Ashton Carter and Keeley Miller has been totally amazing guiding us through our purchase of a house and business. It’s taken a while due to Covid lockdowns and problems agreeing a business contract, but we are finally there with the incredibly professional help they gave us. We would highly recommend these solicitors for any of your legal needs.
