    What others say about us

    “Unlike other law firms we previously used, Collyer Bristow has shown nimbleness and out of the box thinking we had not previously experienced. The firm’s commitment has pro-actively been on the front foot, and their counsel clear with legal correspondence that is elegant, cost effective and coherent; on the whole we are very impressed by the firms offering!”

    “We are extremely impressed and grateful to Richard Viegas for his total 24/7 commitment to our claim; we changed law firms midway [but] the team quickly got into the minutiae of matters, took control of, drove complex litigation and provided us tremendous comfort they fully understood the dynamics of our claim”

    “It is clear to us Richard Viegas has created a litigation practice that is a cut above the rest in London”
