Mark Harris, Director of Legal Services, Next Group plc
“Julie White of BHW Solicitors has been providing commercial property legal services to Next Group plc for approximately 13 years.
I regard Julie as an extension to my in-house legal department. She has a level of understanding of the requirements of Next’s business which is not commonly found in external solicitors. As such I am always confident that by instructing Julie my Estates Department will be receiving the same level of service as provided by Next’s in-house team.
Julie has assisted us with some of our major acquisitions over this time and will always go the extra mile to help us achieve our deadlines.”
Mike Potts, Managing Director, Nationwide Platforms Limited
“Nationwide Platforms worked with Ed Nurse on the renewal of a 3 year partnership agreement with one of our top clients. The negotiations were complex, protracted and delicate. At all stages of the process Ed and his team were able to respond to the challenges that arose whether they were legal issues, advice on strategic choices or simply extremely short turnaround times including weekend and overnight responses. We successfully achieved the renewal in December and were very grateful for the professional assistance and personal dedication that Ed and his team provided in achieving our objective.”

Chris Bowman, Managing Director of Recticel Limited
“I worked with BHW for the last 5 years, they were introduced to me by a business friend who knew I was frustrated with the legal advice I had been getting and the ever increasing cost of advice!
I received advice from Julie White who was capably supported by Beverly Merrell mainly on property/real estate matters. Together I estimate we saved around £3 million over 5 years by applying a practical approach with good legal background support.
If you are looking for professional, friendly, cost effective legal advice on property matters I would thoroughly recommend BHW.”
