We approached the Smith Partnership looking for help with a relatively small, but nevertheless important to us, property related dispute. The advice, guidance and support we received from Surj and Bally, combined with their legal expertise, helped us to resolve an issue that had been a concern for several years in just 7 days. We were particularly impressed by their level of customer service, speed of response and commitment to working outside office hours in order to address our time-sensitive problem. Should we need legal assistance in the future we will certainly contact the Smith Partnership again

Mr & Mrs B 2020

I contacted Smith Partnership regarding landlord advice. Liam was fantastic right from the beginning. He responded to my emails and messages quickly and gave clear and concise advice. He is always professional, friendly and clear about the law. He has provided clear guidance and options and enabled me to make informed decisions based on sound advice. I am really pleased to have Liam representing my case. Many thanks.


Ms Bullmore was very professional and helpful giving me time to ask questions and in so doing putting my mind at rest 

She was very quick and proficient and I can highly recommend her.


Having used the services of The Smith Partnership and in particular Liam Kreibich for a number of years, Liam’s professional approach and advice when dealing with complex and challenging tenancy related cases has been invaluable.

Liam has a wealth of knowledge and understanding of tenancy law and has always provided both us as Letting Agents and our clients with sound advice, guidance and support.

We have always received excellent service and prompt responses from Liam relating to a number of cases over the years. Given the constant changes in legislation and complexities that surround tenancies, I can fully recommend appointing Liam to ensure your investment and interests are protected accordingly.

Bally - Thank You for all your hard work getting this matter resolved. You have truly been a rock in this whole process.


I was very impressed with the service provided by the Smith Partnership and in particular Alexandra Bullmore. I felt that I was truly treated as a customer with the speed of service and turn-around of documents exceeding my expectations.


Liam, I would like to thank you for your service and professionalism throughout the handling of my case.


Liam, I can only say a great big thank you for all you have done. In the time you were dealing with the case, not once did you let things slip and I am sure it was because of your persistence we finally got closure. Once again, very many thanks.


I have engaged Jak's services on two occasions now and on both matters he has provided me with both excellent and sound advice.  He has always remained professional, sought relevant information in a timely manner and taken a pragmatic view. 
Jak has also always taken the time to listen, clearly explain on all legal matters and provided support/guidance through what has been a really stressful time for me. I simply cannot thank him enough for sharing his expertise to navigate me though the situation, kindness and professionalism.

I have used Smiths for several years now and I have the confidence within them to provide consistent quality of advice and professionalism as standard.

Even in some adverse times they have shown stability of strategy and thought which you come to expect from their wealth of experienced partners.

Expectations have been tempered to ensure a satisfactory outcome and most credit for this goes to Russell Davies.

I am content to provide this testimony.

Steve Saint, eurocell

I engaged the services of Smith Partnership to help me with an exit from my employment which had been instigated by my employer whilst I was on maternity leave and trying to return on a flexible working basis.  My case was handled by James Johnson who I found to be meticulous, articulate and thoroughly knowledgeable throughout.  James dealt with my case with care and understanding, doing his best to minimise any costs for myself whilst being fully transparent regarding fees.  I found James to be extremely reliable, honest and client focused.  My case was dealt with very quickly and reached a satisfactory conclusion to what was a very stressful time.  I would not hesitate to either use Smith Partnership again and I highly recommend them, as I cannot imagine any other practice dealing with my case as well as they did.

Miss VO

Thank you Andy Hambleton for the wonderful job and for all your support given to solve this issue.

Sharon Davies has acted for Scargill Mann & Co in debt recovery since 1995.  Throughout our many dealings Sharon’s advice has always been very positive and we have found her knowledge of debt recovery matters to be exceptional!  Sharon responds well to our requirements and like ourselves is reluctant to give up on a bad debt, winning many cases where other solicitors may have walked away.  I can highly recommend her.

As much as anything it is the personal service that Smith Partnership provides that makes the difference. You deal with a person and not some androgynous (disembodied) voice at the end of the phone. They make the effort to understand your business needs.

This has provided a considerable level of confidence at a crucial time for our private investors.
