We recently instructed Haddletons to help us with legal compliance across our UK offices. We were very pleased with the way in which they worked with us, keeping to timelines and budget. It helped enormously that all the lawyers are senior and come with an inhouse background and quickly understood our needs: this facilitated quick and effective decision-making communicated in simple language. From a budgeting perspective it was helpful that they shared risk and only work on a fixed cost basis. We learnt that they do not have individual financial targets and their one objective is "to do an excellent job for the client". We like this approach, and it showed in how they looked after us. We would happily recommend Haddletons for commercial and compliance work and look forward to supporting them in the years ahead as it grows.
Haddletons supported Dr. Oetker to implement GDPR. James and the team worked seamlessly as part of our own team sharing their knowledge and expertise readily and with good humour. The team planned carefully, helped us prioritise tasks and then executed effectively against our plan. With their personal knowledge of working inhouse at other companies, they clearly understood our objectives and risks and provided excellent practical advice at a fixed and agreed cost. The online training module has proved accessible and informative for all. We would happily recommend their services to other organisations.
Haddletons have been instrumental with helping our business move forward across many aspects of our legal requirements. Debbie has provided us with a supportive and high quality service on creating our employment contracts and staff handbook. The guidance and supporting documentation have been a great asset to us with understanding our legal documentation. We would definitely recommend Haddletons.
Helena at Haddletons was able to provide valuable insight into what our Terms of Business would need to state so that the business can be protected comprehensively. Helena took the time to find out exactly what was important to us as a business before drafting a set of Terms. These were then revised over a 24 hour period before being delivered the final document, which we are very happy with. I would recommend Helena at Haddletons if you are looking for sound legal advice with a personal service.
Shereen understands the needs of our business. She is always proactive and responsive and acts with the utmost professionalism. We know we’re in good, safe hands.
The GDPR seminar I attended was not like a usual seminar or conference... it was extremely informative, fun and engaging. I left the seminar feeling more relaxed and knowing much more about the principles behind the new GDPR legislation. I would love to attend future sessions like this hosted by Haddletons to gain further insights from experts in this field. Thank you for giving me all the information I need to ensure that Azesta are fitting the guidelines and fulfilling the principles!
James was instrumental in advising our business through some complex organisational changes. He was approachable, knowledgeable, and readily-available when we needed him most. We would not hesitate to recommend Haddletons to other companies and will be using their services again in future.
GDPR Seminar: Excellent presentation and great speakers. The conference has helped me have a clear understanding of the new laws that come in on the 25th May and moving forward I am going to be using a lot of the methods/advice received in my day-to-day work. Thank you.
James recently provided high quality incident management training to our business. James was able to understand our requirements from the first point of contact and created a bespoke course tailored to our needs which engaged and informed our audience and suggested ways we could enhance our existing incident response procedures. He and his team over-delivered and did so on time, on budget and in a memorable and entertaining way. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to any business who want to reinforce and evaluate their own incident management planning.
Haddletons provides pragmatic guidance on a complex issue which everyone needs to understand. This introductory half-day GDPR workshop was time and money well spent. It provided an excellent overview of the wider context of GDPR and a balanced approach to meeting the spirit of the regulations without distracting the entire workforce 24/7. Lots of common sense and pragmatic suggestions with valuable resources being sent out by email for subsequent study and utilisation.
Haddletons made the subject of GDPR interesting and easy to follow with a good informative half-day presentation. James broke the subject matter down into manageable bite size pieces and provided information by email along the way, which I like, to avoid unnecessary printing.
Kevin attended a practical half-day workshop:Preparing for GDPR
This was the best use of three hours of time. I gained a huge amount of information and practical help for my company to comply with GDPR. The session was extremely clear and hugely informative with expert advice and guidance from James.
We approached Haddletons to find a solution for our training needs and were quickly introduced to Keith Jackson. Keith was able to understand our requirements from the first point of contact and create and deliver a course tailored to our needs. The training was engaging, practical, focused, thought provoking and excellent value for money. Overall it was a brilliant course and we would certainly use Keith and Haddletons again.
Keith was very knowledgeable and was able to tailor the whole day to our individual needs. The content and presentation was consistently high quality and engaging. The practical examples were useful and prompted interesting and focused discussions and exchanges. There was a lot of content to get through but Keith’s time management was excellent. I would have no hesitation in recommending Keith and would certainly use him again.
I’ve lost count of the times that James has helped us and I enjoy working with him and his team. I like the fact he offers fixed prices and is so readily available. He tends to ask the right questions and sees the bigger picture. This means we get the right answer for the business.
As a three year old business, it was our first time dealing with legal documents such as contracts/scope of services and intellectual property assignments, for a relatively large retainer arrangement with a well-known UK food manufacturer/brand. We engaged Haddletons to draft our contracts ahead of the deal being agreed. From point of first contact to receiving our contracts, Haddletons made the whole process straightforward and understandable. They asked lots of questions to build a thorough understanding of our business and services, before advising on suitable terms, payment and delivery terms and ownership of IP. After this, Sarah looked after everything, provided drafts, guidance and revised editions until we were happy with the finished result. The procurement person responsible for signing on the client side even remarked how impressive our paperwork and proposal was "very unusual to see such a well drafted and detailed set of terms". As a result, we have already recommended Haddletons to several other businesses, two of which have gone on to become clients. As we continue to grow, we are confident to have Haddletons by our side - we cannot recommend them enough.
When we had a problem with malicious gossip that affected our business, James listened carefully to our concerns. Together we devised a strategy that halted the issue without court proceedings (important to us as a small company). But it did not stop there, he helped us turn these events to our benefit to grow customer goodwill and business. All at a pre-agreed fixed price.
James’ knowledge of the new data protection laws is excellent, and he has really helped us with his knowledge and experience of the subject. Having dealt with this subject when he was Group Legal Counsel at a pharmaceutical company, he has a strong understanding of the practical implications of data protection.
I always know with James and Haddletons that if I need help they will be there to talk to. Recently we needed extra support in our commercial team and one of the Haddletons team slotted in to help us. We like dealing with good people who are not only excellent at their job but also fun to deal with. I have worked with James for many years and would recommend him and his team to others.
As the previous CFO at Kloeckner, the bribery training James gave was one of our most popular training courses designed to complement Kloeckner’s strong compliance programme as a large listed company. James has an ability to really engage people and get them to think about what bribery means to them, avoiding legal terminology. Watching them take his “bribes” mid-training is a highlight! I would definitely recommend this training.
When I decided to become a solicitor, I didn’t know how I was going to be supervised. Despite their fantastic support there was nobody at IDHL who could supervise me. With James as my supervisor, I can talk openly with him and my confidence and legal ability has blossomed. He is always on the end of the phone and comes in regularly to talk to me and my managers about progress against my objectives. I would describe James as an excellent listener and supporter with lots of experience and practical tips to pass on.
