Michael Crook was recommended to us by our Accountant and has advised and acted for us on the process of selling our two companies. We could not be more impressed and grateful for the work that he has done. He was extremely thorough and scrutinised every detail of all the documents and patiently spent time explaining everything to us and negotiated the areas of concern on our behalf. At all times he made us feel as though getting everything was right was as important to him as it was to us. He dedicated all the time needed towards the end of the negotiations and conclusion of the deal. Working very long days when needed.
I first met Michael during our MBO in 2006 and have continued to use his expertise since. His absolute professionalism and clarity of vision throughout what seemed to be a vast legal minefield was exceptional. He is a man of great calm and utmost integrity and reliability; I would not hesitate to endorse him both for his ability and proficiency.
I just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the service provided by Crooks Commercial Solicitors in dealing with the sale of my photography business, and in particular, Michael Crook. Your service from start to finish has been exemplary and on a professional, knowledgeable, yet friendly and personal level that far exceeds all other legal firms I have dealt with in the past. Nothing ever seems to be too much trouble to you and I am made to feel unique, never feeling that I am just one of many clients that you and your office have to deal with each day.
Michael dealt with the sale of our business in 2008, which was then part of a national photography brand. His expert advice and continuous guidance throughout the process allowed us to overcome many complicated obstacles and enabled us to achieve a record sale for our industry sector. Michael offers a truly personal and dedicated service and is determined to get the job done, on plan and on time! I would not hesitate to recommend Michael to anyone.
The service and advice I have recieved from Crooks Commercial Solicitors has been seamless and efficient. My main contact, Michael, was always available and responded to calls and emails in a timely manner. This was our first share-sale purchase and it was all explained very well and Michael held our hand at every step of the transaction. Crooks also dealt with the property side of the transaction and again everything went very smoothly. We had a number of issues that arose unexpectedly, which Michael did his utmost to help resolve and finally get the purchase completed. His technical expertise was of great assistance.
Michael was recommended to us to provide advice in connection with the merger of our solicitor practice. He worked very hard for us to achieve our short timescales, and did the basics well in returning our calls and emails promptly. He provided clear advice, showed great attention to detail, and was clearly expert in his field. We were very pleased with how Micahel dealt with our transaction from start to finish.
