The following are all comments that we've received from clients about the Real Estate services we have provided to them.


"I’ve dealt with Andrew Lawson of Switalskis for over 10 years now. Andrew is extremely knowledgeable and I can always rely on him to let me know exactly what we need to do and when. Andrew’s eye for detail and his proactive approach is invaluable when it comes to opening new restaurants on time, with the minimum of fuss. I can’t recommend him highly enough."

Peter Atkinson, Acquisitions Manager, Nando's


"It’s unusual for small law firms to bring the level of expertise that Claire Murphy has and her practice is both heavyweight and fleet of foot which is a perfect fit for us. Claire knows the property sector inside out; her knowledge of property law is second to none and she is a trusted and valued name and we’re really looking forward to working with her on more projects."

"Shipley College was initially recommended to Claire Murphy by two of our trusted external property advisers. She was  recommended for her high quality of legal advice and her impressive client service standards. We have been delighted with her approach to our projects and her grasp of our needs and objectives. Her commercial advice has resulted in  significant cost savings on two transactions. We are now using her for all the work on our property portfolio and consider her to be an integral part of our property team."

Ian Durham, Director of Physical Resources – Shipley College


"Abigail has worked with us in relation to various commercial property matters for our bakery business. As an established family business, it’s vital that we deal with people we can trust. Abigail has earned that trust through her attention to detail and clear communication. We would happily recommend her to anyone looking for professional advice on commercial property."

"Myself and my Company have worked with Claire Murphy for a number of years and have always appreciated Claire’s no -nonsense and personal approach to our work. Over recent times, Claire has worked with me to develop and refine a form of documentation which has been a significant part of the attractive consultation offer we are now marketing to Land Owners who believe that they have an ability to enhance values through obtaining residential planning consent. Claire is and will remain an important part of the team we use to bring residential solutions to landowners."
