“We have been working with Jay Bhayani for the last 2 years and thinking back, I honestly don’t know how we would have got through some of the employment challenges we have faced without her teams dedicated and knowledgeable support. They have always been on the other end of the phone and there has been no problem they haven’t been able to advise us on and help us work through. They have given us the confidence to tackle challenging situations and also given us the knowledge to best support to our employees to have a positive employment experience within our organisation. I can’t thank them enough!”
“Extremely helpful and understanding, first class service from the first telephone conversation. I would definitely recommend”.
“Ms Bhayani is an excellent solicitor – knowledgeable, friendly and accessible. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to anyone”.
