Other Information

Charlotte is recommended and listed as a 'Next Generation Lawyer' by Legal 500 [UK 2021]. In this edition clients say ‘I have worked with Charlotte Wormstone on many disputes. Her advice is practical and takes into consideration the costs for the client. The team she heads are all very good at their jobs and it's clear there is a sound and professional management structure. Other companies are too keen to proceed all the way without really believing they can achieve a satisfactory conclusion to the process. It is just another fee to them. That’s not the case with Charlotte. The outcome is a balanced opinion so that you the client can make the decision based on the best available facts as well as being aware of the risks'. Another notes ‘Charlotte Wormstone is very good with clients, and a pleasure to work with – great fun'.
