“We have been working with Gepp & Sons’ Solicitors since 2004. Over the last 8 years we have been able to build up a wonderful working relationship with Alex Dean, the Partner in the Employment Law Department. We know that Gepps as a whole, and Mrs Dean in particular have provided us with timely and important legal advice which enables our company to work effectively within the employment law of the UK and has helped us strengthen our employee relations across our company.
We would have no hesitation in recommending Gepp & Sons to other businesses. The standard of professionalism and legal knowledge they have always provided to us is second to none and we recognised that they have made, in our 8 year relationship, every effort to help and assist us when they can.”
"Alex was always professional, thorough and caring in her dealings with me. I was kept fully informed at all times and Alex continually sought the best outcome for me. I will always be grateful and would always recommend her with no hesitation."
"I would wholeheartedly recommend the professional, warm, honest and reliable service I received from Alexandra Dean and her team at Gepp & Sons Solicitors to anyone who finds themselves in a situation where they are unaware of their legal rights as an employee as I was at the time of my visit to her office. Needless to say her expert knowledge and experience on employment law helped to find a very quick resolution to an issue at work that had caused me extreme stress and anxiety. I could not have been more grateful if only id gone to see her sooner."
