Tom Hiskey, Founder of The Law Wizard

In 2011 Tom Hiskey co-founded The Law Wizard Limited, a start-up company that provides software to legal firms and probate specialists.

The York-based enterprise was a big success and three years later Tom and his business partner Rob Blake decided to take the opportunity to sell the business on.

They approached Hethertons for legal advice to progress the sale and were advised by the Head of the firm’s MyBusinessLegal team, Simon Crack.

Hethertons oversaw the business sale transaction from start to finish and Tom said it was a positive experience throughout.

“It was very, very good. You always knew that everything was in hand and that every stage of the process was being dealt with as thoroughly as possible.

“When you are selling your own company it can obviously be a very nervous time, but Hethertons put us at ease. Simon is extremely approachable and always made sure to keep us up-to-date with where things were and made it clear about what we needed to do next.”

Having previously worked in the legal profession himself, Tom is better placed than most to assess how a solicitor has handled a matter.

“What I can say from personal experience is that solicitors can sometimes be a bit unclear, but that wasn’t something I encountered with Hethertons at all. Everything was explained very well.

“I have already recommended Hethertons to people and would continue to do so in future.”
