“When looking for a solicitor to assist with the sale of our business we had an hour long consultation with partners from 4 different practices in Taunton and Exeter. We were looking for a person who not only thoroughly understood the business sales process from both sides of the fence but would really stand up for our interests. After our meeting with Kirill we both knew that he was the right person for the job. As a small company being bought by a multinational it turned out that we really did need someone to fight our corner and prevent us from being steam-rollered into doing things the way that they “always did it”. Kirill was tenacious throughout the process, only conceding a point when it was tactically prudent to do so. We felt that our sale was in good hands though out and would like to thank Kirill and his team for a successful conclusion.”Bernard and Sarah, February 2018
“We have been represented by Kirill and his team for the acquisition of a business and have received an exemplary service. From initial discussions through to completion, Kirill has been on-hand to answer our many queries and has dealt with a complex situation in a professional and friendly manner. Each stage of the process has been explained to us thoroughly and it has provided huge reassurance and peace of mind to know that we have such a knowledgeable and reliable person on our side. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kirill and Clarke Willmott to anyone.”James and Kate O’Sullivan, December 2017
“I cannot complement Kirill and his team enough for the part they played in my recent company sale. Kirill and Clarke Willmott were recommended by my accountant in whom I hold a lot of trust. I was not disappointed. I approached the process with extreme trepidation, but I am delighted to say I received an outstanding and supportive service from Kirill’s very efficient team. I found it a unique experience to have immediate contact with a direct line to Kirill and his colleagues each providing clear, informative advice through every stage of the process. I thank you all sincerely for making a gruelling process so much easier. I would not hesitate to recommend Kirill and his colleagues at Clarke Willmott to others undertaking similar transactions.”Mrs Hill. November 2017
“Kirill’s work advising us on the sale of the shares in our business was invaluable. He was thorough, diligent, tenacious yet pragmatic. He was available every time I needed him, for matters big or small relating to the sale. He was always able to talk things through in a logical and reassuring manner and has ended up getting us a great outcome at the conclusion of our sale. I cannot recommend him and the team at Clarke Wilmott highly enough and I look forward to working with them again in the future.” Client, M. Morton, 2017
“I would like to thank Kirill and his colleagues for their efforts and approach during our recent commercial acquisition. We are only a small organisation but Kirill went out of his way to be personable and ensured that we had full understanding during every step. He made sure that he was always available and provided practical advice and assurance throughout. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to others and will use his services again if/whenever needed.”Antony Finnis, September 2017
