What do my clients say?

“All of my instructions are derived from “word of mouth” referrals. I spend nothing on advertising. For example, a new job came in very recently, which came from a new client who was referred by an existing client. This really is the ultimate compliment as to my expertise” Zoe Tranter

Give something back – pro bono

“Where I can I try and take at least one matter on a pro bono or low fee basis for somebody who genuinely needs help where they could not ordinarily afford good legal advice. It is not financial gain that is a driving force, but more, a matter of some situations offending my sense of fair play, for which I feel compelled to step in and provide help to such individuals” Zoe Tranter

Values & Ethos
Passion
"I love what I do. I think that this is an essential ingredient in running a business. You work hard, it cannot be about financial gain alone. There has to be something more. I have a job that means I am mistress of my own destiny, that other people are reliant upon me, that challenges me but also invigorates me. The hours can be long, but it does not feel like that. I could do what I do all day, without noticing the time" Zoe Tranter
Values & Ethos
Ambition and a willingness to learn
"You must set goals and you must always have a contingency plan and conceive of every eventuality that you possibly can. You need to have a vision for your business. I had a strong vision for my company, with a strong message and now have a fantastic, ever growing client base that have wholeheartedly bought into that message over the last eleven years of trading. I am always looking to broaden my experience and I am not afraid of a challenge – it is how I have grown both personally and professionally. I have done this by securing larger clients and contracts and also by training more junior members of the team, thus strengthening my team building and management skills" Zoe Tranter
Values & Ethos
Discipline
You must be disciplined and keep your vision and your goals in mind at all times. Set task lists, follow up on those telephone calls, do not leave your desk until the client has their contract. Work harder than your competitors, cultivate your contacts to their upmost in order to ensure that you are one step ahead.
Values & Ethos
Confidence
"I am a very positive person, even through the darkest times in my life, I have always seen a purpose or a lesson in what I have been through. Life really is what you make it" Zoe Tranter
Values & Ethos
Innovation
"My company uses state of the art IT and communication and document production systems, which means that my clients have a 24 hour service, only ever really provided by the larger, city centre based firms. This was the case from the beginning, and we are always looking for that next unique selling point" Zoe Tranter
Values & Ethos
People
"I am from a “non traditional” legal background and I am therefore passionate about giving others of a similar background, who may not have even considered a career in law, a chance" Zoe Tranter

A commitment to Birmingham and the Midlands

“I have spent most of my career in Birmingham and the Midlands over the last twenty years, and I have a special bond with the city and surrounding areas. For example, when at Bevan Ashford (now Bevan Brittan), I was part of the team that helped promote the firm in the city and raise their profile in the local business community. I have also worked with Hammonds (then Edge Ellison) one of the stalwart Birmingham firms of which Lord Digby Jones also hails. I am very passionate about promoting the city, one such example being making representations on social media as to the need to host more high profile commercial property / real estate sector events such as MIPIM, for example, in Birmingham”
