Phil and I have dealt with a lot of law firms from small, medium and large sizes and Hillhouse are different. Much more customer centric, personal and don't do lawyer speak to make their clients feel inferior so thank you for creating a great culture within your business which flows through to the client. It's reassuring to know that your business values are in synergy with ours

As our business has grown and changed over the years, we have relied upon and benefited from the commercial legal advice provided by Hillhouse Legal Partners. We have avoided many risks by having strong corporate legal documents and advice.

We have been dealing with Hillhouse Legal Partners for approximately 20 years now. During this time, we have enjoyed watching the company grow and evolve without there being any sacrifice of professionalism. Hillhouse has supplied us with expert advice, unwavering courtesy and professional efficiency and diligence. In recent years we have dealt with Michael Morris whom we consider to be an integral part of our financial decisions. We have no hesitation at all in recommending Michael and the Hillhouse team to any prospective client.
