What Our Clients Say About Us
“I have known Simon professionally for close on twenty years and Sharon for a good ten. It was to them that I chose to transfer my consultancy practice in 2000 and in terms of their technical expertise, inventive solutions and general client care, I am convinced that I made the right decision. Since then I have had occasion to refer to both Simon and Sharon on a number of knotty issues and have been unfailingly impressed by their command of the subject.”
“I was positively impressed by the depth of the analysis. The initial response was also very good. Most importantly I appreciate the high availability of the advisor to timely answer my phone calls looking for clarifications.”
Mr S Manavski

"Simon McKie's expert advice in respect of a professional negligence claim concerning taxation advice was invaluable. He clearly explained the extremely complex provisions which were relevant to the claim and identified the key tax issues in respect of duty, damage, quantum and mitigation. The quality of his advice and the clarity of his oral and written explanations were instrumental in assisting our client in their defence and resolution of this matter."
Gavin Henderson, Partner, Clyde & Co, Solicitors
"Sharon and Simon McKie are a formidable litigation support team. Penningtons and McKie & Co acted for a client in relation to an appeal to the Court of Appeal. McKie & Co produced a 136 page report in record time which was a comprehensive and highly technical paper containing a detailed analysis of the Special Commissioners' decision. It was a clear and succinct summary of both the law and relevant principles from which we and Counsel derived tremendous benefit. We cannot help but commend them on a high degree of competence and quality of service."
