What Our Clients Say

Richard Stephens of Vanderpump and Sykes attention to detail and legal expertise enabled me to reach a very good settlement in my employment dispute, which started with very little hope of any kind of success which would have resulted in both reputation damage and would have been financially detrimental too. Richard was very approachable and very professional in conducting my case from start to finish. Highly recommended.

Jack Georgiou, Hammersmith, London.

I would like to express my thanks to Mr Richard Stephens. He has been extremely helpful to me in one employment matter in August of this year and he also assisted me with my recent passport application. Richard has been very professional and very helpful to me in resolving both matters to my satisfaction. As a result of Richard's hard work I have recommended your organisation to my family members for a specific matter they wish to discuss. I look forward to working with Richard Stephens again in the near future & I thank him sincerely for his support.
