Antonia Barker at Vardags was extremely helpful during my divorce, she is compassionate, understanding and issued insightful and timely advice consistently. She was the calming voice I needed at that time, but also tough on making sure that I got a fair deal when that needed to happen. Vardags aren’t cheap, but they are worth it, I’d recommend employing Antonia for family legal matters.
Average. Nothing special at all. When you choose a legal services provider you need to be certain of their experience being suited to your case. If similar cases have been handed, and handed successfully, there are merits for us to discuss the matter. If not - there are other firms with relevant experience and I would appreciate not to have my time wasted. I found it quite annoying that an email sent directly to Caroline Korah’s work email address appeared to be “missing”. I then spent half a day chasing an administrator on WhatsApp with a simple question of whether they had experience I needed. I had to answer a massive load of questions before she was able to produce that they “may have” such solicitors. There’s a difference between “may have” and “do”. Too bureaucratic and vague. Hence neutral review.
Emma Williams and Katherine Res Pritchard are an outstanding team. They handled my children matter not just with the utmost professionalism but also compassion. Their advice proved to be unerringly accurate. It also seemed sensible and proportionate at all times. I felt like I was in the best possible hands from the outset.
My team of Vicki and Nicola were so much more than just lawyers and helped me emotionally through an awful process. I was also really impressed with the responsiveness and support I received to ad hoc questions I had after the process completed - some years later! Thank you both. Very grateful.
I am so happy I got to make the call to Vardags first! Excellent service. Whole team of forensics that I would have been totally lost without. My personal lawyers / contacts, vikki and nikki could not have been better in any way, swiftly responsive, understanding, perfect advice, experienced and qualified top ladies. I really cannot thank you enough for a perfect outcome to a complicated and not easy case. Your care throughout was amazing.
I have been legally represented by Caroline Korah from Vardags since the start of my international relocation case with my daughter and all I can say is that Caroline is really AMAZING! She has been the best solicitor, extremely knowledgable, intelligent and giving me at all times the best advice and guidance. Before I found Caroline, I had been advised that my relocation case would not succeed, that the timing was not good, that my case was not very strong etc. I had also already gone through a round of very expensive and unproductive family proceedings, with legal representation that was really lacking. Finding Caroline was the luckiest thing that happened to me and since our first telephone conversation I was sure that I was in the best hands and that there was no need for me to look further - I had every confidence with Caroline that she would give me the best outcome that was possible for my relocation case (as she did). She is extremely knowledgable around all aspects of children law and international relocation cases and she can communicate all this knowledge in a very efficient and effective way. She is extremely intelligent, insightful and quick to understand things - she had understood 2 years of litigation and numerous court applications in just one telephone conversation! She was also very clear and structured in the way she explained the whole process to me from end to end and paid special attention in advising me to follow the most cost effective way. Her advice to me from the beginning has been really invaluable - She managed to understand everything around my case and her advice was always very well thought, reasonable, child centered and strategic. She is exceptionally good at preparing statements and at helping with preparation for Cafcass interviews, cross examination etc. There was not even one occasion where Caroline did not give me the best advice for my case and I had every confidence having Caroline to help me at all steps. She was also always available for me and very quick to respond, a quality which is very important when as a client you are under the huge stress of court proceedings. She is extremely professional - always well prepared and ready to meet all deadlines on time. What also impressed me was how well she knew all points of my case, at all stages, which again shows how professional she is. Caroline has great insight and understanding of all aspects of children law cases and there is no way that you can go wrong if you have Caroline represent you! As a person she is very friendly and easy to talk with and she has great sense of humour, which is of course a big bonus! She is very passionate with her cases and I have always felt that she really cared for my case to succeed! She really fought my corner and she made every possible effort to give me my desired outcome - which she did! What Caroline did for my daughter and me is really huge! She changed our lives 100% and I am sure that without her this would not have been possible. She gave my daughter and me the opportunity to go back to my home country where my daughter can grow up within an abundance of love and affection from a wide circle of family and friends. She is truly amazing and she really is a TOP solicitor! I cannot recommend Caroline highly enough and I have every confidence that she will give the best possible outcome for her clients, with the most time and cost effective way. A huge thank you Caroline from all my family and me for making this relocation succeed! I know that this outcome would not have been reached without you! Thank you Caroline and Vardags!
We were very pleased with the way that our solicitor at Vardags handled our case and would highly recommend them.
Vardags provided me with an exceptional service when going through the process of purchasing a property in London. I can highly recommend the services of Nicholas Tobin and James Bunker.
Outstanding firm and of highest level of professionalism. Katherine Res Pritchard and her team were superb over a number of months, providing great advice and ultimately achieving a successful outcome. I would highly recommend Vardags as best in class in what they do.
I was very pleased with the service Vardags provided. Communication was good and the legal team were very professional.
From the moment Vardags rescued us from a very worrying situation regarding our surrogacy parental order process, we have felt nothing but absolute support and reassurance, received thorough information, top level professionalism and a truly personal service. We can't thank Ayesha, and especially Katherine and Emma enough, for their ongoing support and generous time in helping us glide through this experience with a very positive outcome. Their job is to make the process easier, but they do that with bells on! Over and above. Thank you, thank you.
A responsive and helpful service; quick to understand and advise on the issues.
I can not thank Sophie Groves and Valeria enough for all the help and compassion they had during my divorce. They were prompt, thorough, hardworking and always kept me in the loop of what was happening. From the beginning they explained the steps in the divorce along with the pros and cons of each decision I made. They were so good I am now at a ripe old age doing a conversion for law, hoping to practice family and I regularly keep in mind how professional yet compassionate they were with me when working with pro bono clients.
A truly excellent company. For me as a foreigner, buying a property in London was a horror which I managed only thanks to this company. Special thanks to James Bunker. I recommend their services they are real professionals.
Although Vardags explained to me that they were unable to help me in this instance, the service I received from Client Relations Assistant Eve was excellent. I cannot praise her enough for her time, compassion and consideration and whoever she spoke with, with regards to my circumstances. Despite being unable to help me, she compiled the notes and made a confident referral with another solicitor firm that Vardags highly recommended as an alternative to me. Eve kindly forward the summary notes she collated when discussing the points of my circumstances and someone from the alternative Firm got in touch with me a couple of days later and I hope to continue with them on a consultation basis. Eve was extremely patient and kind and I have nothing but nice things and praises for her. Eve, if you see this - thank you once more and best to you always.
What a superb team. Second to none. Would personally like to thank Senior Associate Rory Lynch for all his help, clarity and advice. Best of the best! Thank you. Claire Bullivant
My experience with Vardags has been exceptional. They helped me through all the complicated bureaucracy and process involved in dissolving my Civil Partnership. My two main contacts - Nicola and Vicki were highly supportive, helpful and strategic in their advice and guidance. I would, without hesitation, recommend Vardags if you want a highly professional and compassionate legal team to get you to the outcome you desire.
