Client

I have known John in a professional capacity for a number of years – having first become acquainted with his firm during my time in Bangor. Having moved to London, where there are a dearth of Law Firms to choose from, I remained in contact with John as my trusted “go to” adviser because of his strongly pragmatic approach and detailed knowledge of things like commercial law and IP etc. John combines a strong and certain approach with a clearly balanced appreciation of all the fine detail and, in this, he generates ‘high quality’ and ‘good value’ advice which compares favourably with any legal competitor. A really strong example of professionalism.

Phil Ryan - CEO of the International Compliance Organisation

That’s incredible. Thanks very much John. Without trying to sound too condescending you’ve done a fantastic job there. Very much appreciated.

Neil Short - Enviroclear Site Services Ltd

Thank you so much Mr Devoy. I will be eternally grateful for your hard work, dedication and belief.

Client

A fantastic result….The last two and half years have been extremely difficult as you know but I wouldn’t have had the result I got if it hadn’t been for you.

Client

Mr. John Devoy has been remarkable in his conduct and exceptional in the outcomes he has attained for us. Mr. Devoy has a track record of success in managing complex legal matters, client needs and achieving outstanding results. He is practical in his approach and transparent with his clients about their matters. His deepest strength is the trust that he gains with his client and the peace of mind they have that their best interest will always be at the center of his focus.
