We were delighted with the speed and ease of dealing with Peter Foskett who, with his very professional approach…brought together the sale of a commercial factory and the purchase of a domestic property while making sure all aspects were fully covered. The value for money was excellent but, as anyone knows who has been in this situation, the knowledge that everything is under control and in safe hands is worth much more. We have used Peter’s service before and would not hesitate to recommend him or use his services again.

"Rules are for the observance of fools and the guidance of wise men' - so said the Captain of a Royal Navy warship to me after attending a court martial as part of my naval training. That sentence summarised more aptly than he could have realised my love for the law. Of course it’s essential for a good lawyer to learn the law and keep up to date with its constant changes. But the real aim has to be interpreting and applying it intelligently and imaginatively to help clients overcome the problems and pitfalls typical to property transactions."
