We felt we were not getting the right advice from our previous accountant and on a recommendation we switched to Passman Leonard, and since switching we have received excellent advice and service.
- Ultimate Destinations (Travel agent)
Passman Leonard advise and monitor our day to day accounting practices, they are quick to respond and offer sound advice and guidance. They run the PAYE scheme and prepare final accounts. All in all they are extremely helpful and supportive, I can rely on them to assist us on these financial matters. I would recommend them to other interested parties and would be pleased to speak directly to anyone requiring a reference.
- APW Leisure (Sports clothing)
I came across Paul of Passman Leonard during a particularly difficult period of my life. My mother has Alzheimer's and as a result I have been unable to work for a few years, and HMRC have not been approving my nil returns. I cannot tell you the compassion that I was greeted with, the speed of the service and the general professionalism. A real Knight rescuing a damsel in distress! I couldn't have wanted a better service
- Travel Transportation & Tourism (Travel agent)
We are delighted to have this opportunity to praise Passman Leonard after giving us 35 years of professional service to both our company and clients and who have always been ready to respond to business and personal queries, in a very very patient and accurate manner
- Ted Hoskins Ltd (Letting agent)
Passman Leonard was always on hand to explain things clearly to me especially when I was having trouble trying to understand Capital Gains Tax. I was also having trouble with the Inland Revenue with regard to Self-Assessment and on both of these occasions they kindly sorted it all out for me. I would highly recommend them as trustful and reliable Accountants and it gives me peace of mind knowing I can rely on them at any time. I was always very happy at the way they dealt with my tax problems.
- Maureen from London (Investor)
We were introduced to Paul at Passman Leonard in 2011. We engaged them initially when we were looking into refinancing and also due to some major issues with HMRC, both of which matters were handled extremely well and saved us a lot of time, money and stress. I can honestly say that the service is of the highest professional standard but with the friendly interaction and co-operation that is lacking in so many accountancy firms (they make sure you understand what's happening and keep the pain to the minimum). We are very happy with our choice and will be continuing our relationship with Passman Leonard and would have no hesitation in recommending them to others in need of accountancy advice and services.
- A Hotel in Earls Court London
After growing dissatisfied with our previous accountants, I switched my companies accounts to Passman Leonard a few years ago after having been recommended by a friend. Our in-house accountant and I have been very impressed with the service we have received to date. They seem to understand our business and have always advised accordingly regarding tax matters, as well as providing business review/performance reports which help to address areas of concern in the business. They offer a personalised touch when approaching our accounts. I would be happy to recommend them to our clients.
- Druce Estate Agents
We have been clients of Passman Leonard for over 25 years. Paul is the partner we have dealt with for nearly a decade and I work closely with him in a number of areas in terms of our day-to-day accountancy needs and also numerous very difficult and sensitive matters we have had to deal with over the last 3 years where Paul has had to give us advice and help direct our group as part of the legal team. His advice and direction and indeed his 'bedside manner' are invaluable and he is particularly adept at providing high-level problem-solving and converting to practical, workable business advice. I would have no hesitation in recommending both Paul Watson and Passman Leonard to your organisation, as I have done to many other colleagues and contemporaries.
- Children’s Nursery Group
I've used Passman Leonard for the last 6 years for my personal and Ltd Company accounts. I'm very happy with their level of service and would definitely recommend them.
- The WFC (Wood flooring)
Chris battles evil utility prices and tries to save families individuals and companies money. He is fantastic and loves what he does, and it shows. I am very very pleased to recommend him and his services
- Adjoa Djan-Krofa, Principal - Pishon Gold Solicitors
Chris will always go the extra mile to help and he is wholly honest and up front if for some reason he can't help. Really refreshing.
- Michael Dempsey, Associate Lecturer at Open University
Chris is always trying to help and easy to recommend. He reduces the impact of energy bills over the long term. His work with charities and churches is helping where most is needed and businesses benefit too. Chris is also a well known networker, making the effort to connect others and add value.
- Jason Cobine, Insurance Broker and The Networking Economist™
Chris is one of these unbelievably helpful individuals only a few of which I was lucky enough to meet on the networking scene. His service is a true no brainer to virtually any individual or company wanting to minimise their utility and telecoms bills (and who doesn't!).
- Paulina Sygulska, Serial Entrepreneur | TSB Grants/SEIS/Government funding expert
Quite simply Chris and the service he offers is great. He makes the process simple, explains the detail and takes care of the rest without fuss or complexity. His open, friendly demeanour combined with the professional experience he brings makes working with Chris a pleasure. I highly recommend him.
- Chris Skarratt, Co-founder & Deputy Managing Director at Silversun Media Group
Just a very brief note to say how impressed we are with the way The Kensington Magazine has developed since you launched it a few years back. The magazine does seem to grow from strength to strength and really has to be the ‘Go to’ magazine, for any business or advertiser wishing to make their presence felt throughout Kensington - renowned for being London’s wealthiest borough.
I’m sure the success is attributable your knowledgeable editorial and the fact that you live ’on patch’ and know just about everyone in W8 coupled with it remaining largely uncluttered by page after page of property advertising.
It’s your point of difference and makes it stand out from the crowd. Long may it continue to thrive.
- Jeff Windsor
Lucy Elliott from The Kensington Magazine is an absolute delight to work with and her enthusiasm is very infectious indeed. This is immediately obvious upon meeting with her. Educated Tutors is a high-end Tutor Agency whose clients’ children attend the most prestigious independent schools. Thus, the Kensington Magazine is the best suited local medium on a par with our clientele. A testimony to that is that the very first enquiry that we received via The Kensington Magazine allowed us to place one of our high-profile maths & science Tutor in Kensington.
- Sophie, Director, Educated Tutors
For the past four years we have advertised in The Kensington Magazine to promote our annual Community Carol Service at St Mary Abbots. We find the magazine a useful promotional vehicle for the local community and editor Lucy Elliott’s contacts have enabled us to identify new sponsors for the event, too.
- Felicity Swan, Head of Corporate Affairs
… just to say that the Kensington Magazine has been extremely effective for our company whereby it has raised awareness of local professional businesses offering their services to the local community. The feedback we receive from our customers is that your magazine is very well received with particular attention to the local news feature you have, we just love it!
- Kieran Ryan, Managing Director, Rickman Properties Ltd
Holland Park Computers have been advertising in the classified section of The Kensington Magazine for a few years now and we have been very happy with the response. For a very reasonable quarterly outlay we have had enquiries from the word go and continue to do so. Clients almost always mention, without being asked, where they saw the ad and that they see it as a trusted source.
- Jon Flinty, Owner Holland Park Computers
Why do I enjoy the Kensington Magazine and highly recommend it? It is packed with very useful contacts and its handy A5 size means that it is very accessible to store for future reference and easily pops into my handbag. The articles are full of interesting histories and anecdotes. The magazine also updates me on new books, recommended restaurants and hidden gems, which are well researched and brought to light for me to think about and try. The Editor has laid out the magazine in a way that pleases the eye and notably she is also an excellent photographer as well. The final perk is that it’s Free! What more can you ask?!
- Susan Llewellyn, Founder of The Susan Llewellyn Academy of Interior Design
Lucy Elliott’s The Kensington Magazine is unique – focused on content that people will read rather than lots of advertising – she is highly professional and totally passionate about what she is doing. I have used the magazine for advertising and Lucy’s advice is excellent in terms of design and content.
- John Leyden, Carbon Accountancy
We have been working with Lucy and The Kensington Magazine for a number of years now and it is somewhere we always look to include in our plans for local awareness for Babylon Restaurant. We have had some great success with initiatives with The Kensington Magazine, including our 'Meet Your Neighbours' event and getting our promotions and activities out in the local media. Lucy is always helpful, great to work with and looks at new ways in which to support us.
- Alicia Anderson, Business Development Manager, The Roof Gardens
Working with The Kensington Magazine has been extremely beneficial for The Milestone Hotel. Our advertising and inclusions within community news has been invaluable. Not only has it continued to introduce us to the local community, but it has also educated us in the delights of Kensington and it’s special residents.
Working with Lucy Elliott has been a delight, her professionalism, enthusiasm and passion for the Kensington community is remarkable. Her support, interest and business introductions are excellent.
- Andrew Pike, General Manager, The Milestone Hotel
The course delivery was excellent and several managers commented that your personal understanding and professional knowledge, coupled with your friendly disposition made an anticipated tedious event very enjoyable and valuable to everyone.
- John Mills, UK Facilities Director, Bookham
We use you for H&S training and have found that the style of your presenter/trainer is more helpful and conducive to learning than other companies we have used.
- John Heath, Shopfitting Manager, Lloydspharmacy
I was most impressed with the flexibility of the course providers. They tailored the delivery of the course around the individual group of workers who attended the session with minimal disruption to the company’s day to day activity.
- Amin Ferdosian, Health, Safety and Environment Advisor, Johnston Sweepers, Dorking
An excellent presentation – kept audience fully engaged and involved. It was nice to see a presentation tailored to real Johnston processes.
- Richard Cardwell, General Manager, Johnston Sweepers, Sittingbourne
It is so refreshing to encounter a company who are so efficient, have such great customer service and really make the whole process so easy for the client.
- Victoria Wilson, Panorama Antennas
Christine, I wanted to thank you for the course I attended with you on Monday & Tuesday, I have to say it was the best course I have ever attended. I gained a great deal of new knowledge from the course and will be putting it into action within the next week or so, I have also booked two members of my team on the course with you in June.
- Maria Chaplin, Facilities Manager, Weber Shandwick
With System Concepts' expertise we have been able to address health and safety concerns and adopt best practices in ergonomics whilst also developing the skills to tackle future challenges.
- Thos O' Brien, Waterford Crystal.
We have been very pleased with the way the System Concepts team have picked up the project and run with it, kept us informed about progress and concentrated on the high priority areas which will have the most impact on the health, safety, productivity and morale of our staff and visitors.
- Nick La Hive, Facilities Manager, Museum of London.
A very impressive piece of work, thanks.
- Nick Mallett,Partner, DMH Stallard LLP
System Concepts works as a key part of the team and brings considerable experience to the design process, always ensuring that recommendations made are commercially realistic and practical.
- Jesus Lopez, Engineering Manager, Hewlett Packard.
Having now worked on a number of projects with SC I have found them to be an excellent partner. Their attention to detail, whilst remaining totally focused on the wider picture, is of a very high order and throughout all of our joint projects they have remained flexible and responsive to my requirements. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services to whomever requires a professional and multi skilled team.
- Jack Wraith MBE, Chair of the Mobile Industry Crime Action Forum
We were impressed with the way in which System Concepts led a group of very diverse individuals, enabling their discussions, appreciating their varied access needs, and guiding them through the complex ideas not only of Ouch's current proposition, but also the ideas we have for future developments. The results of the focus group have been invaluable in influencing the direction of the project.
- Vaughan Simons, Assistant Content Producer, BBC Ouch!
System Concepts' analysis was exactly what we were looking for. Their expert review offered insights into all dimensions of our software. The recommendations were practical and easy to turn into development requirements. Understanding how we compared with competitor products meant that we could prioritise these developments to make most headway on our market.
- Rich Cole, Product Manager at O2
I just wanted to say thank you for your support this week. I think it is a testament to System Concepts and you Guys as individuals that we at LV= are able to trust you to meet our objectives and that they are always delivered to a high standard. Thanks again for the expert review and I look forward to our user testing findings.
- Alan Lay, Web Content Manager, eCommerce, LV.com
Thank you for your assistance. We appreciated the thoroughness with which you conducted the research and tabulated the results. The detail in the report exceeded expectations.
- David Maltz, Novartis Pharma - TRD San Carlos, Director, Device Technology
System Concepts has proved invaluable in reviewing our Grocery and non-food sites providing accessibility and usability guidance on how best to serve a broad range of customers with varying abilities. Where there is an issue they have provided options for how best to improve the overall shopping experience.
- Rob Hornby, Online Test Manager, Sainsbury's
I just wanted to say thank you to your and your team for a fantastic job on Friday. We had a few unforeseen hiccups, but the team went the extra mile and were extremely supportive and professional at all times to ensure that the day was a success and we got some great data for our research.
- Dee Doherty, Outsource Manager, Climax Studios
I’m very impressed by the quality and professionalism of System Concepts’ work and the flexible way they work with our team. Their projects are well designed and results are creatively presented to provide customer-focused inspiration to our design teams.
- Bryce Ashdown, Principal User Experience Manager, Vodafone Group Services Limited
As I've come to expect from System Concepts we received efficient, friendly service from a knowledgable team who understood our requirements perfectly and facilitated both lab and home sessions excellently.
- BBC Newsround User Testing Manager
As an active participant in international standardisation, I find the material about usability standards on the System Concepts website an excellent summary.
- Tomas Berns, Chair of Swedish Standards Ergonomics Committee
Of all the projects I've come across, Something Special was the one where the audience and the producers had the least in common, so it was completely reliant on research and testing. Its success would have been impossible without the thorough, iterative, test driven process, gaining audience understanding and evolving the product as it went along.
- Ian Hamilton,Senior Designer, BBC
Today was some of the best user testing we've had on this project to date. A ton of insight. This was a great combination of good recruitment, a good test script, wires that finally had a lower level of detail, and of course your team's efforts. Yet again, thank you for being flexible with this project. Much appreciated.
- Matt Jones, O2 Customer Experience Design & Usability
System Concepts very quickly got their head around the brief and efficiently completed the study in the agreed timeframe which was great as we were in a bit of a hurry. Combining both lab based and remote testing provided us with the correct mix of detail and quant data to effectively make the most appropriate improvement decisions.
- Senior Customer Experience Research and Design Manager, Leading Mobile Network Provider
I'd like to thank you and congratulate you on a very impressive report. I have seen a lot (and I mean a lot) of reports but this is by far the best I have had given to me. So many thanks for excellent job!
- Ylva Berns, Specialist Usability Experience, Major Appliances EMEA, Electrolux Group Design
System Concepts have a deep understanding of our target children's audience and the best methods to obtain accurate and informative data from them. They also understand how to put children at ease prior to the session and how to avoid the pitfalls that can be encountered once the session's running. I've been particularly impressed with thoroughness of their user testing analysis reports. Very nice people to work with, offering valuable advice and accommodating last minute script amends at short notice!
- John Brennan, design team Creative Director, CBBC website rebuild
The report was a fantastic read. We have started to implement some of your recommendations in the re-design of the system. You also raised some issues that we had identified internally and it was a real benefit to have confirmation that these areas really did need improvement.
- Tom King, Information Systems, Hermes Parcelnet Limited
I have been thoroughly impressed by the whole approach Systems Concepts have taken in supporting us on this piece of work. From the initial call, through Nationwide changing our mind, to the speed you issued the report – the service and quality of content is excellent. Happy to recommend you to colleagues in the future.
- Paula Walden Project Delivery Manager, PPI Programme, Nationwide
Massive thanks to System Concepts for your brilliant work. It will be extremely helpful to me and the project team as this product progresses. I'll keep you posted on how we get on if you like, and of course you will be the first people I call if I get the opportunity to do some more research or out source any testing.
- Nancy Willacy, User Experience Specialist, Wellcome Trust
I gave Jeff some ludicrous deadlines and some difficult display work to do recently as given to me by a client and he proved himself to be up to the challenge and delivered everything on or before time. On top of this he even rolled his sleeves up and helped set the displays up to ensure that the whole process went smoothly and without hitch. It goes without saying that I would have no hesitation in recommending Jeff as a printer.
- Mike Kammerling - Graphic Designer
I don’t know how to thank you for all the wonderful printing you have done for me. It was so easy and effortless working with you. You captured exactly what I imagined and delivered precisely on time.
- Jehan Mir – Jehan Couture
I have now used Windsor Jennings twice for my printing needs. Both times Jeff was professional, helpful and extremely efficient. I would highly recommend Windsor Jennings if you are after great service and a quality printing job.
- Susan Peterson - Empire Red
It was a great service at a competitive price. I would commend Jeff to any small business seeking assistance with any of their printing needs.
- Dave Millett - Equinox
Thanks for an excellent service. You not only adapted very quickly to my requirements, but also carried out the work efficiently and in a very customer friendly manner. No fuss – just getting on with things in hand and prompt delivery.
- Colette Hoepli-Steffan – Steffan Interiors
Where do you go when you need 1000 8 page brochures printed in less than 5 days…over Christmas? Jeff Windsor of course. Despite the fact that I was way behind with the design, copy and general planning of the brochures due to other client pressures, I knew I could rely on Jeff to turn the job around quickly and professionally with no fuss or panic. He delivered as always on time and to budget, even taking the time to show me a sample to make sure I was completely happy with the stock of the paper before he went ahead.
- Pam Vick
I wanted to say how impressed I was with your service in getting our Christmas invites printed with great quality in record speed. Without your work we would have had plenty of food and drink left over! Thanks again and I wouldn’t hesitate using your service again in the future.
- Dr Barny Lucas – ML Chiropractic
Jeff has provided a great service every time I need him. Deadlines are agreed and met and I love the way he makes sure everything is ready when you want it to be. It doesn't matter what printed material you want from Jeff. He will ensure you get just what you asked for. His top qualities are: Expert, On Time, High Integrity.
- Jason Cobine - Cobine Carmelson
Jeff has provided me with promotional matter for a number of my Companies. The results have always been highly professional, very creative, and above all else, contributed greatly to the sales growth of our products or services.
- Martin Hunter – National Intergroup
Interior ID has been working with Windsor Jennings more or less since we set up in the UK. They handle all of our stationery and promotional work which like our products has to be highly bespoke and top quality. I have to say that I have never been disappointed in their service delivery.
- Bernd Radaschitz – Interior ID
We had no hesitation in handing the Business Continuity Project to Windsor Jennings because, not only are they excellent designers, but their attention to detail is also very good. Clearly, with 160 pages, 14 different languages, numerous different charts and forms for businesses to fill in as an integral part of the whole project, we had to have that confidence in the nominated supplier. I’m pleased to say that WJ passed with flying colours and we are delighted with the end product which also received fantastic reviews from the business users.
- Iain Hovell - Rentokil Initial Risk Management plc
I have worked with Jeff Windsor and Windsor Jennings for many years now. We have collaborated, both when I was at Rentokil Pest Control and now more recently at National Car Parks. What I particularly like about them is their ability to be pro-active and think ‘outside of the box’. Inevitably, they manage to deliver creative solutions which work for my business, on a regular basis
- Duncan Bowins – Managing Director National Car Parks
I have used Jeff as my printer for several years and highly recommend him - he is honest and reliable. His top qualities are: Great results, Personable and Good Value
- John Leyden, Carbon Accountancy
Jeff has done my firm’s printing for over 4 years. His work has always been exceptionally good quality and value. He focuses on client service and attention to detail and I would recommend him to anyone looking for printing.
- John Leyden, Carbon Accountancy
We are a small company and were undergoing radical changes within our set-up last year.Fortune Law acted for us on our instructions. They then helped us in ensuring our actions were delivered smoothly.
Good, unemotional, competent advice is what we needed for our business. Fortune Law's team consistently provided this, together with an excellent relationship and an understanding of our business issues.They really took the time to understand our business. They created a personalized transition plan that helped streamline our business processes and prepare us for the future. We really appreciate the time they dedicated to helping our company move forward.They certainly added value, ensuring our actions were well-informed and helped us to unravel complex legislation.
- Mustapha Laljee - Dental Professionals Ltd
We called on Shainul Kassam at Fortune Law when we discovered that a company we were shareholders in had been dissolved. The company was a non-trading entity; however, it held within it the freehold of the block of 4 flats of which we were the owners of the first floor. During its dissolved state, the freehold was technically owned by The Crown and none of the flat owners would have been able to sell or refinance. It was at this point that we decided to bring in professional help and instructed Fortune Law to undertake the company restoration process for us. Throughout this process, Shainul kept us consistently informed and knew the steps needed to embark on having the dissolution reversed. Shainul constructed a well put-together case to the Registrar of Companies in order to reinstate the company and after a couple of months, the company was restored and we were able to continue operating as usual. With thanks to Shainul.
- Hazel de Kloe - Your Property Why
Fortune Law were involved with Carbonate Solutions at a very early stage, most critically, being involved in the drafting of the option and patent licence agreements which required a great level of detail and understanding of what we were trying to achieve. Once these documents were signed off the next stage was providing a framework for us to go out and raise money under SEIS rules. We were delighted that our prospective investors were immediately satisfied with the shareholder and other relevant agreements provided by Fortune Law, enabling us to quickly and efficiently raise the maximum funding allowed under SEIS regulations.
We have been very impressed with their professionalism, thoroughness and importantly for us, the speed of turnaround for documentation drafting. We look forward to an on-going relationship with Fortune Law as our business develops and expands.
- Grant Walker - Carbonate Solutions
On occasion over the past five years we have had cause to refer a number of employment matters to Fortune Law. Paying any subsequent bill becomes a source of comfort for us - not because of its good value but more so because in doing so we know that we will have acted with integrity and in a manner that befits us as a fair but businesslike employer. These matters have varied from simple guidance on probationary periods to handling the departure from the firm of a long standing member of staff. Away from employment matters I had some personal guidance from Shainul on my own shareholder status and agreements prior to an eventual management buy out. What comes from such assured and professional dealings on a personal and business basis is a willingness to refer Shainul and her colleagues on to our long standing clients and contacts for their own purposes.

Fortune Law provides legal assistance for our company and our clients and is keeping us up to date with business legislation, policies and procedures . We found the assistance provided by Fortune Law very professional and their office staff very efficient and easy to get hold of. From our experience we can definitely say that Fortune Law offer a fantastic customer service. We have no hesitation in recommending them to all our clients and friends and have complete confidence and trust in the service they provide.
- Peter Kubalka - Capital Business Links Ltd
Article 10 engaged the services of Fortune Law between September and December 2011 in relation to corporate and commercial matters. They provided detailed advice on the restructuring of the group, guided us through our options before actioning our chosen path and prepared bespoke consultancy agreements for use with subcontractors. In all aspects of the service, we were impressed. Shainul and the team demonstrated expertise in their specialist areas, turned around draft documents quickly and efficiently, and communicated with us clearly and regularly. We will use Fortune Law again the next time we need legal services.
- Dale Smith - Article10
Fortune Law advised the Alliance on its shareholder and membership structure, drafted the constitutional and membership documentation, advised on confidentiality obligations relating to our suppliers and prepared a supplier agreement to set competitive member prices and secure rebates - the Alliance has therefore experienced the firm's services first hand. Shainul and her team are highly professional, very knowledgeable, responsive, and a real pleasure to work with. They have provided the Alliance quality service and have played an important role in helping us get launched - we look forward to using them again. Indeed, Fortune Law is one of our approved suppliers.
- Nashir Boghani - iHotels Alliance Limited
Shainul and Charles have been great. I came into the process of share options a little clueless. I've been thoroughly impressed with their knowledge, their advice, and their ability to move quickly and I couldn't recommend them highly enough.
- Tom Simnett - InItForThe
The legal landscape is not an easy one to orient yourself on, especially when it comes down to technology, intellectual property and the arts. Fortune Law have not only provided us with exactly what we needed in good time, but have gone beyond the call of duty by giving us a deep understanding of the obligations we are bound to and forecasting any collateral issues brought upon by our changes to the Terms of service, Privacy and Usage Policies they drafted for us (might I also add all in a very friendly fashion!). We will gladly work with them again.
- Guy Armitage - Zealous
As a first time commercial investor in the UK market I was understandably very cautious at the onset of this deal. However once I had Shainul and her team on board, I was able to leave all legal matters to them with complete confidence. Despite the pressure of pre-Christmas time, I never once felt rushed. Fortune Law has consistently stepped up whenever I needed their help and no task has ever been too much trouble or not worth their time. To place complete trust in your advisors is not an easy task, yet when you partner with an extraordinary team such as the one at Fortune Law, you cannot imagine working any other way.
- Aqib Fayyaz and Aida Khan - 51 Kensington Court
Just this week we have opened our first "unique eatery" - a sandwich bar in London which is on King William Street just 2 minutes away from Trafalgar Square. I was referred to Fortune Law by a trusted adviser and on meeting Shainul and her team I knew I was in good hands. My business philosophy is to do things simply and well. Fortune Law took complex lease documents and made sure they were easily understood and the practical side well explained. They were an amazing team to work with and I was very happy with their service which far exceeded my expectations. I would like to thank the Fortune Law team for all of their hard work in helping me get my first site off the ground!
- Denis Bezucha - MD's
In October 2010 I had decided to take on a 10 year lease for The Crispin Inn pub, which is based in Sandwich. Due to the current climate, and the pub industry experiencing their own difficulties, taking on a pub lease can be a daunting prospect. I instructed Shainul Kassam of Fortune Law to work on this Lease, and I would like to thank her and her team for doing a fantastic job. The pub has had to go through a number of works, and she has managed to save me in the region of £100,000 in the long term. I have found her and her team to be very thorough and diligent in their work and would highly recommend her company to anyone needing a similar contract to be looked at in the future.
- Rob Lee Griffiths - Currency Solutions
Shainul and the team at Fortune Law have been great. Shainul quickly understood our business, defined the key issues and got to work developing the key documents we needed to get our business started and our investment secured. Though we've only been using Fortune Law for a short period we're quite confident that it's going to be a lasting relationship.
- Farhan Lalji - Ad Avengers
It's never easy to start a business, especially as foreigners. Fortune Law was great in assisting us with the negotiating and completing of the commercial lease for our new restaurant. Thanks to their knowledge and legal experience, their availability, their professionalism and their sympathy, we have been able to go ahead with serenity.
- Jean-Charles Madenspacher & Julien Ledogar - L'Art du Fromage
The business of leasehold and freehold acquisition is often tricky and time consuming, requiring professionalism, patience and diplomacy particularly in the often-tense run up to completion. Shainul's team offer my clients a flexible service to suit all requirements and their personal nature and ability to react quickly to find solutions and guide the process forward means that they are an asset on every deal; no matter the size. They have also acted on a number of corporate issues for me, constantly delivering what they have promised and always on budget. Quite simply, Fortune Law supply the levels of quality in their service that I strive to deliver through my commercial property company, making it easy to recommend them to my clients.
- Jonathan Heap - iXConsulting
Shainul and her team at Fortune Law acted for Pensar in the legal aspect of our office move. Very thorough and prompt in responses. Went above the call of duty in order to complete on the lease on the day that we had service providers booked to start work. Shainul manages a good team and
I can thoroughly recommend them.
- Mark Williams - Pensar I.T. Management
This has been my first time working directly with a firm of solicitors, so I don't have a benchmark, but Fortune Law have been a joy to work with and have delivered everything I asked for - and more! They have been at the end of the phone when I have needed them and are quick to respond to emails. They understand that, as a start-up company, cashflow is tight, so have been totally transparent with fees and have capped certain activities so that costs don't spiral.
- Alex Kammerling - Kamm & Sons, www.kammandsons.com
Having started our own business, one of our first key requirements was to put in place well drafted Terms and Conditions before taking on any client work. We knew the importance of clarity in both agreeing customer orders and setting out the terms on which our business was to operate. We knew what we wanted but didn't know how to express ourselves in writing. After speaking to Fortune Law, we were confident Lifestyle Interiors' Terms and Conditions would help us service our client needs better and also protect us against any unexpected issues that may arise. Instead of a box-standard set of Terms and Conditions, Fortune Law tailored them so that they suited all of Lifestyle Interiors' needs and more. We look forward to working with Shainul and her team in the future and would recommend them to anyone. Thanks Shainul!
- Sadia Afghan - Lifestyle Interiors by ASQ
Fortune Law deliver on their promise. They listened to my specific needs, worked very quickly and without fuss. Not only were they extremely knowledgeable and professional, they were also very approachable and supportive. I will definitely be using Shainul and her team for any future legal matters.
- Karen Haller - Karen Haller Interiors Ltd
Launching a start-up business as a foreigner in London required a deep level of advice from advisers I trust. Fortune Law’s expertise in all legal aspects and their personal approach to help and support my business made me and continues to make me feel very secure. I look forward in the future to working with Shainul and her competent team and building on our great relationship.
- Bernd Radaschitz - Interior-ID
Fortune Law has been our commercial law firm for a number of years. Over the time we have completed a variety of projects including drafting our terms & conditions, supplier agreements, NDA, advice on image use and copyright and helping us to take out a lease on our new offices. I always find them easy to work with, providing professional prompt and insightful service that has helped to support and grow our business.
- Chris Peak - Feelingpeaky Ltd
Fortune Law and Shah Dodhia have developed a strong business relationship over the last few years collaborating on several projects and have indeed referred our own Clients to them. We have found them to be helpful, easy to work with and technically excellent. We look forward to working with them in the future.
- Satish Shah - Shah Dodia & Co
We have used the services of Fortune Law on a number of transactions including two acquisitions. The team, and in particular Shainul Kassam, have been very effective in keeping the work running to our timetable and have responded well to additional workload…….. We have no hesitation in recommending them.
- George Gonzales - Company Health Club Plc
We were referred to Fortune Law by a long standing business advisor when embarking on our latest venture. We wanted to work with lawyers who understood the 'real world'. The entrepreneurial spirit at Fortune Law ensured that we received such; the team are professional, technically skilled and prompt in responding to our needs and queries. It is a pleasure working with them and we look forward to building this relationship.

Shainul and her team at Fortune Law first came to work for 7city Learning in March 2009 following many years of being with one the ‘big city firms’. The main area of focus for us was employment law, although they have helped us with commercial legal issues too. We were immediately impressed not only with their knowledge and experience in the particular area of law we were dealing with but also by their practical and commercial approach to the issues we were facing. Always outcome and solution focused, Shainul and her team helped us achieve legal compliance without compromising our business goals and objectives. With Fortune Law you always feel that you are in safe hands and can rely on them to provide innovative and commercially viable solutions to any issues we may be facing. The advice and guidance Shainul and her team have provided have proven to be invaluable. We look forward to many more years of working in close partnership with Shainul and her team.
- Helen Taylor - 7 City Learning
Fortune Law was very professional in their approach, we worked directly with Shainul who was very objective and provided clarity and direction in order to best protect our business structure. We found that along with their professional attitude, Fortune Law still has a personal touch with their clients. This is a great asset as it provides the context for free flowing information and clear communication. We would recommend their services and intend to work closely with them in the future.

I have always found Fortune Law to be highly professional. They start work without any delay and have an amazing ability to make you feel like their only client, no matter the size of your brief.
- Ashley Winston - Palmdale Motors Ltd
An unpleasant business situation was solved quickly, professionally and with such ease that I would be very confident in instructing Fortune Law in the future
- Ingrid von Bratt - Stay Active Ltd
Working with Fortune Law is a highly positive experience. I first contacted them when I learned about their expanding success from start up.
This appealed to me as I am at start up stage and wanted a company who could understand my needs and who could operate in the real world, not in exclusive legal circles. I found Shainul and her team very professional and prompt in responding to my questions. The advice provided was very useful and a valuable information tool. The Fortune Law team acts as real legal partner and I would recommend anybody to use them.

We at Brebners have a close working relationship with Fortune Law and have always found our dealings to be very professional, trusting and cost effective. They have always been extremely prompt in dealing with the proposals put to them. Fortune Law makes a refreshing change from the dull, grey stereotypical legal firm. They are technically skilled and above all great with people.
- Ash Sonah - Brebners
I approached Fortune Law to help with the lease upon deciding to move my business to a new location. The team at Fortune Law showed patience, understanding and a great deal of professionalism. I am now settled into my new shop and my business is thriving. I would wholeheartedly recommend Fortune Law’s services for legal peace of mind.
- Louise Coultas Pitman - The Cracked Pot
We had a requirement to radically overhaul our terms and conditions for a new website design and build service. We approached Shainul Kassam at Fortune Law with a fairly loose idea of what we needed and were fearful that we would be bombarded by lots of legal jargon. We appreciate as a technology company how important it is to communicate in a non technical way to clients. This is something that Fortune Law thoroughly understand, they rapidly grasped the concepts of what we required, as opposed to what we were asking for! They gave us an estimate for the work, we said ok, almost the next thing the work was completed with minimum fuss, on time and within the estimate, what more can you ask of your legal adviser? A joy to work with
- Mark Kemp
I have worked with Shainul on a range of issues for clients over the last few years - including shareholder agreements, corporate structuring and legal disputes and employment matters. I have always found Shainul approachable and commercial. The team at Fortune Law are responsive and helpful and I never have any hesitation in recommending Fortune Law to my clients.

The system is flexible and has become well liked by end users. I have been able to easily modify the system to support their needs.
- Policy Analyst
Some staff were a bit apprehensive at first. But now, there's no way that any of us would go back to the old system.
- Senior Staff Nurse, Cath Labs, Guy's and St Thomas' Foundation Trust
Whoever is co-ordinating used to spend all day outside the labs chasing information, now they are able to undertake clinical work inside the labs.
- Lab Co-ordinator, Cath Labs
All of my comments were quickly understood and incorporated. I found the CMS to be reassuringly straightforward to follow and use. The training was excellent and I came away feeling I could confidently use the CMS.
- Dr Neil Brener - Consultant Psychatrist
The amount of service they provide for ourselves and all of our charities has been fantastic. We know bad support and it was such a pleasure to start working with someone who actually cares if your internet is working or not and someone who takes the time to explain that language known as IT.
- Evelyn Cook - Third Sector Centres
Moving to Benefactor has made a big difference to us. It has provided us with increased functionality, including the ability to accept online applications directly into the database, at an extremely competitive price. In addition, the switchover was simple; the Gallery Partnership team are a pleasure to work with and understand the needs of grant makers.
- Lisa Suchet - Chief Executive Nationwide Foundation
I chose Apricot because it was simple to use and easy to adapt. It also has an excellent reporting function which is fundamental if we are to use the data we collect effectively. The implementation process went very smoothly. The training you gave to staff was well received and we all valued your presence when we logged in for the first time. Feedback from staff so far is that they love it!!
- Tanya Harris - Mental Health Lead JAMI
Services provided by Company Express (UK) Ltd. were in full scale - starting from share issues and finishing with bank accounts etc. Everything was done in a very professional and efficient way. I strongly recommend Company Express (UK) Ltd.
- General Director - Education services
The customer service and attention to detail that Company Express (UK) Ltd. provided were extremely good and helped greatly in terms of managing our business investment into the UK. We will continue to work with Company Express (UK) Ltd. in the future and have recommended them to business associates of our own.

If you are looking for hard working marketing then you get it twice with Caspia Consultancy. Once in the form of Pam who will pursue the best solution to the Nth degree using her longstanding, tried and tested network and twice when the work she has promised has arrived and is driving your business forward.
- Barnaby Wynter - Comms Unit
I worked for several years alongside Pam Vick building brands like Cadbury's Flake and Perrier. Her understanding of of the requirements for building and maintaining brands was second-to-none in my experience. What's more she achieved results without giving any more than minor (and temporary) aggravation! From my recent dealings with Pam and some of her clients she has lost none of her very sure touch.
- Bob Stanners, Former Creative Director, Leo Burnett London
I have worked with Caspia Consultancy and in particular with Pam Vick on a number of occasions. I have always found the contribution and value they bring to the marketing activity as invaluable. I would recommend that whatever your challenge, give Pam a call, I always find it one of the best calls I make.
- Chris Moore - Marketing Professional
Pam helped us define, launch and establish a Youth brand in the UK market. Her experience, knowledge, network and insights were critical to the successful of our venture.
- Peter Miles, CEO, Subtv Ltd
Caspia Consultancy was quick to understand and react to our company requirements in relation to marketing and Web site design. As a result we have found an immediate in sales turnover, since our web site went live two weeks ago. I would like to say Caspia Consultancy have far more attributes than you list above.
- Ian Hamilton, Economy Hire Car & Van Rental
Pam has great organisational ability, experience, is very can-do, is calm under pressure and has the knack of making the consistently right choice.
- Trevor Mill Graphic Designer Ltd
Pam was quickly able to understand the values and proposition for my new Executive Recruitment and Interim Management business venture and, in extremely tight timescales and with her excellent connections, project managed the creation and delivery of a new logo, strap line, web site, headed notepaper and a whole lot more. I had prior knowledge of Pam's abilities through other projects we had worked on together and chose her because I knew if anyone could make it happen, she could - and I was not disappointed. I am now using her to help with a promotion and brand awareness campaign.
- Gavan Burden Burden Dare Ltd
Pam hits the ground running. Her exceptional understanding of how businesses work, especially internationally, mean that having her work with you is like the "power of ten". We asked her to help us on insight and planning for a global brand. In half a day she absorbed all the material, priorised the learning, come out with core ideas - and was already writing the presentation! She is exceptionally fast and experienced.
- Ailean Mills, Upstream
I worked with Caspia when I was at Adshel. They are reliable, professional, good value and, importantly, great fun to work with. I highly recommend them.
- Nan Lindsay
I suggest you forget everything you’ve just read and listen to what she’s got to say. Pam has never failed to sell anything good as long as I’ve known her. She doesn’t need my help now.
- Ben Walker, Creative Group Head, Honda and Nokia
Pam was an inspirational leader who drove the marketing team to achieve beyond our expectations both personally and for the business. She managed to get the best out of all us through a blend of her marketing knowledge and her leadership style. I know all of us have benefited enormously from our time working for Pam.

Building brand equity is important to Pam, but delivering overall business results is critical. In my opinion, this attitude is what makes Pam so valuable to any organisation and management team.
- Bengt Baron, President of The Absolut Company
The brand from being totally unknown achieved European brand leadership in 8 months, and became the most valuable asset of the business.
- Giles Clarke, Founder and Chairman, Majestic Wine and Pet City, former CEO StepStone ASA
Pam has always been a determined entrepreneur who has galvanised projects with her energy and sense of opportunity ……she possesses the professional skills of someone who has honed their career on major blue chip business yet she is not reliant on process and systems. Pam can achieve great things starting from a blank sheet of paper.
- Steve Gatfield, Chief Executive, Leo Burnett London
Pam has been my marketing consultant for over two years and also acts for some of my clients. Pam has worked exceptionally hard and delivers real results – return on investment is a genuine result. Pam’s advice is commercial, pragmatic and straight forward – she is happy to advise clients not to adopt a particular strategy they are considering even where she could generate fees from it - it is refreshing to do business with a consultant who is professional and has complete integrity.

Re Lasting Power of Attorney
Just a very brief note to thank you for the excellent advice given on the above matter. Jeff and I had been talking about doing it for such a long time and yet it took no time at all and was all so very easy in your hands. All of the documentation was clearly marked. All we had to do was put pen to paper.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to friends and colleagues alike.
- Fiona Windsor
Adam has been my financial adviser for three years – I have had very bad experience of IFA’s in the past who try to get the best commission for themselves. Adam does not work on commission, only fees, and therefore has no conflict of interest. Adam has always been exceptionally quick in turning things around, delivers real client service and value for money – to the point where previously I never recommended an IFA to clients – I now only refer client to one IFA – Adam.
