What Our Clients Say

Presenter was excellent: clear, topical & structured well


Thank you. I got a lot out of it. Look forward to other webinars and increasing my knowledge.


Rainey Collins Webinars and Newsletters provide excellent insights. 


Claire is super on to it and very knowledgeable. Great comms and always has several options and keeps us updated with our legal stuff! Highly recommend. 


Excellent communication. Senior partner replying to my query in a timely way and very helpful advice. How cool is that!


Alan from Rainey Collins agreed to help me in the middle of a very difficult process and from the moment I made contact was incredibly responsive,  thoughtful, legally astute as well as practically minded. Alan would either respond virtually straight away, or let me know when he could respond ... When Alan drafted, the work was of the highest quality. We have decided to put all our affairs with Rainey Collins and feel very confident we are in good hands.


Went to see Alan in 2019 with a tricky situation at work. His advice was reassuring, practical and pragmatic ... When it started to get difficult with work, as we expected it would, Alan was always there, offering sage advice, and being a rock in what would otherwise have been super stressful. Like all experts he doesn’t shout about it and his advice seems to come from a position of strength from very in-depth knowledge.


I have been using Rainey Collins lawyers for the last 10 years. They are my "go to" for any legal advice. I highly recommend them. They are professional and give informative advice.


Even though we get emotional we DO appreciate how much Rainey Collins respects the court and the law as we like to work with people that have integrity and are thorough. They are a perfect balance as a law firm; fair, priced well but reasonable, communicative, allow us to feel and participate in our case and treats us kindly and with respect. I wish they were here in the States and could be my Business lawyers.


We have used Rainey Collins for 16 years and they have advise us on personal and commercial matters. They have a good depth of knowledge and their advice is always professional and accurate. Great to deal with personally and professionally.


Rainey Collins has provided employment advice for us for the past 8 years. At all times they have been extremely helpful, efficient and caring. I highly recommend their services


Very professional, quick and effective service. I sent a generic email on the Friday morning as I was having a dispute with a motor vehicle dealer, in the afternoon a partner replied and on Monday a letter was written. Two days later I had the outcome I was hoping for.
