What people say about Richard

“When we were selling our Opticians Practice, it was very important to select the best team to represent us.  We looked carefully at the top firms in this area and were quickly able to single out Farleys Solicitors.  It was apparent from our first contact that we had chosen well.  Friendly, knowledgeable, and responsive, Richard and his team were able to move us through the process with the minimum of fuss and stress.  We were kept well informed of the progress, and from the correspondence, it was clear how much work was being done in the background to achieve an agreeable completion.  Richard and his team were thorough, efficient, and excellent value for money.”

He was knowledgeable and professional throughout and kept me well informed of progress. I received prompt replies to emails and thorough explanations at all stages of the transaction. I cannot recommend his services highly enough.” - Director - Corporate Client

"Richard somehow managed to understand our needs and expectations right from the off. He had a knack of working out how we needed to hear things, explaining things in our terms whilst dealing with the complexities of the sale of a business. We had to manage everything on the telephone and he was patient where he had to be with us, but tough when he needed to be to make sure the commercial sale was a success. We were very pleased with Richard and the Farleys team." - Corporate Client
