  • Testimonial

    Gemma acted for us in connection with the sale of our business. The whole process became rather protracted due to delays by the buyer which created frustration and added complications. Throughout however I was very impressed with her dedication to move the deal on and overcome problems when they arose. There were times when I lost patience with the buyers but Gemma was very good at communicating with us and putting things in perspective to keep the deal on track. Gemma clearly knows her job and was very good at interacting with us. She was always happy to act even when she was not in the office herself and I would be very happy for Gemma to act for me in the future. Ian M, Stockport

    Professional. Knowledgeable. Capable. High caliber company

    We recently completed a long and stressful sale of our business. Well it could have been stressful- but with Gorvins ( and in particular Gemma Lingard) we slid through it with ease. That included the buyer changing Solicitor so Gemma had to almost go through the whole process again!
    The whole process was professional, with Gemma at the end of the phone, or on an email within minutes of any transaction from the other Solicitors, or myself.
    When you have experienced knowledgeable people dealing with your case, and you are treated as if you are the only client who matters, you know you have found a great company.
    I have used Gorvins for many years, for commercial, residential and family matters, but never for Commercial sale. Gorvins acted on the purchase of the business sold 30 years ago. Longevity and stability are very undervalued these days, but are important.
    Would I recommend them. Yes 100%
