Whether you are launching a new venture, merging with another business, investing, restructuring your company or deciding upon your exit strategy, our specialist corporate solicitors are perfectly placed to help you through the process.

In today’s challenging corporate environment we can help you minimise risk, maximise opportunity and achieve success.

I found Ashley’s review of my contract detailed and clear to understand. She made good points and recommendations so that the contract didn’t have any ambiguity in the service I would receive from my lettings agent and it capped my liabilities if there were any mistakes on my part. I was able to negotiate a favourable deal with my letting agent and I feel safe to work with them moving forward.

Ms G, Corporate Client

Thanks very much, it all went very smoothly and you managed to make it a painless exercise by having everything so well prepared.

Mr G. Corporate Client

The service was friendly but professional and commercial. Links to other specialist areas was used as required but was well managed and coordinated. Response to queries was quick.

Corporate Client

Ashley provided a very thorough and professional service.

Miss C. Corporate Client

The service provided was excellent. Communications were timely and easy to understand. The support we received enabled us to complete our contractual arrangements to our full satisfaction. Thank you for a job well done.

Mr T. Corporate Client

You’ve been amazing. Thank you.

Ms S. Corporate Client

Could not speak more highly of the quality of advice and the assistance you have given… well above and beyond what was expected.

Your hard work and expertise with this project has had a massive impact on their ability to deliver the services that we need.

Mr W. Corporate Client

First class understanding of our needs from the outset, sensible and understandable advice, preparation to the agreed plan, subsequent legal paperwork and bringing the matter to completion. We greatly appreciated the methodical approach to all matters and completion within budget.

Ashley Sutherland - Mr F. Corporate Client

Would highly recommend Andrew Heeler for his work with us, and all the services provided to us, surpassed our expectations.

Matt Johnston Howard Johnston Associates Ltd.

I am writing to express my thanks for the excellent work carried out by you and your firm to support Mrs W. and I during our recent acquisition. I would like to take the time to draw to your attention the overall satisfaction we felt in working with your firm and in particular, I would single out Ashley for praise in ensuring that the transaction actually happened and I know that the service offered on the day of signing was appreciated, not just by us but by the seller as well.

Mr W, Corporate Client

Thank you very much for your excellent service during the review of the contract. As I said, you have a tangible (and even infectious!) passion for your job which makes even the review of a legal contract more of a pleasure to work on.

Corporate Client

I would highly recommend using Ashley and Kally at Hegarty anytime. Having used both of their services for such a crucial time of my business I couldn’t fault them at all. They have been so accommodating to my constant emails and phone calls which at times they must have found bit annoying. I wish them all the best and I will not be going anywhere else for a very long time.

Mr R. Corporate Client

Many thanks for your assistance. It’s always a pleasure for me to speak to you (interrogate you), you’re one of the few people that I feel tries to understand what I’m trying to do and provide positive solutions! As a broad generalisation I find it’s so easy for people to find reasons why things can’t/shouldn’t be done but few try to find solutions. Thankfully you fall into the small, latter group.

Mr M. Corporate Client
