5 Stars Ex President, University of East London Students' Union


Our students union had specific legal requirements in the areas of employment and commercial law as well as commercial property.  Our aim was to instruct the services of a law firm which had sound knowledge and expertise in those areas coupled with the experience of working with organisations like ours.  We eventually settled on RT Coopers because they appeared to be client focussed and matched our criteria.  The quality and consistency of their services have surpassed our expectations.  Not only are the lawyers proactive, they possess a thorough understanding of the law and the issues facing a students’ union. They deliver practical and reliable legal solutions which have allowed us to get on with the day-to-day running of the union.  This combined with their friendly and efficient approach, means we would not hesitate to recommend their services. Caston Matewu
