“ You will always get straight and expert advice from Holly. She’s not in the game of telling you what you want to hear, but what you must hear. She will lay out the options clearly with unswerving, unbiased professionalism so that you can clearly see the road ahead and make the right decisions”.
Simon Lowe - Jagged Globe
"I consulted Mark Serby for advice regarding redundancy. Mark was very helpful, providing clear and straightforward advice and guidance. This helped me to decide the best way forward and equipped me to negotiate from a well informed position."
"I’ve always found Holly to be very responsive and helpful. She responds to my requests for support in a way that increases my understanding of the legislation that we have to act on and implement. Where there is scope for interpretation or options to consider she is forthcoming in highlighting these and I have always found her willing to spend time discussing these with me."
Sue Barraclough - Westfield Health
