that if anybody could help us Robert could. Robert agreed to deal with out professional negligence dispute on a Conditional Fee Agreement and got to work immediately; keeping us informed every step of the way. His professionalism, confidence and knowledge in this field are reassuring and our faith in Robert has never waivered. Although the case is still on-going we have complete confidence in Robert and would recommend him to anybody.
Charles and Janice Anderson
In the summer of 2012 I contacted Robert Johnson regarding a professional negligence claim in relation to a high value land transaction, involving a joint venture deed of trust agreement I had previously entered into. Robert was able to grasp the situation very quickly from day one, and has been able to take forward my claim with a consummate understanding of the technical details. It is often very difficult to find someone who immediately understands your position, and more over gives you the confidence and assurance to take forward a large value claim with all the associated risks that are involved, even when you know your action has merit. Moreover knowing that he was prepared to enter into a ‘conditional fee agreement’ to share some of the burden of the costs going forward in the commercial litigation process cemented the trust that you need to have before you can contemplate this type of expensive process. Although my claim is not concluded to date, the process, help and direction received so far from Robert has been second to none.

Real Estate Testimonials
As a small scale property investor, an efficient, empathetic and fairly priced Solicitors service is vitally important to my day to day business. My experience prior to Healys amounted to little more than solicitors showing off how much they knew about their area of expertise. With Healys at the helm I found that the most difficult situations were nothing more than solutions waiting to happen.
Special mention has to be made with regards to Tracey Cipolla, who since our initial meeting has been instrumental in tailoring solutions to meet my ever changing needs. I’m equally pleased to say that the process is completely seamless irrespective of the personnel. This firm has been a cornerstone in the growth of my business and I really do see Healys as part of my extended business family. In summation Healys delivers every time, on time.
Kiri has dealt with me on a personal and professional basis now for approaching 20 years and have to say I have never dealt with a better conveyancing solicitor in all the years I have been at the helm of running mortgage broking business’s from my early days at Alexander Hall right up to date at Charles Cameron. She is without question the most driven and dynamic lawyer I know and would recommend anyone to use her if they need to get a deal done as she combines rare strengths of tenacity with great customer service.
Simon NimmoManaging Director, Charles Cameron
This is the second property transaction Lauren Fitzgerald has conducted for us and we cannot praise her highly enough. We will not hesitate to use her services again when we buy our next house.
Thank you very much for your help in getting through to the completion. I think you were professional, helpful and diligent. You were responsive and always provided concise, easy to understand (non-legal term) answers. It was particularly helpful for a first-time buyer and I am sure I had asked lots of random questions yet you still tried your best to help. I also understand from my estate agent that you were efficient, one example was when you requested the management pack when drafting the contract. You were also quick in drafting and providing financials in order to speed up the process. You also paid attention to details, which I think is an important skill to have as a solicitor, and ensure that appropriate actions were taken. Thank you very much again for your help! I have spread the word about you and hope my friends would choose to use your service when it comes to conveyance.
Jane Baker was absolutely fantastic from the word go, getting the conveyancing process underway before the ink was dry on the client instruction and always making every effort to meet our target completion date – not easy when so much depends on the actions of 3rd parties. Regular updates were provided and all queries responded to within hours (sometimes minutes) with calm professionalism, enthusiasm and a disarmingly friendly attitude. Basically you can tell that these guys work very hard behind the scenes to make things happen. The result was that of all the hassles involved in a residential move, for us the conveyancing was the easiest and most worry-free aspect. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jane and Healys to anyone.
