What our clients say about Marcus
“It has been a pleasure working with you and team and thanks again for your support.”
“Marcus, thanks once again for all your help in this extraordinarily long-running saga, it really is hugely appreciated.”
“Thank you for the way you got the deal over the line. You were very professional, very acute and your client control was exemplary! It was you that persuaded me to make the necessary compromises and then negotiate those through with the other side. So, a big ‘thank-you’ to you personally and all the team supporting you.”
“Marcus Thorpe leads the team and has instilled an ethos of client care and efficiency. Marcus completed a transaction with 24 hours to spare on what was already a very tight timescale. First class.”
“Marcus Thorpe is one of the very few land and estate lawyers who actually visits the property and gets their boots dirty. I am convinced that this is one of the major contributory factors to his team’s efficiency. In addition it is perfectly normal to receive a telephone call from Marcus at 6:30 am or 9.30 pm, such is his dedication to exceeding expectations. This professionalism coupled with superb client bedside manner and an ability to cut through minutiae and provide pragmatic advice is what makes Marcus Thorpe a cut above the rest.‘”
