Mark Briegal was invaluable in steering us through the transition from a partnership to a limited liability partnership.

Mark helped us with both in-depth points of law queries as well as providing a structured project plan that addressed the logistics of the changeover in depth.
He responded quickly to all our many questions  and was helpful in reminding us of priorities and the importance of comprehensive communication with clients and suppliers  as the project was completed

“I thoroughly recommend Mark who assisted us with our financial restructure and conversion to LLP with ABS status as part of our succession planning strategy. His unique blend of legal and wider commercial knowledge meant that we were able to navigate this complex transition knowing that we were in safe hands. Mark is a pleasure to work with and responds quickly! Highly recommended


Partner, Regional Law Firm

“I was introduced to Paul through a colleague of mine who had seen him deliver a talk at a Law Society event and had been impressed. From the first contact, meeting and scoping requirements, to delivery and the ongoing hand holding and explanation of the work agreed, Paul was/continues to be first rate. Paul is highly knowledgeable, user friendly and absolutely recommended.

Alexandra B

Head of Employment City Law Firm, on instructing Paul as Counsel

“Mark was very professional, as well as reassuring and helpful in all his dealings with us when we approached him for advice in relation to the sale of our legal practice.”



Paul has the unusual distinction of being at the absolute top of his game on compliance and regulatory work whilst at the same time providing pragmatic and sensible advice on general commercial matters

Katherine R

Owner, Solicitors

I was looking for a specialist partnership lawyer on the internet and came across Mark’s details. I immediately knew he was the right candidate for the job. Sure enough, he has proved to be invaluable. He was quick to grasp the key issues and offer practical advice. Whilst his legal knowledge speaks for itself, his wider education and an extended stint outside law has equipped him with a world view that is beyond the grasp of many lawyers. He responds to emails/phone calls by return which is invaluable when you find yourself in trying circumstances that require prompt answers.

I cannot recommend Mark highly enough.

Bill S

Tax Partner, Chartered Accountants, London

“Mark was recommended to me by my firm’s accountants and guided me through the process of converting from an old style Partnership to a Limited Company. I’d previously seen Mark lecture on LLPs so I knew he was an expert in the field. What was refreshing though was Mark’s easy manner and practical advice. He was able to help me achieve the mind shift from thinking like a Partner to thinking like a Director! The whole process was smooth and efficient and Mark answered my endless questions with patience and humour. I would highly recommend his services.”

MD Law Firm

Paul and Mark offered effective and clear advice through the process of selling my business. With concise reviews of information and flagging of issues, their input helped greatly to ease the process through a stressful time.”

Mark J, Landscape Architect.

“We thank Mark for all that he has done for our firm.  From the outset he quickly got to grips with the issues at hand. He is clearly an intelligent lawyer, but we’re also really impressed with his dedication and customer service.  There is little doubt that Mark went above and beyond in relation to the work we asked him to undertake. 

A true gentleman and a credit to his profession.  Highly recommended in every respect and money well spent.”


Law Firm Owner

“Mark Briegal is extremely knowledgeable and has exceptional interpersonal skills, both with clients and opponents alike. He is very commercial and gets the job done.

Legal 500

“Legal expertise and commercial practicality. It is rare to come across this in equal measure. Paul managed when I engaged him for advice on an innovative legal solution, though. Paul ‘gets’ the way the legal world is evolving and provides pragmatic, sensible advice which reflects that – not just the letter of the law. I was really grateful for Paul’s expertise and knowledge. In particular, the fact that he takes a real interest in the client and wants to help beyond the legal advice.

Will T

Managing Director, Legal Outsourcing Company

“I was in a toxic GP partnership and Mark negotiated my exit on great terms, whist Paul rebuffed a malicious claim to the GMC by my partners when I pointed out their fraud. Not only were Mark and Paul professional and supportive but importantly for my family and I they listened and understood my personal concerns during a very stressful time in my life. Mark and Paul provide a unique combination of incredible expertise and personal care that I know I couldn’t have found elsewhere. I can’t thank them enough.

Dr T M

Owner, General Practitioner

“Mark and Paul helped me with an exit from a previous LLP. Their advice was excellent and I have recommended them numerous times since to other professionals. Very approachable and exceptional in their areas.”


Law Firm Partner

“Mark was recommended to me by a good contact of mine and ever since my first telephone call with him, he has been fantastic! Mark offers practical advice in a clear and logical way – most importantly he is nice with it and has a great sense of humour too. It is refreshing to work with a lawyer who is able to advise in a straightforward and realistic way, giving you the opportunity to make an informed decision. As one of our senior partners said, “In my 40 years of practice, Mark is the best lawyer I have dealt with in these matters,” and I could not agree more. I would highly recommend Mark and I’m sure you will not be disappointed if you decide to use his services.”

Susan G
