We have worked with Victoria on a variety of different projects over the years and Victoria’s professionalism, experience and reassurance always gave us confidence, none more so than during a complex sale of our hotel group.

We have worked with Victoria as our legal adviser since setting up our business in 2016. She is professional, commercial and always has ours and our clients best interest at heart. We have never considered using anyone else, there can be no higher praise.
We followed Victoria Symons to Cripps since which time she has looked after our legal affairs in terms of all of our investments. Her work has been exemplary, on time and first class. We couldn't ask for more.
We have been delighted to work with Cripps (and principally Victoria Symons) since we opened our advisory business in 2016. They provide an invaluable service for us and our clients which has enhanced our client offering greatly. They are responsive, proactive and friendly, we can't recommend them highly enough.
