Niki was a wonderful support at a time I really needed expert legal advice. She ensured a fair outcome and was always available for discussions about my case. I can't recommend Niki highly enough.

Howat Avraam Solicitors’ proposition to effectively be our in-house legal team was precisely what we needed as a start-up company. From Company registration to a Shareholders’ Agreement, Company Secretarial duties, advice on Board structure, commercial contracts from office leases to aircraft acquisition and, remarkably, Directors’ and Staff employment contracts, all under one roof! They are totally professional and easy to deal with and I believe that this is the future of legal support. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Selling the company that I founded 20 years ago was a stressful experience but Matthew, Niki and their team couldn’t have done more to ease the process. Their personal and no-nonsense approach demystified the legal process and got the job done with minimal fuss.
