"I have known LVW Law for many years and needed their services again recently. I had returned to the Island after losing my parents and a divorce after a long marriage. They were approachable, kind, understanding and sympathetic and got me over the line of a complex purchase, alteration to my will, and drew up a new power of attorney. Thank you LVW Law!"
"In 2019 I sought the advice of Laurence Vaughan-Williams on Manx company law concerning a very complicated corporate structure. From the very beginning Laurence had a full grasp of the matter and gave sound and very helpful advice. We also had a telephone conference where Laurence, polyglot as he is, analysed the facts and the law, also with respect to foreign law aspects. Whenever I have again a problem on Manx company or tax law I will ask him for his advice and help."
“A highly professional, but approachable way of doing business. LVW made what could have been a difficult situation easy to deal with, and brought to a timely conclusion a matter which could have dragged on for much longer.”
“Laurence is incredibly thorough, commercially minded, and very dynamic. He is very creative in providing practical solutions to his clients. He is a true “master” in planning his case and delivery to the court. His experience and unbelievable persuasive powers allows judges to give considerable weight to his claim and very clear and precise presentation and his skill in cross-examination, which has to be seen to be believed.”
“He has given us – and others I know – outstandingly high quality legal and practical advice. He is the best man I know to have in your corner.”
"We have enjoyed working with Laurence and respect his knowledge of the law and in particular the commercial application thereof. We would highly recommend him."
