I used LegalVision in relation to the sale of my business. I found them to be honest, reliable, efficient and professional throughout the whole experience. They were always easily contactable and returned and responded to my calls and e-mails promptly. The final legal fees were also fair. If you are looking for a great solicitor in relation to the sale or purchase of a business, ask for James Douglas.
