What clients say:
"I just wanted to express my appreciation of the quality work done by Kate Round. She has picked up two hearings for me recently on short notice with a minimal brief and done a good job in both cases. She also provides very full and detailed reports with her own helpful thoughts on the case more generally which is extremely useful." David Smith - Anthony Gold Solicitors
“I am writing to express my gratitude for the excellent work completed by Kate Round in the case of R –v- John De'Viana. In a unique case, containing novel and complex issues relating to law and disclosure, her diligence and expertise remains greatly appreciated from those instructing. I am extremely thankful for her efforts.
Best Regards” - Daniel Salter, Director, S A LAW CHAMBERS SOLICITORS LTD
