"In 40 years of working with solicitor in my profession, I can say that Olivia Chalmers is one of the best."

"The team is adept in acting for a diverse client base of sole traders, start-ups, regional SMEs and leading national brands, among them Anglia Home Furnishings Limited."

"Approachable, good local knowledge and provide an efficient service."

"A long-standing firm in the area, great local knowledge and strong partners."

Very efficient service. Very good response to emails - better than expected.

You were excellent in explaining the processes and procedures involved and were as keen to see the matter resolved as promptly as I was. Your professional knowledge and ethics were helpful, supportive and you even had the courage to tell me I needed to rethink my approach (which I did, and in retrospect that was exactly the right thing for you to do). It is clear that your superior approach delivers beneficial results and I will not hesitate to recommend you to colleagues, friends and family.

Very helpful and approachable, we will continue to use for commercial property work.

Excellent and knowledgeable service, quick and efficient. Would definitely recommend.

A very professional service. Clear communication, prompt responses to questions. Very satisfied with all aspects.

I was satisfied with all the help and information you advised me and in the near future I will call on your services again.

Scalesped was a 3rd party in a leasehold transaction and at all times Hunt & Coombs kept us informed and updated.

Very efficient throughout.

The service received throughout the purchasing of Yaxley Police Station was very professional and I would not hesitate to use the services of Hunt & Coombs again and also recommend their services to others.

The document that I requested was comprehensive and perfect for its purpose. My contracting party accepted it without any meaningful changes.

Very professional and efficient service.

I am very happy with the service I have received from Olivia and Hunt & Coombs in general.

Excellent service. My thanks to Olivia.

Thank you for your excellent service. We are particularly appreciative of James Steward who is always friendly and extremely knowledgeable.

"I have nothing but good, positive feedback in relation to the service that we received. We had the pleasure of dealing with Olivia Chalmers. Her work ethic, professional attitude and all round loveliness made our stressful business sale that little bit less stressful. I cannot fault our dealings with Olivia. We have used Hunt and Coombs for several issues over the years and as long as you are there we will continue to use your services. Continued success for all at Hunt & Coombs."

I have been using Hunt & Coombs for 15 years now and have always found them helpful, professional and reliable. It gives me peace of mind.

I have developed a good rapport with James Steward. This is our 9th buy together. Before this I was happy with Peter Izod.

...they were local and easy to get to, car park outside.

We are local to your Oundle office and have been always happy with your services, for the last 40 years or so!

James is first class. A great asset.

James was extremely professional and capable. We were very pleased with the service we received.

The service was rapid and professional.
