  • Capital Law managed the case with extreme care, diligence and efficacy. Nicola, Carrie, and the whole team are incredibly efficient. Not only did they manoeuvre through a complex case involving many parties, they were always ready to help me and my team understand the different stages of the process, the options we had, and recommend next steps.

    Besides being experts in UK law, and the whole process involved, Capital Law was able to understand cybersecurity concepts really quickly, help us find the best experts in the field as well as understand the commercial implications of the overall process for our company and provide the best council possible.

  • We had the enormous pleasure of working with the very impressive Carrie Gwyther. In all of our interactions, via video conference, face-to-face meetings and email, she was always very clear, logical, analytical, knowledgeable and intelligent. As a result, her guidance was of the very highest order which gave us confidence that we are receiving the best possible advice and support. And somehow, she made what could’ve been a very difficult situation feel almost enjoyable!
