Private client review:

I have known Saleem Sheikh of GSC Solicitors for many years and would certainly recommend both him and his firm. He has acted for me personally and for my group, the Soul Foods Group. Some of these transactions have been complex and have always been completed on time and very professionally.

I have known and worked with Saleem and GSC for over 15 years and would have no hesitation in recommending GSC to any client. In my experience Saleem is a pleasure to work with, he is accessible be it by phone or in person, he is extremely knowledgeable and he supported by an excellent team who appear to be very loyal to the firm and Saleem.

I have known Saleem for over five years when he helped my company in respect of restructuring, trust advice, family probate and Wills & Lasting Powers of Attorney. Over the years I have been very happy and satisfied with Saleem’s services and with the depth of his knowledge and client understanding in different types of legal fields. His diligence and efficiency as well as attention and care that we felt from day one, were second to none. I would highly recommend Saleem and his team to any business or family.

I have known Mr Saleem Sheikh since 1985 when I first met him in London. Over the last thirty-two years, I've been very happy and satisfied with his services and with the calibre of his knowledge and expertise that he possesses in various fields. Over the years, Saleem has represented me and my companies in commercial and residential real estate transactions both acquisitions and disposals. He has also represented us on various occasions with raising finance and dealing with financial institutions. He has also assisted us in resolving commercial disputes and disagreements and has achieved satisfactory resolutions in privately held companies. Saleem has also assisted me and my family in setting up offshore trust and offshore companies, estate planning and in a matter of family succession plans.
