I have been working with Jenny in a professional capacity for several years. We are delighted that Jenny identified a gap in the Modbury property market and Devon Law has provided us with conveyancing services of the highest standard since its foundation.
We deal with a diverse range of premium properties and need an experienced yet dynamic solicitor to recommend to our clients. Jenny’s approach to her own flourishing business is one that many of our affluent clients share, and hence Jenny totally understands their needs and motivations. I would say that Jenny has been struck by a flash of inspiration when formulating the way Devon Law does business. Our clients are extremely busy people, particularly our investment property purchasers, and they require a flexible solicitor who can communicate with them outside normal working hours. Jenny offers a totally bespoke service, which has been greatly appreciated by our property developer clients. Devon Law is a solicitor’s firm for the twenty-first century, it is completely fresh, and our clients simply love Jenny’s more informal yet professional and friendly demeanour.
I am also the Chair of Modbury and District Chamber of Commerce and am thrilled that Jenny has joined us and is taking an active role in the Chamber. She has such refreshing and innovative ideas which she brings to the forums. It is very evident that Devon Law is committed to enhancing the business profile of Modbury and pushing forward new ideas to revitalise commerce. Jenny’s strong recognition that Devon Law is a business, and perception of herself as an entrepreneur, is extremely popular with the business community. It is uplifting and inspiring to see a solicitor’s firm being part of the local community.
I have been working with Jenny professionally over the last few years. I was introduced to Jenny initially as a client and now we confidently refer clients to one another. I find Jenny and the business approach she has adopted for Devon Law quite unique in the legal world.
Devon Law are so easy to talk to, professional, yet down to earth and relaxed with their clients. I have great confidence in their ability to deal with the most complex issues. Jenny in particular always offers straight answers to direct questions, which is not often the case when conversing with solicitors. Devon Law prides itself in offering jargon-free advice and making complex problems much more clear-cut; a phrase that is frequently used by solicitors, but so often not delivered. This is a novel approach, very appealing to accountants and our diverse spectrum of clients. Devon Law promises to be an incredibly successful and well-respected firm.
There is one specific point that highlights Jenny’s innovative approach to her business: Jenny and I have been working in partnership to offer comprehensive legal and financial advice to our clients. This collaborative relationship provides our clients with an excellent and efficient service.
Jenny has acted as my solicitor for the last 4 years on both commercial and property matters and represented my business interests to an excellent standard during that period. I run my own company, Mitchell Property Developments, and have a varied property portfolio.
In the past, I’ve struggled with the availability of my solicitors as I require business advice from my solicitor during the day, in the evenings, and at weekends. I am often on-site during the traditional working day and not available to discuss matters with my solicitor. Jenny has offered me a tailored service where she will visit me on-site, at my office, and often after-hours.
This is highly unusual for a solicitor and very refreshing. Jenny has stepped into my shoes and looked at what I need as a client; this is an innovative skill. She understands that owners of small businesses are time-pressured, work within tight profit margins, and require very bespoke advice on a wide variety of business interests. I feel Jenny’s approach is particularly helpful for business entrepreneurs like myself and other solicitors should consider following her example and offering a more flexible service.
Firms like Devon Law represent the future in my opinion and receiving the innovation award would send a positive message to other solicitors, encouraging them to review their business practice.
