Mr B

"I wish to express my gratitude for the manner in which you carried out the administration of the estate of my late wife. I much appreciated the compassionate way the appointments were held such that I was able follow and accept the procedures. I also found your guidance and advice invaluable. I have the confidence to attend any further appointments that are necessary."

Dear Chris Cumberbatch

I know professionals are extremely busy and their time is precious, but it has been virtually impossible to obtain information about how to proceed with the situation of the house.

Your advice and information has been very, very helpful.

I thank you again profusely for all your patient help.  

Yours sincerely,

Ms Burton




Mrs B. –


"Thank you for your excellent service Luke!"




Mr W.S -


"I found Jennifer to be extremely diligent, professional and friendly when arranging my new will at very reasonable cost."

Mr D W -

Thank-you Mike (Thew) for all your efforts with the contract. We certainly ended up with a better agreement for our company and possibly for both sides. As perhaps a fringe benefit you’ve acquired two more admirers, B, P and Lord R!



Dear Chris (Cumberbatch)


"Thank you for your work and much needed guidence throughout the process"





"Thanks for all your work on our behalf, we could not have done this ourselves."






"We've worked with Colin Clark since 2006. Our core business involves commercial property and as Marshall Hatchick's real estate partner, Colin's exhaustive knowledge in this area has proved invaluable in helping us through a wide variety of complex issues. We look forward to continuing to work with him in the years to come."



"Your work has been fully and much appreciated by us all."


Mr E. -

Chris Cumberbatch - 'Thank you for your friendly and efficient service. I will of course keep you in mind should we need anything in the future.'
