Shirley Jennison -

We have used Ancora Law to produce a lease agreement for a commercial premises we have rented out. We have dealt with Matthew Hudson throughout the process. He has been professional, responsive and really helped us navigate something entirely new for us.

We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and to use them again

Gareth Alexander -
I am extremely impressed with Ancora Law. We purchased a commercial property that involved lots of moving parts and last minute changes. Matthew's communication and advice was excellent at every stage of the process and he explained everything in plain English. I would highly recommend Ancora Law and will use his services again in the future.

We used Matthew at Ancora for a recent Community pub purchase, the service and knowledge was excellent. This was a particularly tricky purchase which involved some detailed contracts which Matthew handled expertly. calls and emails were always answered promptly.
Highly recommended.

James Green -

Cannot thank Matthew of Ancora Law enough. We remortgaged an investment a property we own to fund another property purchase and the mortgage had dragged on for so long. As we needed a personal guarantee to complete the remortgage we spoke to Matthew, and he explained everything in plain English in a way that me and my wife could not only understand but also explain to other people who we have now referred to Ancora. This was not only explained perfectly but completed extremely quickly which allowed us to complete and release the cash we needed to purchase our next property on time.

Matthew and Ancora make what can be a mind boggling industry so easy to understand and the regular updates meant we felt that we weren't forgotten about and we knew exactly what was going on throughout.

Mike Edwards -

We had fantastic help throughout from Matthew. We are a committee led group buying a community pub so not the easiest to deal with!! However, Matthew was clear and helpful throughout. Highly recommended.

Cairn Emmerson -
Matt turned a lease around in record time, and chased other solicitors to beat previous timescales for similar matters. I’d highly recommend Ancora Law for commercial property work. Fast, reasonable fees and top quality work.

I was given the details of Ancora Law firm as I was selling my tenancy. Matthew Hudson dealt with my case he couldn't do enough to help, I'm not very good with legal matters but everything was explained and I was well advised, Matthew really pushed and the business was sold within a matter of weeks, I am so grateful and would definitely recommend Ancora Law Firm.
