I have used Gillian for various matters over the last few years and she is always my first point of contact for any legal query. Gillian keeps me fully up to date with any ongoing matters and I have always had the outcome I was looking for. Very professional and highly recommended.

Private client review:

Through what has been a turbulent year Gill was my voice of reason, showing compassion and professionalism. Gill achieved for me the best possible outcome in a very unfair situation. I wish her every success.

Institutional client review:

Gillian is a "go to" trusted advisor on all trust and estate related matters. She is extremely approachable whilst always maintaining the highest levels of professionalism and integrity. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others.

Private client review:

Gillian has assisted me with a number of legal matters over the last couple of years and I have always found her to be professional and extremely helpful. Even with legal matters that wouldn't normally fall under her legal remit (legal advice re: my wedding abroad), Gill has been there to assist in whatever way possible. Gillian is extremely diligent in her work and I am a firm believer of you get what you pay for, with Gillian Christian that is the highest quality of legal advice available.

22 Aug 2018

Private client review:

I have appointed Gillian to look after a number of our legal requirements in 2017 & 2018 as well as recommending her to a number of friends and clients. I have received a prompt, professional service with excellent results. I like her common sense approach which is refreshing and I've been left with a clear understanding as to the likely outcome of each case and her advice has proved very invaluable in my decision making process, which has saved me time and money and got us to a conclusion quickly. A rarity in the legal world and I will continue to use her for all our legal work moving forward.

A very commercially minded lawyer who is reactive and approachable all times. Fees very reasonable for the level of service given

21 Aug 2018

Private client review:

Gillian gives sound practical advice and is very easy to work with because she listens to what her client wants and advises accordingly. I have always found her quick to respond because she makes herself easily available to her clients. Gillian is a very capable litigator and recently assisted us in getting a positive result in a multi-party matter.

21 Aug 2018

Institutional client review:

I first met Gill through a colleague who works very closely with her. Gill is always professional and you can see that through the advice that she gives. Gill is a great communicator and is always ready to help you with any queries.

21 Aug 2018

Gill always provides clear and concise advice. She is commercial in her approach and always makes time for her clients.

Peer review:

Gill always provides sound, commercial advice in a professional manner but with a personal touch. Gill is a pleasure to deal with and really is breaking down some of the stereotypes associated with the old school stuffy lawyer. As a business we engage Gill on a regular basis across a variety of matters and issues and I cannot speak highly enough of her or the advice and support she provides.

Anthony Page    Knox House Trust Limited

Very helpful in resolving a sensitive trust issue with complex beneficiary relationships and unusual matters in the underlying corporates. Brought to a conclusion to the satisfaction of all parties.

Institutional client review:

Gill has provided an excellent service to our firm for the past two and half years and this award would be a justified recognition of her contribution to assisting our clients.

Gill understands the importance of and never fails to deliver on the highest level of excellence when it comes to providing a service.
