You have been an amazing lawyer and more importantly an outstanding advisor. You were always straightforward with me and never told me what I want to hear, I admire these qualities. You always answered my calls and made me feel comfortable. It's a unique quality and again I can not thank you enough.
“Very sincerely, there is no way for me to thank [you] adequately for the brilliance and panache with which you flourished your legal swords and decapitated the AG’s office. A big case for me, of course, a big case for you.”
Mr D & Others
“We have all appreciated very much the knowledge and experience you brought to this matter and on behalf of my colleagues and myself, thank you. It has been my pleasure working with you as you have been professional, friendly and supportive for which I similarly thank you.”
Minerva Data Limited
“Andrew represented us in litigation required to obtain monies owed from the sale of our business and also the costs in our case Morris versus Knox Trust and MBL. We went to the High Court in December 2015 and Andrew prepared our case superbly. Andrew was always completely professional and helpful. He worked within the required timescales and we achieved a favourable outcome in December 2016. We have complete confidence in Andrew’s ability and would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone requiring legal guidance.”
“We have worked closely with Andrew on a complex litigation involving breach of fiduciary duty, conflict of interest, fraud and constructive trust in IOM. He is a very able, quick and energetic lawyer. He is adept at commercial litigation and has the ability to be precise and commercial at the same time. He goes into detail meticulously, is methodical and smart. He is calm at all times. We strongly recommend him as a commercial litigator.”
Ballacorey Wheat Limited and Gem Global Yeild Fund Limited
“I engaged Andrew to act for me following the sudden death of my husband in February. Part of winding up my late husband’s estate involved closing a busy restaurant, making redundancies (some of which were quite acrimonious) and dealing with a very aggressive and unsympathetic landlord. All were brought to a very satisfactory conclusion.“I have found Andrew to be patient, considerate and professional at all times. Indeed, he has gone beyond the call of duty. I never thought any solicitor would have been so attentive and thoughtful.“Andrew continues to work with the same courteous and professional manner. I consider myself very lucky to have Andrew fighting my corner for me and certainly wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone.”
“Andrew has been excellent in providing solid and logical advice in these ongoing litigation proceedings. Of special note is his easy yet direct approach which seeks to gain resolution rather than unnecessary conflict.”
Hartford Homes Limited
“Andrew represented me in respect of two difficult and challenging matters. The first was a claim against me which involved complicated issues of duty or care and limitation and which went as far as the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council (Supreme Court) in which Mr Marshall was entirely successful and the second was a disciplinary matter in respect of which Mr Marshall’s strategy was both pragmatic and, given the nature of the matter, resulted in a most satisfactory outcome. Mr Marshall is a litigator in the traditional sense, fearless, well prepared, with good advocacy skills and a sensible pragmatic approach. Mr Marshall remained thoroughly unfazed and professional. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him to other parties.”
“I have found Andrew to be extremely well informed and knowledgeable and has always been available when we have had questions. Mr Marshall is a very honest individual that always tells the situation as it is rather than trying to make things look possibly better than they are, which under our personal circumstances is a breath of fresh air. As a family we would like to also say that Mr Marshall is very confident in his approach to his work and has a very calming demeanour. I would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Marshall to anybody looking for legal representation.”
“Andrew represented me at the Advocates Disciplinary Tribunal where the case was dismissed. The case was a vexatious claim by an aggrieved litigant-in-person in a civil case. Mr Marshall showed an in-depth knowledge and experience of the process and navigated me through the stresses of the antiquated process, which took the best part of three years. He made the process straightforward and stress-free as possible so that it did not have an undue impact on my caseload.”
“I have been impressed with Andrew’s exceptional client service, attention to detail and methodical approach which combines practical and strategic thinking with wise and concise legal judgment to provide sensible, pragmatic and reassuring advice.”
“I dealt with Andrew, who from the outset, listened sympathetically to my case and advised me with professional diligence. Throughout our meetings, Andrew has always displayed to me his in-depth planning in order to be in a suitable position for each stage of my case. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Andrew’s professional service to anyone else.”
