I have recently had cause to refer a couple of my clients to Derek Simmonds – The Dispute Resolution Lawyer for litigation advice and support.
The feedback and results that this has brought to my clients has been superb.
The efficiency and professionalism that Derek provides through his business is second to none and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to other businesses needing clear, cost effective and customer orientated support.
…Your preparation proved to be invaluable and I have no doubt contributed significantly to achieving such a swift agreement.MD
Derek has acted on our behalf since 2012 in connection with very complex proceedings involving the repossession of a farm and cattle. This led to High Court Proceedings challenging the validity of our agreements and indemnities which were successfully opposed. Difficult costs claims and a host of satellite issues had to be dealt with including Mediation. This also involved a long trial, high values and a colossal amount of paperwork. There have been many tricky problems to overcome.
Derek’s work has also extended to overseeing an array of different proceedings in Scotland working with our Scottish Lawyers.
The quality of the service and advice we have received can only be described as excellent!
Derek has gone the extra mile with us working for us at weekends, out of hours and even when he is holiday.
I like working with Derek because he took the time to understand our requirements and to understand the way we do business. He is also very intuitive and practical, an excellent advisor and supporterDerek Fradgley
Derek came by personal recommendation, which is always a good start, and I am in turn pleased to pass on this recommendation to anyone reading this, who is up against it, feeling stressed and pressurised, and needs good legal advice and representation.
In Derek Simmonds we have had a strong advocate in our corner, who cuts through obfuscation and gets straight to the point. He distilled issues and arguments with precision and crisp clear language: he tells it like it is, both to us and for us. He is sharp. He tells us up front what the costs will be and sticks to it. Above all, he gave us confidence which sustained us in tricky times.

I have used Derek since last August 2016 to provide me with business support . He has helped me with planning the re organisation of my business. This has involved complex negotiations and heads of terms with a joint venture partner which has concluded with a successful outcome.
I have found Derek to be very personable and approachable person who takes the time to understand what I need. I have particularly liked working with Derek because he demonstrates and communicates his knowledge and experience careful, methodically, and in layman’s terms.
I will be using him further to help me plan for the next stage of the development of my business .Managing Director
Derek has been extremely professional & supportive through such challenging times dealing with the estate of my late mother. He is very polite, compassionate & efficient. He has been open & honest about the services I do & do not need from him and my options going forward.
I am extremely grateful for the expert advice he has given me and the speed in which he responds to communication is outstanding. After just one meeting with Derek I felt reassured that I was in the right hands. Highly recommended – Thank you Derek!Connor Jones
