Cripps have always responded to our requests for help incredibly quickly which has been invaluable especially when situations have been fast moving.

All of the advice, help and support has been hugely pragmatic and very clear.  At the same time, Cripps are a total delight to deal with. In truth, we consider them to be true partners with our best interests always at heart.

All at Cripps speak clearly and plainly. Happily, there’s absolutely no legal jargon. We speak about business issues and practical solutions. Doing business with Cripps could not be easier.

A business client

We are in the service industry and hold ourselves and our partners to the very highest standards. And I am delighted to say that I would recommend Cripps whole-heartedly.

A business client

Working with any of the lawyers from Cripps is a collaborative affair – rarely is it a case of us asking a ‘legal’ question and simply getting back a ’legal’ response. 

A business client

It’s more about discussion, with the advice we receive not only helping us to achieve the outcome we were working towards but often suggesting alternatives and highlighting points for further consideration. 

A business client

The ease of access to the experts we need at a ‘value for money’ price makes doing business with Cripps easy – we would have no hesitation in recommending them to other organisations.
