What our clients say about us

Coffin Mew provides good partner led innovative advice. Nothing is too much trouble and if the answer is not immediately known then after due research considered advice is given. The quality of the firm is demonstrated by the partners and professional staff who service the client. The thing that I like most about the people that we have dealt with is that they are tenacious in seeking a recovery for their clients no matter how many fruitless arguments are placed before them. Insolvency is highly specialised and requires practical, timely and commercial legal advice, often while under severe pressure. I am happy to instruct and recommend Coffin Mew as I believe that they achieve this and each time I instruct them I do so with confidence.
