KBL offers great legal support for individuals and businesses, but don't just take our word for it. Here's some recent testimonials from our clients.
I wanted to just say thank you to one of your colleagues Gemma. She is just such a delight to work with. She is very efficient, helpful, polite and has great attention to detail.
I was looking for a solicitor to help with a transfer of equity but no one had the capability to do this before Christmas. I spoke to Gemma and from the start she explained everything clearly, was very lovely with the client too. Updated me all the way through and took time out to draft paperwork the other party should have done. This meant the process was quick and easy. This has taken less than a month - I’m so impressed.
My experience with KBL throughout was great. Victoria Melling was very understanding and easy to work with.
As a first time seller I found everything straightforward and clearly explained, thanks for making the house sale stress free and no trouble.
I have been instructed regularly by the Litigation Team at KBL on a wide-range of commercial litigation matters.
Led by Mike Slater the team adopts a refreshingly commercial and tactical approach to litigation disputes all designed to identify and achieve as quickly and cost effectively as possible the best outcome for the client making use, as appropriate, of Court and Alternative Dispute Resolution.

KBL offers pragmatic and effective advice with an exceptional degree of client care.
A huge thank you to Sarah Sayers for assisting with our house purchase.
Being first time buyers we were anxious and uncertain of the home buying process, Sarah’s response to queries was prompt and we were made to feel completely at ease throughout the entire process.

William Hare Limited
I have worked with Victoria Melling on many Matrimonial cases and found her to be dedicated and professional at all times. All our mutual clients have spoken very highly of Victoria and I had no hesitation in using her for my own matrimonial affairs which she dealt with in a friendly, approachable yet professional manner. I would not hesitate in recommending Victoria and her team.

As you are aware, I have been in business for 30 plus years and have used various legal services from time to time. We are very happy with your service and pricing, we will be happy to use your services in the future.
Mr John O'Brien
We were initially apprehensive and pessimistic, but from the outset we were put at ease by Michael Slater when he came out to our dental practice, largely by his confident and amicable manner.
We were not given false hope as we felt we had been by the previous solicitors, and his honesty regarding the possible outcomes raised our hopes for the case, of which at that point we had been prepared to stop pursuing.
We were after some compensation, and hardly thought we would achieve a 5 figure sum. To our elation we were not only awarded a 6 figure pay out, but our legal fees were also reimbursed for the trouble we were put through.
All the hard work and patience displayed paid off tremendously. I would highly recommend Michael to anybody who has lost their trust in solicitors, and is searching for a team that will take them seriously.
I just wanted to thank KBL Solicitors for all their support with the sale and purchase of our house. Sarah was supportive every step of the way giving honest advice as well as engaging with all parties and taking the stress of moving away from ourselves. As well as being competitively priced the service given was always professional. Again thanks Sarah and the team for your service and support.
Mr John Hooper
Philip Stephenson and Anneka Traynor are very good at keeping you in touch with what is going on and generally shepherding you through the obstacles and unfamiliar processes that are required when selling your business.
I found Philip to be very professional, approachable and able to communicate in terms I could understand. I have to say both Philip and Anneka showed great patience when answering my at times obvious (to them) questions. Make no mistake, as Philip told me at the outset, “You will be pleased when it is completed” and I was!
If you have a choice - I recommend you go with KBL.
Corporate & Commercial client
The service received has been excellent, from reception to appointments with Helen Grundy. I would recommend KBL without hesitation.
On behalf of my company Bolton’s Wood Investments Limited, I was recommended to contact KBL Solicitors in connection with a re-dress claim. Michael Slater was instrumental in assisting the preparation of the case for the Company and was directly involved with the proceedings throughout.
Suffice to say that without Michael Slater and KBL Solicitors’ involvement, the outcome would have been much less certain.

PMT Italia S p A , Italy
The family solicitors at KBL flex their legal muscles in what are undoubtedly some of the most personal and emotive situations imaginable.
My instructions to KBL arose from a very difficult and regrettable family separation. Not only were KBL utter professionals; they also dealt with the matter compassionately and appropriately at all times and as a result achieved a very good outcome.
Instructing KBL made a difficult set of circumstances easier to deal with and their support and commitment throughout was invaluable.

Many thanks again to you both for guiding us through this process and making it as pain-free as possible. I've yet to meet anyone who's been involved with a divorce and had anything good to say about the experience, so I think you can be very proud of the work you have put in!
We were referred to Michael Slater when a problem occurred with the sale of a property that was an essential part of the sale of our company. They advised us on a way forward and travelled to South London to attend a round table meeting where they negotiated a settlement that we were very pleased with.
We found Michael very friendly, helpful and professional throughout the process and we would be happy to recommend him.
