Mr Dutton


The professional, friendly service we received was reassurance that through our dealings with FBCMB we had protected our company. I trusted the advice and help I received from FBCMB. It was helpful that they would explain in detail the implications of the options available to us so I could make a decision fully aware of the ramifications my choice would have.

Mr Wingfield


Our organisation has worked with FBC Manby Bowdler for a number of years for both commercial and employment law advice. Often the situations we have are time sensitive and delicate in nature, which is never a problem for the employment law team.

I have worked closely with Tracy Worthington, who has always proved to be highly professional and knowledgeable, and also very empathetic and responsive to the needs of our business. Tracy has really got to understand our business needs very well, which reflects greatly in the advice and direction she is able to give us.
