Partners For Improvement in Islington

I cannot thank you and your transcriber enough for doing such brilliant work with such poor quality recordings and in such a short period of time.


Trowers & Hamlins LLP

A huge thank you to you and Melissa for an absolutely brilliant, seamless service – don’t know what we would have done without you!


Judge B.

...the transcribers do such a sterling job and in speedily producing the transcripts, both electronically and on paper, are of great assistance to the parties and indeed to the Tribunal in being able to go back and look at things that otherwise would have to be recalled from memory.  So it is a wonderful service and I thank them for doing that so efficiently.


Higgs & Sons

I must say that Counsel and I were mightily impressed with the service provided.  We had transcripts within a couple of hours of the court day ending on each day.  The quality of the transcripts was superb. 



Thank you for another exceptionally accurate transcription – the microphone seems to have picked up every detail!
