    • Kevin is masterful!  What we initially thought would take 6 - 12 months, went the distance over the course of 3 years. Kevin never gave up. Time and time again, he found creative & thoughtful solutions to prickly issues. That was crucial in getting to a good outcome.

    • I instructed Kevin Rogers of Wilson Browne Solicitors on a complex multi-party shareholder dispute. The dispute had been long-running, and had the potential to be extremely costly. Kevin suggested a range of funding options, and we picked a type of ‘no-win-part fee’ that really helped with cash flow, but kept a lid on exposure in the event that we were successful. After detailed correspondence, and skilful targeted arguments we had a mediation that led to a multi-million pound settlement, with instalments, vital financial controls and security. My family and I were able to remain in touch with Kevin as the instalments were paid, to get continued reassurance and support, and most recently I was able to email him to let him know that the last instalment had been paid – on time – and I thanked him again for his negotiation skills, and told him that I had been so happy to raise a glass with my family to put the case behind us. This was not about a windfall, it was about putting a painful chapter behind me and getting what I was entitled to for my family. Kevin and his team at Wilson Browne Solicitors have made a lasting difference to us. Fully recommended, national level expertise, available locally.
