I am pleased to say that I receive very positive feedback from both my clients and from other professionals who have seen me at work. I am grateful that they have taken the time to give me their views of the quality of service that I have provided them with.
My clients rightly expect their business with me to remain confidential. The testimonials below are presented with my client's permission To maintain confidentiality I only display their initials and their industry.
I recently sought advice from Mr Barton regarding a regulatory issue and from the outset found him to be very professional, empathetic and knowledgeable. He immediately put me at ease and at such a stressful time I felt very supported and reassured. His actions on my behalf led to the matter being resolved quickly and efficiently. I could not thank him enough.
We instructed David following the commencement of an SRA investigation into how the firm conducted a large quantity of a certain type of legal work. He dealt effectively with a series of detailed enquiries by carefully explaining how each one was conducted and why the SRA was wrong to regard them as improper. His written work was very detailed and ultimately very effective. He was supportive, attentive and knowledgeable and knew exactly how to deal with the investigation. His experience was invaluable when we were presented with a wide range of serious allegations that were all in fact misconceived. The investigation lasted over 2 years and eventually concluded with a complete withdrawal of allegations by the SRA. This was a massive result for the firm and we were enormously grateful for this. We would not have achieved this without David’s diligence and attention to detail and have no hesitation in commending his work to anyone.

I would like to thank David Barton for all his help during the most stressful time of my life. If it was not for him I do not know how I would have got through it. He advised and guided me through an SRA investigation and prosecution, and appeared for me as my advocate before the SDT when virtually all the charges were dismissed.
I would without a doubt recommend David for dealing with any SRA investigation or prosecution.

As you might imagine I am hugely relieved that the SRA has backed off and accepted your written representations.
I can't thank you enough for your help and professionalism! I am just so pleased that I instructed you.

David worked tirelessly and constructively with the SRA and brought about a very satisfactory conclusion to issues for me. His professionalism and calm and caring manner made a very unpleasant experience much more bearable. I would recommend him to anyone who needs good advice and a clear head.
Through no fault of mine I found myself the subject of an investigation by the SRA when it inspected accounting and transaction records at the firm which employed me. It was an enormously worrying time for me, and David knew exactly how to deal with the SRA Investigation Officer to ensure that my position was understood. David was extremely supportive, and knowledgeable, and his sense of humour made what was one of the most stressful times of my life almost bearable. I felt in very safe hands and he brought the whole saga to a conclusion with my reputation intact. David was very accessible and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. I could not have wished for a better advocate fighting my corner and have no hesitation in recommending the services of David to anyone finding themselves in a similar situation.
David has guided us through investigations instituted by both the SRA and the Legal Ombudsman. In all instances no action was taken, and quite properly so as all were completely misconceived.
David is responsive and knowledgeable in circumstances that were stressful and brought a calm and authoritative approach to his work. He was thorough and robust with the regulators. And his written work was timely and showed attention to detail.
Having someone outside the firm plainly on top of what he was doing was immensely helpful. It enables us to get on with other things whilst he deflected the pressure and ultimately brought things to an end.
A superb litigator with a detailed approach to any given task coupled with a friendly and persuasive personality.
David brings a wealth of knowledge and years of experience to the benefit of his clients who feel safe in his capable hands throughout.
David has succeeded for us in every case he has taken on and his easy manner make him a pleasure to deal with at a time when one may feel under stress and anxiety.
