Joint Ventures and Shareholder Arrangements Testimonials

“I needed help with a shareholder agreement for my new business as well as IP advice to ensure my IP was protected. Andrew was extremely knowledgeable and gave concise and clear responses to all my questions. He explained things in plain English to me which really helped!  Andrew provided a great service in excellent time and I would recommend OnHand Counsel.”
Vanessa Moulton

“To get this level of experience and acumen from a larger firm would cost at least 50% more. It’s good to know someone with experience at a high level is directly dealing with your legal matter. Andrew has a wide knowledge of general company/commercial topics and is approachable and flexible. On this occasion Andrew drafted an agreement for me to bring in a new business partner – I needed something bespoke, concise and without too much fuss, and that is what was delivered.” Peter Wastell, Verulam Advisory

“OnHand Counsel provides an excellent service, thorough and professional. Andrew specifically is really everything I would want when reaching out to a lawyer. Friendly, clear, reliable, grasping the situation quickly, providing sound advice and elegant solutions. Andrew was personable, reliable and his advice was spot on – I would absolutely recommend his services.” Adam Norsworthy, Fusion Telecom Limited

“Andrew is highly personable and responsive, quick to assess the matter at hand and has a knack of providing expert advice which is straightforward and not unnecessarily complex. Working together was a positive experience because of my complete confidence in his extensive knowledge and interpretation of the law’. Chris Grimes, SALSA Food

“We asked Andrew to help us with a purchase contract and some shareholder agreements. He responded quickly and was always available either on the phone or by email. He provides a personal touch and we consider him to be our company solicitor and our first port of call!”
Gill McCaughey, Forum Events

“Andrew offers a personal, thorough and affordable service. He explains the issues clearly, responds to queries promptly and delivers on time. He helped me with the purchase of a company and the creation of licencing and shareholders agreements and I would firmly recommend his service to others.”
Dani Zur

“I instructed Andrew on a deal which involved a combination of M&A and joint venture work. Andrew was a very conscientious and effective operator. He immediately understood the objectives and concerns of the parties involved. He added enormous value to the deal process by helping to structure a deal which all parties were happy with, and he put together all the documentation which was needed quickly and efficiently (and very cost-effectively!).”  Franz van Dyk. Director, Alchemea Limited.

“If you want a really good business lawyer at your side, then Andrew is the lawyer for you. I have instructed him on a number of occasions (both acting as MD for large companies and on my own as a business consultant), ranging from dealing with a major customer which was going into liquidation, where Andrew’s assistance was pivotal in urgently recovering a large amount of money, to sitting down with me and drafting an innovative limited liability partnership agreement from scratch in one half day session. So Andrew is clearly extremely competent, and very adaptable in what he can do. With his network of experienced specialist lawyers it really is worth talking to Andrew first whenever you need any legal work done for your business.”  John Fordham, JetStream Profit.

“Andrew is our ‘go-to’ legal advisor and commercial solicitor. His attention to detail and understanding of the wider aspects of law especially what can or cannot be a potential legal minefield in due course after everyone’s signed on the dotted line is incredibly useful. In the past, Andrew has helped us with setting up complex commercial UK and international contracts in addition to understanding legalities when it comes to equity dilution and raising funding. All in all, Andrew is brilliant at what he does besides having a crisp sense of humour and timing it to perfection. Highly recommended.”
Ashish Raina, Ardentisys Limited

“I have known Andrew for many years, and have worked with him on a range of things from corporate transactions to sorting out the constitutions of golf clubs! Andrew has a very strong skills set which he can apply to a broad range of corporate and commercial matters. He quickly spots where the real issues lie and suggests creative and effective ways to resolve them and to get deals done. He is reliable and responsive and I would be happy to recommend him to any business owner who wants a pragmatic business lawyer offering excellent value for money and with a refreshingly personal touch.”  Robert Twydle. Partner, Hillier Hopkins LLP.

“I have worked with Andrew on several occasions when Andrew was acting for various investors on a wide range of deals from a West Indies hotel development to soft furry electronic toys. Andrew is very conscientious, has very strong lawyering skills, is intelligent, enquiring and perceptive, and adds value to any deal. We have always been very pleased with his service and are happy to recommend him.”  Graham Payne. Finance Director

“I have instructed Andrew in the past on a variety of M&A deals. Andrew is an understated but effective operator. He has an enquiring, pragmatic and solutions-driven approach, unlike the ‘checklist’ approach so many lawyers take, which means that he can add value on a wide variety of deals and issues. Andrew is genuinely interested in his clients and the issues they face, and is a pleasure to deal with.”  Roy Simmons. Director, Roy Simmons Marketing Consultants Limited

Andrew is honest, efficient and clear, with a can-do attitude which was invaluable in helping us to cut through the myriad of documents and better understand the intricacies of our legal position. I would definitely use Andrew again in the future. Claire Saunders

Andrew helped us in connection with share purchase options and associated loan provided by major shareholder from whom shares were to be purchased. Andrew provides a very efficient and speedy service. I also enjoy reading his Legal Briefings. Highly recommend. David Goedecke
