It is said that 'wisdom is knowledge, rightly applied' and this neatly encompasses my experience of Debbie Knowles during the period she provided me, my colleagues and thus TDG with general legal advice, support and advocacy whilst working with EEF.
This support included concise telephone and face to face discussions and representing TDG at Employment Tribunals. Debbie proved adept at resolving difficult and challenging people and employment issues in the most suitable, speedy and cost effective way that the circumstances would allow. Debbie's advice and counsel was invariably pragmatic and business focussed - meaning that Debbie is commercially aware and not simply the conveyor of cold legal opinion or precedent. Debbie fully understands the challenges faced by business and therefore provided TDG with sound legal opinion but also worked with us to minimise risk, cost and identify face saving solutions that worked.

Re: Fast, Efficient service
I just wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the professional efficient service that you provided us here at The Jordans & Ryvita Company in Stockport. The support and advice you provided in the management of the complex restructuring programme gave us the much needed confidence in approaching this situation.
I am equally impressed by the efficiency in reviewing and updating the Policy and Procedures in order to take abreast of recent legislative changes and look forward to follow-up training session.

Right from the start, Debbie Knowles at Simplaw Ltd. impressed us with her friendly, efficient, and professional manner, an approach that not only inspired confidence, but generated the results we were looking for. We needed an effective solution to the problem on defending a claim for constructive dismissal. By utilising the skills of Debbie at Simplaw Ltd., we have been able to successfully defend the claim and as a result we were able to minimise our overall costs.
Because of her years of experience in this field The Karl Vella Group Ltd. would have no hesitation in using Simplaw’s services again, should the need arise, nor would we have any hesitation in recommending her services.
