Testimonials

“Brilliant!  I received great advice and support throughout, always offered a balanced view and explained all possible scenarios and outcomes, both positive and negative in layman’s terms.  I was having to deal with being removed from a business in which I was a co-founder, director and shareholder and I honestly do not know how I would have fared had Jackson Osborne fighting for me.”

Doug Shields, company founder

 

“The work carried out was of great assistance to our company at a time when guidance and expert advice in employment matters was urgently required.  Complicated legislation often means that there is a ceiling to the work that can be carried out internally on employment issues and without specialist knowledge and advice that ceiling can restrict the effectiveness and balance of any business.  Obtaining the correct employment advice can often save time and money.  We saved many working hours and internal costs through Stephen and, I have no doubt, the assistance, advice and knowledge provided have prepared our company to take on any future employment challenges with confidence, safe in the knowledge that the preparatory work was professionally prepared and tailored to our company’s needs.”

Clive Davies, Managing Director, W.E.Dowds (Shipping) Ltd

 

“Just a quick note to thank you for your first-rate support and advice.  Employment and contract law affects any employer and it’s good to know we have premiership advice without the premiership fees.  Glad you’re on our side.”

Toni Watola, Finance Director, Bristol Rovers Football Club.

 

“Stephen recently worked with me on a litigation matter and I was genuinely impressed by a number of things. Firstly, despite obviously being very busy, he always did his level best to make himself available for discussions, even at short notice. In addition, Stephen has, in my opinion, a very well-developed talent for communication; he always provides enough detail and opinion to move the matter forward but never over-complicates the issue with un-necessary information. Finally, and probably most importantly, I found that Stephen is not afraid to share his own personal opinion on the best way to proceed. Some other solicitors will outline all the options but will not dare to inject even the slightest hint of a recommendation. Although the final decision rested with me, I always felt that Stephen was not afraid to spell out what he thought would be the most appropriate choice, having taken all relevant circumstances into consideration. For these reasons I would not hesitate to recommend Jackson Osborne to anyone seeking legal advice or services.”

“I felt passionately that I was treated unfairly.  As you know, I’d been to another firm, supposedly with specialist employment lawyers, but they couldn’t see the merit in my case and seemed scared away by the big firm lawyers.  Thanks to the ongoing help and support of Jackson Osborne, we taught them a lesson and you got me far more compensation than I had ever expected, a decent reference and, I feel, the acknowledgement I needed.  To get another £3,000 at the end for me agreeing to confidentiality was brilliant!  Your fees were worth every penny. ”

“What can I say, Stephen, but thank you?  Very simply, Jackson Osborne is my first port of call for expert advice on any employment matters.”

Zoe Harcombe, formerly HR Director of Welsh Water (and now a best selling author)

 

“I can’t thank you enough for all your work.  Very impressive and we couldn’t have wished for a better result, down to you no doubt.”

Anna Morris, Morrises of Usk

 

“Thank you again for your help.  I can’t think of a time when you haven’t been able to give me an answer straight away, or at least give me your ‘instinctive answer’ before checking (although I can’t think of a time when your first answer wasn’t right).  It’s absolutely fantastic to deal with people that don’t sit on the fence but tell us what we can do and help us do it.”

Jane Cridland, HR Director, Seconds Ahead

 

“Jackson Osborne never fails to impress.  The support and dedication in particular from Mr Stephen Jackson has been second to none and it has been a pleasure to deal with such a refreshing individual.
Business can be difficult in these current trying times as well as, fast moving and extremely high pressured, however, having sound, solid advice and support minimises the daily pressures faced by small businesses like ourselves.  Jackson Osbourne take time and effort to understand the needs of the business, the changes that frequently occur and ultimately make changes to accommodate most situations.  The PR Group would like to take this opportunity to wish Jackson Osbourne continued success…”

Julie Eccleshare, Director, The PR Group

 

“Having run businesses for over 20 years, I’m very choosy about which professionals I deal with.  When you have hundreds of employees it is important that managers get clear advice on employment and HR.  When it gets to the level where I need to be involved, it’s also good to know that your lawyer has a commercial and practical appreciation of the macro issues as well as the micro and Jackson Osborne fits the bill on all counts.”

Andrew Davies, Pricetag LLP

 

“We would be happy to recommend your services.  We were delighted you were able to bring sanity to the very confusing case of unfair dismissal recently that we were subjected to.”

Michael Harding, Michael Harding Art Materials LLP

 

“My solicitor, Stephen Jackson, told me Jewson’s [national builders’ merchant, Mr Jones’ employer] offer of £50,000 was risible and that I had to fight on.   I would have taken that, but I’m so pleased to have had Stephen’s support and cannot thank him enough. Jewson instructed an international law firm and a barrister from the same chambers as Cherie Blair.  I’d rather instruct Jackson Osborne any day.”

Jonathan Jones, for whom Jackson Osborne obtained the Wales’ highest discrimination compensation award
