Teri Hunter is quite simply Brilliant!!!
Teri has worked with us on two multimillion pound purchases this year and has demonstrated excellent legal and financial knowledge, and sound negotiation skills. Teri has a problem-solving approach to all issues, and is always very supportive and responsive, with a deep understanding of the changing needs of our business. She has excellent attention to detail and is skilled at finding solutions to any legal or business challenge. I would have no hesitation in recommending Moorcrofts, particularly Teri Hunter to others.
We have been very pleased with Moorcrofts legal expertise, knowledge and service levels over several years. Andrew Katz in particular is a very capable and knowledgeable lawyer, with deep expertise in law related to software, data protection and open source law and is able to provide legal advice that makes business sense. Moorcrofts have helped us negotiate several important business agreements in a practical and sensible way, and have also helped us draft standard contracts and given specific and very helpful advice in some specialist areas of software law. They have also been able to refer us to some helpful international lawyers over the years. I would recommend Moorcrofts to any software company.
I have worked with Teri Hunter many times over the course of the last nine years and often refer our firm’s clients to her. We’ve collaborated on many matters in that time including share schemes, sales and corporate restructuring, and exit strategies.
She is extremely personable, with communication skills that serve to make complex legal issues accessible. Equally, her astute understanding of commercial and financial issues, as well as a good working knowledge of corporate tax issues, enables her to effortlessly explain multifaceted concepts. Overall, Teri is professional and commercial in her approach and works efficiently to short timescales. I shall continue to introduce her to my clients.
Moorcrofts were recommended to my wife and I by our property agents Deriaz Campsie and I am delighted that we appointed them to handle the drawing up of the lease between us and our new tenant. As first-time commercial landlords and as the property concerned is our main pension provider the importance of finding the right firm to handle our case cannot be under estimated. From the very first communication with Julia Ferguson I knew that we had chosen wisely and that we were in safe hands. Her legal knowledge and expertise were first rate as was to be expected from a firm as well regarded as Moorcrofts. However, what really made Julia stand out was the excellent level of personal service that she gave us; from the simple things like replying to emails and voice mails promptly (a rarity it seems these days) to her very patient and empathetic way of explaining the more complex issues we were having to grapple with for the first time. We were always made to feel that we were Julia's only client. The day we signed the lease I told Julia that she was the 'glue' that had held the whole deal together.
Matt Jenkin is a great lawyer. He not only has a very sound knowledge of employment law but is also highly practical. When I engage a lawyer, I want someone who can apply extensive knowledge in a commercially astute way, and this is where Matt excels. I also really value his integrity and judgment. Matt takes the pain out of transactions because he recognises that clients want solutions that work for their business, leaving the legal process to the experts. Matt is such an expert and is, without any doubt, the best employment lawyer I know.
