Nigel Boyes, Owner, Jean Barrington Ltd

Jean Barrington Limited is a bespoke stationery supplier, set up by Nigel and Jean Boyes 25 years ago.

The firm, based in Kirkbymoorside, manufactures a variety of gift stationery and social stationery and now distributes for a number of American companies.

The company were referred to Hethertons Solicitors when they were seeking corporate and commercial legal advice. Subsequently they have continued to receive ongoing guidance through the MyBusinessLegal team.

“Hethertons have been excellent,” said Nigel. “One of the matters we brought to them had got quite complicated, however they remained calm and professional throughout.

“What I’m looking for from a solicitor is somebody who is efficient. I want to know that if I need help with something that I’m able to just pick up the phone and they’ll be able to deal with it. I’ve always found that with Hethertons.”

Throughout his dealings with Simon Crack, head of the Hethertons MyBusinessLegal team, and Jo Yeates, who leads the firm’s employment team, Nigel said that he had always welcomed their plain-language approach.

“That’s been excellent,” he added. “They never try to confuse you with a lot of complicated terms, they’ve always used simple language that you can understand.”

And Nigel said he wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Hethertons to other people.

“I’d have no reason not to. I’ve found them professional, friendly and always able to get the job sorted.”
