Testimonials

"Having Devonshires on board has made such a difference. I simply couldn't have handled this case outside court alone. Whilst still a miscreant, the respondent’s solicitor ceased his previous attempts at intimation as a result of David Pack attending court, and it was possible to arrange for the documents to be signed outside court, which simply wouldn't have been possible without Devonshires on board. Philip Barden also kept the pressure on over the last few days to help achieve a brilliant result in court, including a large costs award against the other side". - London Commercial Junior Barrister
