I can’t praise Shyam Gadhia enough for honesty made a billionaire a small man after winning a large sum which was owed to us. This company had 2 Barristers to fight us but Shyam was not intimidated by any of them.If you ever have the privilege to have Shyam Gadhia, you WILL have a very smart man to defend you. I put my money on it….Thank you Shyam, Askews Legal could be privilege having you…..!

This is now the fourth time we have used Askews Legal LLP and cannot recommend them enough. Pardeep Kandola is second to none. He dealt with the sale of my mother’s house from Probate right through to completion. Pardeep is very responsive, efficient and approachable. He kept me informed throughout the whole process. Thank you for all your help and hard work. We will certainly be using Askews in the future and will highly recommend you to family and friends.Adeana & family

Askews aided in the smooth running of selling our family home. We rarely had to contact them as their updates were informed and frequent. Any questions we had were dealt with quickly and effectively by Ayesha Butt. The fact that it was a fixed price fee was also appealing as we didn't have to worry about any unforseen fees,as you sometimes get with other solicitors.I would definitely recommend.

5 stars just on the basis that an actual solicitor called to have a discussion with me and actually took an interest in our case when others had been rude and just hit us straight away with costs. The person i spoke to was Neenu and she is a complete asset - she's been responsive and helpful ever since our first discussion. Can't thank her enough.
