At EM Law we pride ourselves on doing a great job and making sure our clients are happy, but don’t take our word for it, check out some of the reviews we’ve received below:

Nick Stone Co-Founder of VIPR Digital Limited (trading as FIXR)
We have been working with EM Law since 2018 and they have helped us with a wide range of employment law, data protection and commercial law matters as well as the set up and support for our EMI option scheme. While they are very easy to work with, they absolutely know their stuff and are on point every time. They're a great team to have on board for any SME wanting to grow their business.
Alexis Granite Founder & CEO Joonbyrd Limited
Based off a recommendation, Joonbyrd approached EM Law in 2023 to help with our new products launch and to put in place some of the contracts and policies we needed for our business as well as an EMI Scheme. We have been very happy with the work that they have done for us and their responsiveness. Would recommend them to any SME needing business law support.
Dr Chang Liu, CEO & Chief Designer - Extend Robotics
We’ve been working with EM Law for about half a year. They’re really professional lawyers helping us to draft our software licence contracts and terms and conditions for our Software-as-a-Service product. Our Software-as-a-Service model is a brand new concept, even in the robotics industry where we have to consider a lot of hardware and software and the data behind the users. So it’s a challenge for the company to work this out, and EM Law is helping us a lot on this front. See our video with Extend Robotics here!
Tim Johnson Founder and CEO TJB Super Yachts Limited
We have been working with EM Law since 2018 and they have been hugely supportive as TJB has grown its team and operations both in the UK and overseas. They have helped us with a wide range of commercial contracts, employment law and dispute resolution matters. We got on very well with their team and key contacts Imogen Finnegan and Neil Williamson who are friendly, responsive and come up with practical solutions to help us achieve our aims - we use them as a sounding board for any new venture that we're pursuing. I highly recommend them.
Dave Dadds CEO DRD Communications Ltd
We have worked with Neil and his colleagues on a number of different company issues including business acquisitions, client contract and employment matters. Neil and his team have always provided very professional help and have been very efficient in meeting our needs. We would highly recommend Neil and his team.
Andrew Pritchard CEO Arum Systems Limited
Arum is the UK’s leading independent provider of advisory and professional services within debt and revenue collections across the public and private sectors. Since 2020 and aligned to our client offerings becoming more complicated, EM Law has been supporting us with our client contracts and other commercial advice around our consulting and software services supply. We are extremely happy with the support that EM Law have provided us with. They are very responsive, practical, and extremely commercially savvy. Put simply, they help us get the results that we want. All our team enjoy working with them.
Rupert Wood CEO Wasteland Ski Ltd
We have been working with Neil for many years now, more recently on a retained basis because he has become someone we trust and who understands our business requirements. Neil has proven himself to be incredibly adaptable and has always been our go-to person for the more complex commercial agreements we have had to put in place. Neil is relaxed, engaging but also very professional and can lend his breadth of experience to provide considered opinion to many different areas of law. But it’s his detailed analysis and instinctive assessment of a commercial scenario and his ability to get to grips with the business requirement, the causes and effects that make him an invaluable sounding board for us.
Dr Susan Greene, Director, OTB Engineering Limited
OTB Engineering have been working with EM Law, and particularly Neil, for many years across a wide range of legal services. Neil is highly responsive, professional and collaborative . As an agile SME we value EM Law’s practical approach alongside their breadth of services making them highly ideal for any SME looking to appoint a single trusted source for expert advice and support.
Elbereth Donovan, former Chief of Operations Edtech Hub
EM Law have been instrumental in putting in place a wide range of commercial agreements with EdTech Hub’s international partners and suppliers. They also advised us on data protection compliance for complex research projects in some very challenging parts of the world. They very much understood what we needed to achieve and how to go about that and they made things happen – I can’t recommend them highly enough.
Simon Purchase, Managing Director, Forty Eight Point One Limited
EM Law have been instrumental in helping us scale up with a number of larger corporate clients where more robust and secure contracts were needed. They have always given due consideration to our specific needs as a business and worked with us to understand the agency market place that we trade in to deliver agreements that allow us to be confident in our terms with our clients moving forward.
Gavin English MD IMC Worldwide Ltd
Neil and his team have undertaken several items of legal work covering contracts, agreements and share option schemes for IMC Worldwide over the past few years and have been responsive to our needs, professional, efficient and easy to work with every time. We recommend EM Law if you are looking for good value, friendly legal advice.
George Mukkath Managing Director Cardno Emerging Markets (UK) Ltd
Cardno has worked closely with EM Law since 2013. The advice and support provided to our business by EM Law has been of a high quality, relevant to our requirements and more importantly helped us to make the appropriate decisions that have contributed to the success of our business. I would strongly recommend EM Law as a trusted partner for providing expert advice and support on a wide range of legal and compliance matters.
Edyta Ozbek MD NEU Professionals Limited
NEU Professionals is a leading recruitment services supplier to the NHS. We have been working with EM Law since 2019 on various corporate and commercial contract matters. They have also advised us on data protection compliance and put in place all our policies. We are delighted with the support that we have received from EM Law – they are responsive, commercial and we trust them to put our best interests at heart. They are also a pleasure to work with.
Margarita Shalaev
I recently encountered a difficult situation with some consultants, and I'm incredibly grateful for the help I received from EM Law. Neil Williamson and his team, particularly Associate Solicitor Colin Lambertus, were fantastic throughout the process. They handled everything with professionalism and discretion, and I was impressed by their expertise and dedication. Thanks to their efforts, the issue was resolved quickly and favourably. I highly recommend EM Law to anyone needing legal assistance!
Dan Kreiger
I had a fantastic experience with EM Law, specifically Suzy Giele. The firm immediately responded to my request to review a stock options agreement. Ms. Giele carefully examined it and advised me accordingly. The lawyers at this firm have a great deal of experience reviewing employee stock option agreements. They equipped me with important information that I would not have been able to identify on my own. After the advisement, I was able to make well-informed decisions. I cannot recommend them highly enough!
Alberto Gabbai, CEO Cezanne HR Limited
I wish to thank you for your dedication in assisting me in this challenging and demanding deal. I believe that in the end we got to a well-balanced conclusion. I appreciated your pragmatic and professional approach throughout and I am happy to have chosen EM Law.
Marc Cross Director Klinical LTD
We're a London-based design agency and recently instructed EM Law to create our client contracts. Having had fairly cold/ impersonal experiences with law firms in the past, we went into this process half expecting the same. We were wrong! Neil and the team were extremely friendly, informative and accessible throughout. Always happy to answer our numerous questions and revisions to the contract (when required) were made super-swiftly. We're now in possession of a water-tight contract that gives us the protection we need, and hopefully a long-term legal partner. Thank you team!
Williams Wells, Director - Founders Media LTD
Brilliant service from Imogen and Neil at EM Law. Great work, excellent communication, and a trustworthy partner.
Sean Lee Rice, Director - Schej Limited
It was very easy dealing with Neil and his colleagues at EM Law. They created a B2B SaaS sales contract for my startup. They explained concepts in a way that I was able to easily understand and then comprehensively and patiently answered my questions. I look forward to doing business with them in the future.
Jesse Roberts, Director - Packing Europe Limited
Cost-effective, efficient and friendly legal advice, helped us to understand & negotiate the key aspects of a SaaS agreement, I would use EM Law again
Claire Goodwin Director CG Consultancy
James has been more than generous - he has really been amazing at guiding me through this process.
I just wanted to say thank you for your help throughout this purchase. James and the firm were immensely professional and made the process painless.
Nataliya Kozachenko MD Vasant Connect Limited
I want to thank wholeheartedly EM Law for all their assistance and guidance….I feel that I should particularly highlight their professionalism, integrity and creativity….these people think out of the box and go the extra mile to find the best solution for a client.
Ismet Yucetas CEO Middle East Air Drilling Services
Neil is able to address complex issues, give us advice that we can follow and come up with creative solutions. He adapts quickly to new challenges. He is a great person to have on our team.
Lena Rosenior CEO De Graft Management Ltd
Neil helped us structure, negotiate and put in place our first client software-as-a-service contracts. His technical and commercial advice was invaluable – he understands exactly where we are coming from. He is very responsive, a pleasure to deal with and I look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with him!
Ayshen Ali founder Attainers Limited
I want to thank Neil at EM Law for his support and guidance whilst I have been setting up my own business. He has talked me through the step by step stages and legalities involved so that I can make informed decisions about my business approach. He is very professional, supportive and positive with a very approachable manner. I would definitely recommend EM Law!
SD, Project Manager
I found Imogen quickly understood my situation and made an effort to speak plainly about the facts as well as advising me about the different options available to me. She was thoughtful, empathetic and helpful, and made the redundancy process far easier than it might have otherwise been. Her help was invaluable and I would have no hesitation in recommending her.
Kate York, Photographer
Neil was brilliant, patient and thorough guiding me through queries setting up my business to be compliant. His common sense, practical approach cleared up the grey areas and we are now able to proceed confidently with his advice.
Belle Goggins
Very happy! They are very efficient and do great work. Really enjoy working with EM Law.
Emerald Enkindle
Where do I start. Neil has been so professional and really caring. I had no idea about anything and he taught me the ropes and helped me deal with the issue. He knew exactly what was needed and was always there whenever I needed help or was really unsure. If you are a first timer in opening your business, Neil is the one to go to. He is truly an angel that has helped me. I wish him the best for the future and his business.
JK, Shareholder
Neil Williamson, I cannot thank enough for his work and legal advice, which had brought the great result. I would recommend EM Law for those who need any advice for the commercial, corporate legal issues as well as individual matters within any type of business.
Marketing Consultant
My experience with Neil has been fantastic. He is very honest, knowledgeable and truly wants to help his clients. He is always happy to get on a call to answer any questions and explain everything. I am very happy I decided to work with him. I highly recommend him!
G Dyson
Very professional and caring, a great combination. Will use again.
John Taylor Director Glo-bell London Ltd
Thank you for all your help with the matters regarding my company, you have been thorough in all aspects to the finer detail. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else needing professional business guidance. If any issues arise where we need legal advice in the future you’ll be my first line of support.
KE, Development Manager
I was recommended Imogen as an employment lawyer and am pleased I went with her. She quickly understands situations and is extremely thorough in the process. She has a very personable approach and is succinct in her communication. I would highly recommend her.
Maren Koros CEO and Founder of Dawasoko App and Afyacore
Starting a new venture, within a new country, and how to go about maneuvering the legal and contracts landscape was where I found myself needing a lawyer. I needed someone who could understand the complexities and culture of the venture. I was referred to EM Law and I am grateful that I met Neil. He listened to me and took time to understand what the business was and what it was that I wanted. He explained to me the legal documents in a simple language and made sure I understood what was needed for the legal side of things. He was prompt on replies and clarification of matters. I highly recommend him and his team.
Alex Mosley, Director Perrygate Property Limited
Neil and Lauren were both very helpful in drafting contracts I needed for my firm. They both took the time to understand the business and asked the right questions. Very efficient and friendly service and I was kept updated on progress at all times. Would definitely use again.
Craig Strong (Chief Technology Officer)
Finding the best professional legal support can make a material difference to your life or business. Having success with EM Law, I have found a strong partner to work with. A confident and professional service every step of the way and a well worth the investment. I highly recommend their services and team!
MB, Senior Sponsorship Manager
I have had four children and every time I’ve returned to work it has thrown up new challenges, obstacles and complications. Imogen has always given me sound, objective and carefully considered legal advice as well valuable, confidence-boosting life coaching. I would recommend her counsel to anyone in a heartbeat.
Neil Dillon Director Data Conscious
I approached EM Law to help produce a standard form agreement for our consultants to sign up to. Their work was really high quality. I got all the contractors signed up in a short space of time, and the contracts they drew up have given me peace of mind that I have something to fall back on in case any delivery issues arise. Also really appreciated the speed of their work and their responsiveness to the specifics of my business.
Nick Small Director Nick Small Consulting
Neil and I worked alongside each other for several years securing software business overseas for Crown Agents. He was a huge asset. He made things happen quickly in some very challenging environments – tying up contracts, helping with tenders and he was always very commercial. But it wasn’t just his technical ability I valued – he was a great person to travel with.
Sarah Francis former owner and director of Sifex
I cannot speak too highly of EM Law and Neil Williamson in particular. He was 100% responsive, reliable, reassuring and remarkably patient in the handling of my case and under his watchful eye matters were successfully concluded. I am extremely grateful and have no hesitation in recommending him as an expert in his field. I have, in the past, also received guidance from Imogen Finnegan on employment law with the same level of professionalism and the same successful result.
Prawarisa Wasutrasawat founder Original Me Limited
I approached Neil to support me with new business contracts and service agreements. Neil dealt with my case professionally and acted with the utmost integrity. It was evident he put in extra time to research my business and industry to understand the unique challenges. His attention to detail was vital in identifying legal risks and he was swift to mitigate them. I would definitely recommend him.
LC, Director at a Management Consultancy
Imogen is a fantastic employment lawyer. Clear, supportive and very skilled in her area. Imogen is not like other lawyers. She explains the law and its potential outcomes in a way that is approachable, and from which you can make decisions. Imogen also advises on the decision making process, playing out the situations that might arise and how one might overcome these. Most importantly, Imogen is pragmatic to a fault. Unlike other lawyers and law firms, she understands that employment law can be a sensitive topic and she translates the law into activities and actions that are best for any one individual and their situation. She is available, reassuring and extremely mature and well versed in her handling of cases. I cannot recommend Imogen highly enough.
Rob Crowley MD Anexsys Ltd
EM Law have supported Anexsys with a number of legal issues, ranging from drafting complex IT contracts to developing conflict policies and advising on a range of complex multi-jurisdiction legal issues. As a reactive technology business supporting large law firms we need a responsive law firm and lawyer who can quickly develop a knowledge of our business requirements, understand and present the risks, and develop a suitable resolution. Neil has taken the time to understand the eclectic nature of our business and our end clients and is able to advise on sensible and pragmatic solutions, enabling me to make effective decisions confident that risk has been minimised. I would strongly recommend EM Law to anyone looking for a law firm that takes the time to understand ongoing risks and issues and provide elegant solutions.
VR, Nutritional Chef and Culinary Manager
What can I say about Imogen? She was the shining star in what was a very difficult time for me. From the moment I got in touch with her (during a bank holiday weekend) right through to closure (late on a Friday night) she made herself entirely available to speak to me, and offer sound words of legal advice (and sometimes counselling too!) at all times of day. Her reliability and dependability is quite standout. What’s more, the professional nature of her advice is outstanding. She takes the time to understand the subtle nuances of what is going on, determine the best strategy (offering you options depending on your personal sentiments) and then helps you execute this flawlessly whilst providing a solid understanding of the basic legalities behind what is going on. I am delighted with the agreement reached with Imogen’s excellent help and would not hesitate in recommending her to anyone and everyone.
SM, Recruitment Manager
Learning that you are to be made redundant whilst on maternity leave is a horrible prospect. Then add to that having to find a lawyer to help navigate the process and ensure that you are being treated fairly makes it all even more intimidating. So I felt incredibly fortunate to have come across Imogen. She was fantastic at helping at every juncture – I felt totally confident in her ability to help me negotiate the best deal and so much more at ease knowing she was there to advise. She is hugely knowledgeable and understanding, and I couldn’t have got through it without her. I hope that I’ll never be in a similar situation again but know that I would always contact Imogen if I were. I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation.”SM, Recruitment Manager
Claire Goodwin Director CG Consultancy
I began working with Neil on my client contracts and service agreements when I started my business over two years ago. His support and attention to detail has been invaluable. With a kind and highly professional approach Neil is always prompt to respond guiding me through questions step by step, ensuring I understand clearly and helping make the right decisions. Neil has been a huge support as my business has grown – I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.
Nigel Mear Director and Founder Solidair
Working with Neil Williamson and EM Law has been outstanding! Neil took time to understand the nuances of our business and offered creative, practical solutions to our specific challenges. The level of professionalism, integrity, and sheer care and attention to detail was second to none – clearly going the extra mile to develop the best solution for our business. The collaborative approach was excellent and Neil was extremely patient, ensuring I understood everything, navigating any complexities that arose, and always offering sound advice to determine the best approach. It was a pleasure to work with Neil and I would strongly recommend Neil and EM Law as a trusted partner.
Dominic Zijlstra Director and Co-Founder Easy Castle
Neil has been very responsive and professional when we needed help with a SaaS contract. He had a good understanding both of the business and the technical side so that his legal advice was spot on.
Vladimir Gluhovskiy
EM Law is a company of value. It’s a place where you are not asked for anything in advance before they see whether they can really help you. I’ve got all the help I needed and look forward to working with these people again. In case you are looking for expert solicitors, EM Law is the right company for you.
Grant Lambert MD Honor Search (Digital Recruitment)
Neil and Helen provided us with an employment contract and terms and conditions of business. We found Neil and Helen to be extremely informative and helpful throughout the process. They managed to provide us with the contracts within a quick time frame and to a very high standard, with everything we asked for. They also came back promptly with answering any further questions or queries. Would highly recommend.
Richard Davies Director F2iT Limited (t/a Zedonk)
We approached Neil at EM Law to deal with the GDPR legislation and new staff handbook and employment contracts for our employees. Neil, who is professional, personable and knowledgeable, dealt with all the issues that arose and we would not hesitate to recommend. Great law firm!
COO of a Strategic Communications Agency
Neil at EM Law advised us with regards to GDPR. He was thoughtful and thorough, providing actionable advice that was relevant to our specific circumstances. The materials and training that he and his team left behind have ensured that the entire team is better educated as to the challenges and opportunities provided by GDPR.
I just wanted to thank Imogen Finnegan for providing guidance on the overall process and facilitating such a smooth exit from my former company. I’m really happy with the outcome of the final termination agreement and should I or someone I know ever be in this situation in the future, I’ll be sure to reach out to her again.
Ivan Kovachev Director and Co-Founder Capitalixe
Neil took the time to understand our company’s needs and delivered the work quickly and efficiently. Contract law can be very complex and confusing but Neil made the process a whole lot easier. Will definitely be using the services of EM Law again.
Ian I
Conducting business with EM Law is a breath of fresh air. Helen is bubbly, friendly, a very good listener and quickly got to work on my case.
Sean Lee Rice Director and Founder Schej
It was very easy dealing with Neil and his colleagues at EM Law. They created a B2B SaaS sales contract for my startup. They explained concepts in a way that I was able to easily understand and then comprehensively and patiently answered my questions. I look forward to doing business with them in the future.
Many thanks for all of your excellent advice and assistance with this matter Imogen. I am grateful and now know who to recommend if anyone asks for similar.
I was referred to EM Law by a friend and Helen Monson was assigned to my case. The immediate support in understanding the details of my case and the clear direction was excellent. There was a sense of urgency and accuracy in all communications that really helped in clarifying the various options open to me. The result was more than positive and I would not hesitate in recommending EM Law in the future.
Having never used a solicitor around work-related matters before, I reached out to several firms. EM Law was very quick to come back to me in a friendly yet professional manner. They immediately put me at ease, reviewed my case before even quoting a price for the work and got everything sorted within a couple of days. A great and painless experience! Thank you to Suzy and Neil for getting this all done so easily and in a way that even I could understand.
