What our clients say about us

'We are very grateful for the resolution of a complicated and difficult legal issue which could have caused significant hardship without your help'

Mr and Mrs G 22 November 2019

L.H 12 November 2019

We found our dealings with Pickerings and in particular Alexa Holgate to be efficient, friendly and stress free!

14 November 2019

I would not hesitate to recommend Pickerings in any matter. Total professional service in all matters. 10 out of 10 for all staff.

D.P 14 November 2019

We have used Pickerings in various departments. On this particular occasion, we were looked after by Emma Harrison and the Probate team. This is never an easy time for a client, and, in our case, with no will available, it could have been difficult. With Emma and Pickerings, every step was explained and discussed. We made our own decisions from the advice we were given. Every cost along the way was made clear as was every possible delay (there weren't any). When emotions came to the fore, sympathy, time and space were allowed. When probate was dealt with, we were given advice concerning Lasting Powers of Attorney which was acted on. Emma and Pickerings really cared for us and we have no hesitation in recommending their services.

G.Hardwell 13 November 2019

My case for me was very distressing but Pickerings (Jonathon) was always kind and supportive and professional.

U. S 01 November 2019

I was made to feel welcome and Ashley made everything so relaxing. She was so nice and patient.

Mrs G 22 October 2019

From the beginning you are greeted by a friendly, smiling and welcoming face on reception; quietly efficient and helpful. We started in Probate with Emma Harrison; sympathetic, understanding, clear advice, never hurried, felt like we were discussing matters with a friend. We have already recommended her to colleagues and friends. We also needed conveyancing with neither sale nor purchase within the local area. Alexa Holgate provided us with clear, friendly and efficient advice; she chased everyone everywhere to keep us on track.

Mr and Mrs H October 2019

Very happy to recommend Pickerings ; everyone we have met has been professional yet friendly! - Excellent service!

Mr D 01 October 2019

'Service was amazing, our sale was a long and tough one, but we got there in the end. Peter was there every step, chasing, phoning and E-mailing. Made us feel at ease when signing papers, ensured we understood everything. Any queries he was either E-mailing straight back or phoning. Amazing service'

Excellent service from beginning of probate process to the end. Also had experience of their Will writing and this was also excellent and as this was for my elderly mother. The home service was brilliant in the solicitor that came out to her home took time to explain everything in a way that a 93-year-old understood.

Would have no worries of recommending your company to friends or family, or indeed using your company in the future thank you for all your help and assistance

We used Pickerings, namely Lucy, for the estate of my late aunt and more recently the writing of my Will. I cannot fault the service I have received. Communication has been excellent and everything explained in terms I understood

Pickering Solicitors are very professional and friendly throughout. I received the help and advice I needed promptly, courteously, efficiently and compassionately. The advice was clear and I was kept informed every step of the way. I would highly recommend them. also they are based on a modern office building with free parking in their own private landscaped, gated site and car park. Excellent location.

We are a medium sized business striving to effectively manage the many challenges presented to it by the various statutory bodies. After utilising a national HR advisory service for many years it was a little scary to change direction and start working with a local firm of solicitors. But we needn’t have worried. Within days of signing up with Pickerings our policies and procedures were being vetted and advice offered on how we might improve.

Knowing that there is help at the end of the telephone is a great comfort. If I contacted our previous provider they invariably quoted text at me or drowned me in information overload. Pickerings take the time to get to know the business, and you, and offer peace of mind at the end of the day. In HR we are working with our most valuable asset - our people, but its not always plain sailing. Pickerings are there to ensure we are managing our workforce in a professional and equitable manner, which can only be good for all within the business.

We are in our second year with the company and have no hesitation in recommending them. Make the change and see the benefits.

R.W, April 2014

Pickerings have stayed with us every step of the way through a difficult and, at times, an emotionally draining, settlement agreement process, lasting several weeks. Their calm and timely approach has enabled us to make good progress and finally to bring about an appropriate settlement. Any query no matter how small or complex, was dealt with quickly and efficiently and we felt completely supported all the way through. I would recommend their service to any employer.

10th December 2013 - K.D

I am involved in a particularly difficult industry in terms of the frequency and complexity of legal issues that go hand in hand with the licensed premises security industry.

Katie has assisted me on several occasions in dealing with a number of challenging cases. I have nothing but praise for her attention to detail and patience in presenting me with the various strategies available to me to resolve each problem, and explaining the various pitfalls and advantages of those strategies.

Along with the regular updates which we jokingly refer to as the 'Friday rendezvous', there is the detailed interim billing which lets me know how much I am paying and exactly what I am paying for. I much prefer this to a surprise bill at the end of a case which is the practice for many firms.

I have no doubt that Katie has a demanding array of cases to deal with at any given time, but throughout my dealing with her she has never failed to return a telephone call or an email, no matter how seemingly trivial my enquiry might be.

I have recently had the benefit of Katie’s support in a claim where her persistence and meticulous management of the case compelled the judge to award in my favour. There is no doubt in my mind that the success of that particular case was due to Katie’s 'tick every box' style of working.

It is comforting to know that, no matter what life throws at me, I can rely upon the support of Katie and her colleagues at Pickerings to provide me with the best possible legal advice at competitive rates. I would not hesitate to recommend Katie and Pickerings to anyone in need of genuinely friendly and efficient legal advice.

11th May 2010 - C.G

Can I just thank you formally for your sterling efforts on our behalf. Not only did you have to put up with interminable delays, but you pulled the deal back from the brink! May I compliment you both on your total professionalism.

Pickerings' Commercial Team managed the sale of Ventura Park Volkswagen in Tamworth and Sutton Coldfield. Craig Davies led the deal, with Sue Albini handling the property elements. Commenting on the team's skill in holding the deal together in this difficult economic climate, P.D

The work was carried out in a sympathetic, friendly manner and with the highest degree of professional integrity. Craig, Sue and the Commercial Team did a fantastic job. In a transaction like this, it helps to get to know the people who are acting for you and to feel that they treat you as an individual. They treated me as a valued client, and provided a service tailored exactly to our needs, updating me at every step of the way. I would be happy to use Pickerings again for any other legal issues that come up in the future.

Pickerings’ Commercial Team recently handled the sale of the entire issued share capital of Shearer (Mormet) Ltd, acting on behalf of the four exiting shareholders. Shearer (Mormet) Ltd operate in the recycling of scrap metals and metal alloys, with a turnover in excess of £12 million. The transaction was complicated by the fact that the company was Scottish registered and held property in Scotland, which involved cross referral with Scottish-based lawyers. Craig Davies, Head of the Corporate & Commercial Team led the deal, with property advice being provided by Sue Albini and employment advice by Simon King. On the successful completion of the deal and the shareholder’s decision to choose Pickerings Solicitors to advise them, Phil Hollins, one of the selling shareholders, commented.
