What People Say about Emily...
“Emily is a committed professional who gets things done. I worked with her on the sale of a company where the other side were less than helpful and whose delays and unreasonable requests required diligence and patience in equal measure. Emily displayed both of these qualities and got the deal over the line. She also responded to my requests without delay and took a lot of the stress of the deal away from me. I am very happy to recommend Emily.” - Corporate Client
“I worked with Emily Steed and the experience has been extremely positive. We were negotiating a services agreement with a client I have been working with for 20 years. Emily took time to get to know my business and go through the document with me in detail using her experience to suggest amendments which gave my business more protection. Emily didn’t bombard me with legal jargon but explained things to me clearly and patiently whilst listening to what I wanted out of the negotiations. Negotiating is not a strength of mine but that was fine as Emily was a great advocate and fought my corner to achieve what I wanted. Emily is friendly, dedicated, offered efficient practical advice throughout and met short timescales. I cannot speak highly enough of the service I was provided.” - Commercial Client
“We are deeply indebted to James Towler, Emily Steed and Heather Roberts at McCormicks Solicitors, who advised us throughout what proved to be a complex transaction. Their deep knowledge of the legal intricacies of the football world was of enormous help to us during the extended negotiations, and they were a pleasure to deal with. Their advice was always clear, pragmatic and constructive, and enabled us all to focus without distraction on the key issues which needed to be resolved. We really appreciate the way they handled the transaction for us.” - Corporate Client
