Chambers UK 2024 - Patrick Glencross client feedback

I can’t think of any way the service I received could be improved. It was excellent and faultless.

Client of Eleanor Rogers - Mrs S

I had a number of employment questions that I needed answers to. I went to Furley Page as I had worked with them before on other matters. The whole experience was first class. I worked with Patrick Glencross whose professionalism and efficiency were nothing short of excellent. I’m extremely pleased with the outcome. I have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending Furley Page.

Caremark Thanet, Dover and Canterbury

I never expected to find myself in the employment predicament I was placed. I was quite literally broken at the start of my journey with Eleanor. She gradually put me back together to fight the injustice I faced. Nothing was ever too much trouble and her dedication to my cause involved working out of hours and being there for moral support as well as legal support. She showed me such empathy and kindness. Her professionalism is second to none. She navigated an incredibly challenging, hostile situation and achieved a very, very welcome outcome for me. I genuinely could not have got to this end without her. To thank her does not seem enough. Her incredible legal skills, along with her iron nerve and exceptional compassion have given me the strength to rebuild my life.

The Legal 500 2023 - Andrew Masters

I found Andrew Masters to be really human and personable in his approach. He didn’t bulldoze me with legal knowledge (something I have experienced in the past) but instead took the time to listen to me properly but also explained things in the simplest and most easily understood way so I could relay information to our directors easily. Andrew was pragmatic, commercially astute and collaborative in his approach – both with me and his junior team members. It felt like we reached a collective agreement which considered what was right for the the business taking into account my experience as well as the legal risks.’
