“ I would like to compliment my solicitor Ben Menachem who has dealt in an exemplary fashion with a uniquely challenging 10 days in the wake of a completion date for the sale of a commercial property in Islington North London.

After a routine exchange of contracts when it came to the purported day of completion I and my fellow beneficiaries of sale were left holding our hands out in perplexity as to why the buyers were offering excuses. What was going on? Was a key person in their banking negotiations unable to proceed possibly because of Covid 19? There were wheels within wheels of which we had no knowledge.

Suffice it to say that Mr Menachem was able to reassure me, counselling patience rather than opting for a punitive legal remedy which would have involved the sellers in steep and unnecessary legal costs. Patience won out, which proves that the law can proceed, albeit a little bumpily, even in a time of Coronavirus.”

“ We completed our home move in June, beating the Stamp Duty deadline by 4 days, and were extremely satisfied with the way the whole selling and buying process was handled by Robert Rosenberg. He was super efficient and communicated with us constantly throughout the process. We highly recommend him. and OHR Stock Denton, to anyone looking for a painless and stress-free experience. ”

“The property law team at OGR provide an excellent service. Headed up by Michael Stock, the client communication is very, very good … quick responses to all emails and plenty of availability at all times. It makes a difference to have solicitors who are very responsive. This team comes highly recommended”

“We recently completed on our house move and could not have had a more positive experience with Tom from OHR Stock Denton (despite the highly infuriating and to put it lightly unreliable efforts from our buyers solicitors). Tom could not come more highly recommended by us.

We had decided to use OGR Stock Denton after reading positive reviews online after gaining a few quotes from different types of solicitor firm. We are really happy we went with them.

Tom was always contactable and extremely knowledgeable. There was no issue too big or too small for him to help us with and I really felt like he was there for us at every turn and honestly had our best interests. Unlike other firms, we knew exactly who was acting on our behalf and he went about thinks swiftly, with pace but throughly. Tom was friendly and gave us great advise on how to proceed when things got tricky. He seemed to genuinely care and that is rare.

Their prices are extremely reasonable considering the amount of work which went into our sale, from repeatedly chasing the rest of the chain to making sure all documents were in order, Tom was worth every single penny. The quoted amount matched what we ended up paying and the service was great value for money.”

“I was extremely happy with the advice provided by Michael Stock and Winston Kan of OGR Stock Denton LLP. They were very responsive and provided a very professional service”

“Winston Kan & Michael Stock of OGR Stock Denton LLP have been a great support throughout the process and Winston has demonstrated the highest levels of professionalism and genuine care throughout this difficult process. I highly recommend these lawyers, they are very attentive and honourable.”
