"My husband and I own a small game farming business, and two years ago we had a customer who owed is £6100.00.  We struggled for nearly two years to get the money from him and eventually got in touch with gunnercooke. We were represented by Monica Kapur.  Monica managed in just a few weeks to get our money for us as well as her charges.  I am truly grateful to Monica and gunnercooke for their help in this matter.  I would not hesitate to ask their help again if I should have any problems." Anne Ives

"In the face of significant pressure from a very determined and persistent third party, and having previously been unable to resolve matters using another law firm, I contacted gunnercooke LLP for advice.  I was initially contacted by Alyson Reilly, who took the time to understand the situation and to work through the issues in order to provide a robust response with support from Monica Kapur, a Partner at the firm.

Both Alyson and Monica were incredibly thorough in their approach, and after a series of strong communications, were able to draw matters to a successful conclusion on my part.  Their approach was fair, understanding and very reasonable with an exceptionally high level of service.  I'm so pleased I chose gunnercooke LLP to support me through this issue, and cannot rate Alyson Reilly and Monica Kapur highly enough."
