I worked with Paul Sutton for many years whilst he was at McGrigors / Pinsent Masons, in my role as Group Tax Manager of Sumitomo Electric Wiring Systems (Europe) Ltd (SEWS-E Ltd), and also for a period as SEWS-E Ltd Company Secretary. In this time I had extremely valuable assistance and advice from Paul, not only as regards general corporate law matters, but also particularly across a wide spectrum of legal aspects of SEWS-E Ltd group transfer pricing policies, implementation, inter-group agreements and legal compliance.
I have worked with Paul and his team in structuring significant Corporate Debt and have found his approach to be commercial, pragmatic and measured. I would have no hesitation working with Paul again, as we value his commercial and responsive approach.
All-Fill Inc, a US based manufacturer of packaging machinery, has had the distinct pleasure of working with Ivan Hanna and the LCN Legal team in relation to our overseas acquisition projects. Ivan has displayed patience and intricate knowledge of English law as it applies to us as a foreign company. Ivan’s counsel has been calculated and sound, together we tailored an approach that is telling of our company’s aggressive nature. I was most impressed at Ivan’s willingness to dig deep into the details and investigate any way to give our side a competitive advantage while negotiating. Ivan has been our guiding light since our initial engagement.
I have been working with Ivan Hanna over the past year on various corporate matters including a group share restructuring project and intercompany agreements for our transfer pricing compliance. Compared to other corporate law firms I have worked with, Ivan took the time to understand our business, our stakeholders and my needs. He was incredibly responsive and went above and beyond to manage our various stakeholders and turn around a big piece of work in a short amount of time. I have no hesitation in recommending Ivan or LCN Legal – they are what all solicitors should be!
We have worked with LCN since 2015 and always found them to be extremely reliable and responsive to our needs. As a team, they are highly commercial and client-focused, delivering a timely and professional service every time. I am very comfortable with referring my connections to LCN and I wish them every success in the years to come.
Leiza has made a significant difference to our business; her professional and empathetic approach has ensured that we and our clients have invested substantial amounts in our business. We are already seeing the rewards of her guidance.
Insightful, jargon-busting and, above all, approachable. You actively want to work with Paul and the team. An opportunity not to be missed if you are lucky enough to be invited.
It is my privilege to recommend Ivan. He is able to process requirements quickly and formulate an effective strategy that protects one’s commercial interests. He is very personable and exceeds expectations. A great lawyer!
At Caisson Investment Management, we have worked with Leiza across a number of areas including corporate restructuring and commercial agreements and we have always received a dedicated service that is second to none. Having legal agreements that are easily understood and effectively reflect the commercial terms is of great importance and Leiza delivers both effortlessly. It is an absolute pleasure working with Leiza as she guides you through the whole process with ease and professionalism.
It has been a pleasure to work with Leiza on co-investment deals. I particularly appreciated her business-focussed approach and the fact she makes complex legal documentation easy to read. LCN Legal has become our main partner in the UK and I wish them every success!
You are by far and away the most pro-active people I have ever worked with. I normally have to chase.
