I have worked with Elliott for just over two years on a number of complex matters and he has been dedicated and hard-working throughout. He is professional and commercial, yet not afraid to push back and challenge. I look forward to continuing to work with him.

Elliott Brookes has been my lawyer over this past year, he is a very professional young man and most reassuring when sometimes – it is very much needed.

From our initial conversation (when we really had no idea what to do) Elliott was open and honest, provided us with sound advice and discussed various options as our case developed, always taking on board our views to agree on the best course of action. Throughout a very difficult and stressful time, Elliott was extremely supportive, efficient and thorough; ultimately, achieving the best possible outcome we could’ve hoped for. We would absolutely recommend Elliott and all of his team that supported with our case.
