“Having worked with Atiyya on several projects over the past four years I have always found her to be extremely thorough and responsive in her approach to our legal requirements. Atiyya is very good at spotting sensitive details and squeezing the maximum benefit for the client through the legal process. On more than one occasion Atiyya has also displayed a high level of perseverance to help us push a job through when advisors from other parties are dragging out proceedings. Communication is timely and effective and I always feel I have an understanding of the process and outstanding issues. As Atiyya is also very approachable it’s easy for me to obtain a layman’s explanation on more complex matters. Atiyya is very aware of the commerciality in decision making and when we should / shouldn’t take a view on an issue. This helps me feel confident that I am always getting the best possible advice, and as a result I would happily recommend Atiyya and Freeths to other businesses seeking the highest level of confidence in their legal matters.”(Piers Barnes, Finance Director, Helly Hansen)
