They looked at the facts of my situation and gave me the answers I needed to take things forward. As such, they will always be my go-to guys for any legal advice from now on. 2015

J- Dispute Resolution
Karen thank you so much for your email advice. It has been very helpful to us understanding our options, and I appreciate the efforts you have gone to.You have greatly assisted us in understanding where we stand in the eyes of the law. I will recommend you to friends and family.
A City Law Firm solicitors quickly understood my situation and clearly pointed out my options. They were receptive to my requirements and wishes and helped me to a positive and as acrimonious free solution as was possible.
WL- Dispute Resolution
Having needed to use a number of solicitors over the past few years with incredibly disappointing results, A City Law Firm have proven to me that Solicitors can provide a real service, they can manage the expectations of the client, and they can keep the client informed and respond with sensitivity. I have been deeply impressed with A City Law Firm and would not hesitate to recommend them.
I contacted the City Law Firm when I had to confront a very difficult and stressful employment issue. From the moment I entered their offices I was made to feel very comfortable and supported. My solicitor kept me informed of the progress of my case, I found Laura to be very professional and friendly, she gave me advice and very useful guidance when I had to enter meetings with my employers and line managers. The outcome of the situation was very satisfactory. I have moved forward from a very distressful situation and have begun to build a new life for myself with the help and support of Laura. I have advised friends to call the Firm when they find themselves needing legal advice.
A very professional firm of lawyers. Here the client is put at ease from the very first consultation. I found Laura very efficient and fair in her representation of my case and all in all the firm makes it easier to digest all the information. They have a no nonsense approach and I will definitely use them again. 2013
My work assignment in Hong Kong was due to end and no alternative roles were available in the Company. My employment contract was complex and governed by UK law so I needed a practising UK lawyer to handle my termination agreement. Karen Holden came highly recommended by a leading employment lawyer based in Hong Kong. Due to my location I only met Karen briefly once but through this exchange I was confident in her ability to represent my interests. The advice she gave was practical and straight forward. Despite the time difference and remote relationship, she maintained a high standard of communication throughout the process with regular updates in very plain English. Through her experience and commanding negotiation style she was successful in securing a much higher settlement and more favourable conditions than I had anticipated. Karen also went the extra mile by providing a contact in financial services who advised on managing related tax implications. Overall, a great service with excellent results.
Employment Law- Transgender Discrimination
After working for my employer for some 22 years of loyal service I was made redundant without any due notice or suitable settlement agreement. I was in a total shock and dismay with the company attempting to bully me into taking the unsatisfactory settlement. After contacting A City Law Firm they arranged a meeting with myself they immediately made me feel at ease and took over the negotiation with my former employers, they were extremely professional and efficient and achieved a good settlement for minimum cost to myself. As a member of the LGBT community I would fully recommend them and although I hope never to need them again I would certainly consult them in the future should the case arise. 2017
EMS- Business Law
A firm that has real standards of service, sensible fee structures & always gives due attention to their clients. They are the lawyers of choice to EMS, consistently providing us with a high standard of work & wise counsel.
Shed- Business Law

I would like to thank the firm for their excellent work in preparing a prenuptial agreement and negotiating on my behalf.

I am very satisfied with the result and would recommend A City Law Firm in the future. 2012

Karen handled a very sensitive residential property matter for me worth in excess of £1 million. She was swift and resolved the issues successfully and amicably.

FO- Private Client
From the moment I first telephoned A City Law Firm, Andrew has been a pleasure to deal with. Andrew explained the law thoroughly to me and was prompt in responding to any questions I had. I was able to conduct the process entirely by email apart from at the very end when I attended the office to finalise my Will. This is surely a bonus for people under time pressure.
In addition, when I wanted to make amendments to my Will, Andrew carefully considered these and advised me in relation to their effect. No matter how many changes I wanted, Andrew remained patient and courteous at all times.
I would also like to mention Andrew’s professionalism, from my initial enquiry right through to the finalising of my Will.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Andrew Spearman and A City Law Firm.
I write to recommend A City Law Firm to anyone experiencing injustice or bullying at work. Not only did they always get back to me on concerns I had, but they handled my employer so that I had no further direct dealings with them. They were sensitive and empathetic about what I was going through and respectfully explained everything. The professionalism and dedication of this firm quickly became clear but above all, I felt a genuine motivation to achieve fairness. I did not want to go through an extended legal battle but this was never an issue and they worked for the level of compensation I wanted. This easily covered the legal costs and in fact some of the legal costs were charged to my ex-employer.
I was very pleased with the response and service I received. I found the advice and guidance offered was relevant, informative and professional. All staff members were very approachable, helpful and, despite the difficult nature of the problem, made the whole experience worthwhile. I would highly recommend their services. February 2012.
PWL- Dispute Resolution
A City Law Firm. A refreshing approach to legal information. A City Law Firm offers all the help and guidance you need but with passion and commitment to the LGBT community. A proud partnership that I believe will last a lifetime.
I was in a total state of shock and bewilderment when I first came to meet the family team. The solicitor was very sensitive and caring which made a very painful situation a lot easier. She has been thoroughly professional throughout the 6 months work she did with me. I really felt that not only did she have my best interests as central to the advice she gave, but also that she genuinely cared about how I was feelings at each stage of the process. I would definitely recommend her to anyone going through a relationship ending, especially lesbian or gay clients who are looking for someone who is knowledgeable, supportive and non-judgmental.
I was offered a Compromise Agreement and the employment solicitors at the firm negotiated a much better deal. The terms of the compromise agreement were clearly explained to me in simple language. I was not however, satisfied with the compensation being offered so A City Law Firm offered to negotiate with my employer for more money and a better reference. They did this for me for a fixed fee and within a week I walked away with 60% more than previously offered. The Compromise Agreement was amended and signed within a week so I suffered very little stress or delay. I felt in control of the process as I was advised of what was going on throughout the negotiations. If you have a compromise agreement I recommend their employment lawyers.
After seeing two other solicitors I was completely disillusioned with the legal profession. I then found A City Law Firm who held my hand though a compromise agreement at a very vulnerable time when I was 9 months pregnant. He took the stress away, dealt with it swiftly and efficiently and made the situation bearable.Thank you so much.
The work that Karen did for me in writing a watertight contract of employment for my staff member was done quickly and efficiently. She actually worked over a weekend to ensure that the copy was ready for the Monday morning. Thanks Karen!
Anna- Family Law
Andrew’s approach made all the difference to my experience of my case. From the very first meeting I felt very well informed and supported - on a human level, in terms of my rights and in terms of what settlement would be workable and fair. While always professional he listened well, with sensitivity to the relationships and people involved – a far cry from the ‘cool’ treatment by some firms. Highly recommended. 2017
Herve- Family Law
I want to acknowledge Andrew Spearman from A City Law Firm for his professionalism while handling me and my partner’s legal needs. Such matters can be very uncomfortable and stressful while you are going through the process. Andrew made us feel very comfortable and kept us well informed every step of the way. We will not hesitate to use Andrew and his firm again in the future. Herve. 2016
Andrew Spearman and A City Law Firm were recommended to me by a friend, and it has been an excellent outcome. From my first meeting with Andrew I was very impressed with his professionalism and efficiency, alongside his thoughtful manner, making me feel at ease and in the right place. I was extremely appreciative of the way his sound advice and extensive knowledge carefully guided me through my complicated Will and tax issues. During the process I made many changes to my Will, where Andrew was wise, kind, and above all, patient. He worked throughout with speed and diligence, always contactable, and generous with his time. Andrew was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Andrew and the team who were helpful, friendly and provided an outstanding commitment and service. Huge thanks. Without hesitation, I would use ACLF again in the future. 2017

My partner and I are very pleased with Andrew and the firm. All of the people were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. Andrew gave us great advice and found ways to help us, despite the fact we work long hours Monday to Friday. He was always there to answer any questions we may have and made sure we always had the correct information. We are happy that we chose A City Law Firm and if necessary would use them again in the future. 2013
JC- Private Client
Andrew was extremely professional with me and clearly outlined and explained all details of the will, even to the point when I had changed my mind on certain issues, he re-drafted and double checked all with me. I will definitely be using this firm again.
I cannot thank you and the team at A City Law Firm enough for your amazing attention to detail. I know my employer could not specifically call you out for your professional, fair and thorough dealings, but I personally want to thank you very much.
Karen handled a sensitive residential property matter for me worth in excess of 1 million. She was swift and resolved the issues successfully and amicably.
LH - Employment Law
I would like to thank the team for their professional and sincere manner in which they helped me through a very difficult situation.

The outcome was better than I could have hoped for and I would not hesitate to use A City Law firm again. 2014
KM – Private Client
It was a pleasure working with Andrew Spearman on the preparation and execution of my will. From our first meeting I was impressed with Andrew’s knowledge and his ability to explain matters in a concise way. My will involved some bespoke provisions and Andrew was easily able to talk me through these and advise on all relevant matters. Andrew was also easily contactable by email when putting final touches to my will. I would definitely recommend Andrew for his insight and professionalism. 2014
I would like to thank the team for thier outstanding work negotiating a Compromise Agreement on my behalf. I was particularly impressed by their care in helping me to identify my rights, and by the strength of their commitment to obtaining a fair deal for me. They immediately identified flaws in the employer’s compensation offer and the calculations it was based on, they gave me excellent advice and above all they worked tirelessly to renegotiate a vastly improved package for me. They were very generous in the effort they put into the work, and were extremely astute and tenacious in pursuing the details of my case with my employer. I appreciated the way they combined a highly professional approach with a friendly and sensitive manner. I would recommend the firm in the highest possible terms to anyone facing redundancy.
I want to thank the firm for your advice and help with the settlement process. If I have any friends or colleagues requiring advice in the future I will send them straight to you.
I would like to highlight that Karen Holden who assisted with my query was extremely helpful and really took the time to assist. Karen was actually out of the office at the time of sending the query and responded within hours. This was despite the fact it took the time to understand the query and she provided options as opposed to one solution.
I am so pleased with Karen’s work and help. She was so efficient, caring, quick and very responsible. Whatever she promised she produced it. I will definitely recommend her. Very lucky to have her as my solicitor.
I would like to thank the team for their help in this matter, you have made an unpleasant situation eminently bearable and I have felt that I have been well represented throughout. Due to the nature of the City I am sure that friends will be in the same situation and I will happily recommend you to them.
