See what our clients say about us

"Andinee and Kevin were extremely helpful, forward thinking and efficient. They did what they said they were going to do and delivered a fantastic result at tribunal. They are a fun team who are a pleasure to do business with."

“We have been working with Sykes Anderson Perry for many years now. During this time they have acted for us in key areas such as negotiating and detailing Commercial Contracts and Employment Law. They have always been entirely professional, thorough and helpful with all our needs. We have received a constantly high level of service at a cost effective rate and therefore would have no hesitation in recommending their services to businesses and/or individuals alike.”

“Sykes Anderson Perry's knowledge and professionalism are, in my opinion, unrivalled.

Sykes Anderson Perry have helped FMG grow as business through a very tough transitional period. As with many businesses in the current climate FMG have experienced differing pressures, invariably leading to tough decisions needing to be made, some of which come with potential legal ramifications.

However, with the guidance of Sykes Anderson Perry all legal obligations were met fully, thus ensuring the good name of FMG, something that should never be understated and certainly something that we here at FMG value enormously.

Also to ensure FMG always receive a 'blue chip' service the team at Sykes Anderson always make themselves available for 'one to one' meetings in a location of your choice should either they or I feel it necessary.

Finally, I would like to add that I, along with some of my colleagues, have a better understanding of certain legal matters due to Sykes Anderson's proactive nature, invariably meaning we are able to use this knowledge to enhance the internal portfolio of FMG, again something that one can't put a value on.

If you are seeking a comprehensive legal solution with a personal touch I would suggest you need look no further than Sykes Anderson Perry.”

“I have really enjoyed working with Sykes Anderson Perry during the past five years. My everyday requirements have been employment, commercial contract and property services, but I have also worked with them extensively on private client matters.

I have always found the advice sound and practical and the team friendly and efficient. They provide exceptional value for money for the highly personalised service I receive.

As joint proprietor of a small to medium enterprise I find it very reassuring to know that someone on the Sykes Anderson team will be there with confident good advice if things get difficult.

Highly recommended.”

“Sykes Anderson Perry were brilliant. I was very stressed and upset and they were patient, explained things over and over until it had sunk in. Always at hand to answer email or phone calls too, which was very helpful.”

“I worked with Sykes Anderson Perry when they handled redundancy negotiations with my employer.  They not only negotiated an extremely favourable result for me personally, but ensured that the whole process was as painless as possible and that the negotiations were concluded as swiftly as possible, giving me peace of mind and security.   They are extremely professional, tenacious and demanding in getting the best result for their client.”

“I was advised by Sykes Anderson Perry over a termination agreement with my employer. As a novice in these matters, I couldn't have made a better choice.  They were a pleasure to deal with, knowledgeable, balanced and skilful in constructing an approach that ultimately yielded a settlement much higher than I could have expected. Good guys to have in your corner. Highly recommended.”
