What Our Clients Say

Success for you, is success for us. Read what our clients say about us.


"Outset supported us though a collective consultation project earlier this year. The team were responsive and available when we needed them. Dan and Lorraine were clearly very knowledgeable on the subject and the advice they gave us was commercial and pragmatic.

We valued their approach to delivering advice, if we didn’t understand something, they were patient and happy to explain concepts in a different way and the resources they provided us with were excellent.

Throughout the project they really did work in partnership with us and it very often felt like we were having a chat with a colleague rather than a lawyer which made a tough situation easier, we really couldn’t have got through the process without Outset’s support."

Corporate expertise

Our trusted partner for corporate and commercial legal advice. They fundamentally care about how to communicate with clients, where most solicitors  fail. They have a proactive approach to everything they do and their team is always reliable and very competent. They have a systematised approach to their workflow which is clearly evident .’

Sean Gorman is very personable and commercially astute. Wants to seek a solution that works for all.’

‘They understand how we work . This makes everything much more conducive for a long lasting relationship where information flows transparently and fluidly between all parties involved. We value their proactiveness, professionalism but also their softer skills, which allow for seamless integration with our systems and clients. In particular I would praise Jonathan Williamson, Abbe West and Sean Gorman.’


Employment expertise

‘Outset is really a one stop shop for anything related to employment; we’ve had fantastic, incisive and pragmatic advice relating to a complex immigration matter, IR35 and general employment issues. Led by Darren Stevens, the team is really commercial and practical and this is so helpful in our current business environment, particularly.’

‘We have worked with Lorraine Williams, Chloe Pereira and Darren Stevens and have had great support and advice from all three people in the team.’

‘The team has a breadth and depth of experience that provides confidence in the areas they support our business. They ensure that another member of the team is briefed in order to provide continuity of service for periods of holiday or other reasons a specific individual is not available. Generally there is always someone available to take an ad-hoc call. In relation to other organisations we have used, Outset will explain the risks of taking one course of action or another and are not risk adverse to the same degree that another firm may be. For instance, Outset were prepared to say that a disciplinary hearing could be held in the absence of an employee, where the previous firm we dealt with would never have got to that position and the employee would have remained on the books for years claiming stress related illness and potentially be covered by a Group Income Protection Policy.’

Flight Centre

"Whilst I know there will be an inevitable aftermath to get through, some of which no doubt we will need to call on expertise at Outset for assistance, I just wanted to take this opportunity to say an enormous thank you to the whole team at Outset who have helped us so tirelessly and diligently through the Collective Consultation process. It wasn’t easy by any stretch for any of us, but we couldn’t have got through without your guidance, support and many additional out of hours work. I know I speak on behalf of the whole Senior Team at Flight Centre – we are all very grateful for all your time and assistance."
