Testimonials for Deborah
The Legal 500 2021 – Deborah Geering - October 2020
My lawyer Deborah Geering was outstanding. To grasp the detail of a very specific commercial situation so rapidly and effectively and to deliver a solution to the dispute against very tight time deadlines was an exceptional performance in my view.
The Legal 500 2021 – Deborah Geering client feedback - November 2020
Deborah Geering recognised that despite the difficulties, I had a case that whilst it was complicated could reach the outcome I wanted. She was first class, determined and knew my case backwards which ultimately made the difference when we reached mediation as the other side were not nearly as thorough as Deborah had been. I had never had to resort to using the law to resolve an issue but in Furley Page and in particular Deborah Geering, I felt confident and reassured at every step of the way. Despite the threats from the other side Deborah always said that we would win in the end and the bullying tactics of the other side were not to be feared. Deborah is a real credit to both her firm and the law in general.

Client of Deborah Geering – Mr J Pace
We had a mediation case on Friday in London in which Deborah Geering represented us. I just wanted to say how much we appreciated her support and the speed at which she got to grips with things. On top of getting the brief well understood, she was very personable and positive. She was exactly what was needed to break the deadlock.
